Re: will rotten fish work for Raccoon????
I have never used fish, fresh or otherwise, for coon.
Some trappers report having good success when using canned fish like jack mackerel bought at discount stores.
When I chose to target a raccoon, I often used a deep dirt hole set with one ounce of fish oil poured directly down the bait hole.
Other times I used a charred ear of field corn tossed in the hole.
I do not know if a three or four inch fish would have enough substance to throw off much of an odor.
I trap mink because I don't know any better
