I need to know what otters eat to go in your traps. Also how do I know what size trap to buy for otters in Spartanburg county of South Carolina. I believe the otters have eaten many fish from the lake. I hope there is a trapping or hunting season on them. These otters are black.
If you review our OTTER CONTROL ARTICLE, you’ll learn there are several trap options that can be used. The most common we sell is the first or second one listed on our OTTER TRAPS page. Also in our article you’ll see we have both OTTER LURE and SALMON PASTE. Since they love fish, either bait will do a good job of luring them inside.
We also recommend checking with the state department of natural resources to see when any animal is in season so you can do your trapping during the proper time of year.
