Coon bait help

I have a creek near bu that's loaded with 5 to 6 inch creek chubs. I want to catch a gallon off these and put them up for cool bait. I plan on using 1 cup of salt per gallon of fish. What is could I use and how much per gallon. I was even thinking of grinding up some crayfish and adding them. Maybe some rat glands. Jus don't know how much to use. I don't want to freeze this bait

Re: Coon bait help

If you use salt and don`t freeze I would think the salt will dry the fish rock hard and make it not have much smell but I could be wronge.

Re: Coon bait help

You might want to broaden your trappline, just catch a bunch of those creek chubs and freeze them in water. When mink season comes in you can catch coon and mink in pocket sets along the water. When frozen in water then melted right before you use them for bait they seem to very fresh.

The horizon is your starting point.

a layer of salt,a layer of fish.coninue till the bucket is full.any juice that floats up later can also be used as a liquid bait.rock salt can be used also,its cheaper.
