I have never caught a fisher myself, but have been amazed at many guys are using Cat Collector lure for fisher and martin for that matter. This has funky musky smell that takes over the area. It does smear and stick to about anything. Some of the trappers I have talked that are catching a lot of fisher with it, some are using a bait with Cat Collector and some or not. I have had sever guys tell me that they figured out that fisher liked Cat Collector because of the fisher being caught in bobcat and coyote sets. So they gave it a try. I will admit that I did not make Cat Collector for fisher or martin. For the vigor that these trappers have told me about their success with Cat Collector, plus the PM’s and e-mails saying the same thing, I would definitely give it a try. I know I would.
Some of the trappers use it straight. Some of the trappers are adding a few drops of skunk to the 4 oz jar.. Cat Collector does hold skunk well. Rain will not wash it off or out and I know that It smells the same after 30 days on the trap line. If you use Cat Collector on your trap line this season, let me know what happens.
Thanks and good luck on your fisher lines,
