Chunks of fish for bucket sets can add some fish oil for extra scent. ***** can be attracted with sweet baits like marshmellows but probably won't be as effective in cold weather. If you didn't save any fish parts then buy some canned cat food and set it in the back.
HuntinND gave good advice. I sometimes have trouble with mice eating my bait in the bucket. If this is happening I will get some frozen smelt and hang them with some wire at the back of the bucket. The mice cant get to it and the ***** cant either with out going through the trap first.
