I am wanting to spend the weekend catching a few flat-heads by using bream, for bait! I have 2 clover-leaf traps and would like to know, what is your preference to baiting the traps?

I thought perch traps were illegal in fresh water.

Thanks tom! Iv caught thousands of bream and mudcats in traps, used a dozen or more different baits, but never onion slices. Will have to try that one. Hang around here enough and you can learn something every day.

you can use bait traps, can only be so big, forget how big though, we use cat food or dog food in a cheese cloth.

Go buy a loaf of the cheapest bread and throw 3 or 4 slices in there for boat..the only play you can't trap bait is public water..meaning any lake or river ect..trap them out of a private pond..I specifically go after the blue rain perch or goggleye some folks call them

A Granola bar should work, although I've yet to try it.
