Body Grip Trap with Survey Tape as Bait Catches Muskrat

Can you catch muskrats using survey tape as bait?

Well, 330 MaNiaC was curious and decided to try it out.

Watch this video and see how to catch muskrats using survey tape incredibly as bait.

Being able to improvise will make you a much better trapper. This guy thought that flagging tape on a size 110 conibear body grip trap just might catch a muskrat, and boy was he surprised.

The brightly colored flagging tape mimics a chunk of root that the muskrats prefer to eat. When they swim up to take a nibble, they are caught by the head for a quick humane catch.

Trappers need to be flexible about trying new ideas out on the trapline. It might just help them put more fur on the stretchers and a few more dollars in their pockets.
