I usually leave my traps out arout 7:00PM and pick them up around the
same time next day.  I've found I usually catch different fish at night
than during the day, so a 24 hour period allows me to catch both.  On
weekends if I leave a trap at 7:00PM I'll come check it at midnight,
take with me any fish I want, release MOST of the rest (I leave a couple
in there but I don't know if that helps to lure other fish in), and
possibly refresh the bait if necessary.
