    Default Coyote or Lynx in a crab pot??

    Has anyone ever tried to put a coyote or lynx carcas in a crab pot for bait? I have herd of putting skulls in a pot to have them cleaned by the sand fleas but I wonder how it would work for crab bait.

    Last summer had a fishing buddy use his black bear skull in a shrimp pot: those bad little critters cleaned it nicely & he pulled up a pot load of shrimp. Id think the carcass would be worthy of a good bait as well.

    Sand Fleas give me nightmares.

    I thought you were talking about a new way to catch coyote and lynx.

    No, but there are lots of places along the Oregon coast where mink carcasses are real popular for crab bait. Mink farmers sell them to recreational crabbers for a few dollars. Some folks won't use anything else. Apparently, the mink oil from the carcass really brings in the crabs. But I've heard mink oil can be really tough to clean off the traps after you're done. The smell just doesn't go away. Gotta store those traps outside.....
