bait for minnow trap?
I never tried trapping minnows. Usually use a cast net. but right now the big carp are just tearing it up. I have a few traps that I bought at a yard sale. What is a good bait? or do I even need to bait them?

I prefer the cheapest dried cat food that I can by and also dried bread, dried rolls or similar (broken/crushed up in small pieces). And yes, you do need to bait them unless they are as thick as they used to be in Electric Lake.

Chopped onions and wadded up white bread.
