Re: NFC: Minnow Traps and Rain

Good advice.  This happened to me once last year.  Left a trap at a remote
site overnight and heavy rains came in.  The next day the trap was
completely covered with mud and not even visible.  I was hard pressed to
get it out of the muck and I saw no evidence of anything having been in
it, although it's posible that eveything was "chewed up" by the heavy
silt flow.
