A comment titled: Fish Trap Bait in response to a report titled: Snapping Turtle Aquarium Help, where to find small catfish?

Sorry forgot to mention,, use white styraphoam,,I beileive it is the color that attracts the fish,,so when it gets discolored after couple weeks, just put a new piece in and replace the older discolored piece...Smile..Good luck..JD

I have found the best bait to catch small pond perch,,,and also catchs,, many small catfish,, is to use a piece of styraphoam,,about 3inch by 3 inch flat piece, and tie it in middle of trap at bottom so that it floats half way up towards top and stays about middle of cage or trap. This has worked for me in private ponds in the past..I have also caught many small fish with the throw or cast net,,probably a 3 to 3 1/2 diameter for a beginner..Good luck,,pretty turtle..smile JD
