Fisher Trapping

Did anyone have any luck with fisher in the southern part of 4E? I was wondering if it would be worth it to get a tag and try to target them as well as a bobcat since I will already be there.

I love The Grateful Dead

They are around. All caught as incidentals of course.

Re: Fisher Trapping

He has some GREAT picks! Fishers have a large loop but if you’re going to be running a line during that time frame you might as well go for it.

Re: Fisher Trapping

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also I am running all Mb 550 and 450 I wonder if they can set one of them off?

I caught this one in an MB450 last November. If you have a snare pole, they are not that difficult to release.


The horizon is your starting point.

Re: Fisher Trapping

Nice pic. I was wondering how a release would go. Not sure if they get rowdy and come at you or not.

Re: Fisher Trapping

Yes they will set the trap off. They are very aggressive at working sets. I have caught them 4 coiled #3 Montana's. I have had mixed reactions during release. Some are docile and some are pretty mean. You never know what your gonna get!

If you plant it, they will come!

Re: Fisher Trapping

I have 2 so far, none in season. 1 was in a mb 450, the other in a sleepy ck. # 3 reg.jaw. Both was docile to release. I cut the handle area out of a plastic milk crate, put it over the animal, trap was outside, took trap off and it flipped the crate off. They make a noise like a dove cooing, kinda neat. A friend of mine caught his first few years back, he called me on the way to the hospital to get his thumb sewed back on, yes they do bite.
