Bob Noonan has trapped marten in Maine and Alaska, and has interviewed American and Canadian professional longline marten trappers from across the continent. This video is packed with detailed information from many sources, and many combined years of successful experience. A marten trapline calls for a large number of fast, easy to make sets, that will stay operational during freezing rain, heavy winds, and snowstorms. This video shows how to do it. It contains in-depth demonstrations of modern equipment, including a fast, re-useable anchoring system, and a number of different sets. It also introduces a set variation using extremely light, portable, inexpensive equipment. Professional Maine marten and fisher trapper Jerry Braley shows his version of an effective marten set, as well as his innovative variation of a #220 pole set designed to take both marten and fisher. You’ll spend time on a November marten line in Maine’s Great North Woods. You’ll see locations, numerous marten catches, incidental white weasels and fisher, and some real wilderness scenery and weather as winter slams into the northern Maine boreal forest.
