Time to move your sets to a new location.

Take a deep breath, relax, be patient. The weather hasn't been the best lately. If you are setting on good sign you will continue to catch. Don't get frustrated it is too early in the season for that. Have fun with your trapping or it will become more like work than a hobby. Good luck this season and be careful.

Coon are nomads. They can be "here today, gone tomorrow." They go to a new food source.
You just aren't set up right where they are.
As far as them not moving, that's debatable.
Rainy above freezing weather is coon trapping weather, IMO. Always did best on warmish rainy nights.

Yodel and Oldmink are dead on....too early to get frustrated. Relax. Be patient. There's a lot out there for coons to eat at the moment and they are wandering their way through the buffet. Move your sets around a little if you'd like. Most importantly...be safe, have fun, and stay positive.
