I have actually tried otter for skunk bait when I was in a pinch for bait. Not trying that again!

Thanks for the good memories!  My grandfather set up a 'rat trap' trap line for me to 'run'.  We actually caught 2 ermine and he showed me how to skin them and then stretched them inside out over a paint stir stick.  I took them home and they stunk up the back porch for years before my mom finally got rid of them.  I was  5yo :)

Awesome. How late will you keep those lines running?
