Put out a dozen rat traps under the ice.I checked them and found 3 conis sprung with a cattail shoot stuck in it and my bait missing. all three were near the same spot Somone must have schooled these rats.
Not likely. I've hundreds of rats over the years that had escaped to be re-caught again. If you're getting fresh cattail cuttings in your traps you're in the right spot. If you have some 160's try those. I've had better luck with baited conibears when I jump up in size. Don't get as many fired empty traps.
