Yes. Place 3-4 good tunnels along the beck. Don't worry to much about bait, concentrate on making good tunnels in the right place. Leave em there more or less permanent, so fasten em down well. Maybe drag a dead rabbit or water hen through em if you ever have one. Through a few bloody feathers or a bit of fur in the entrance if you feel there one about. 

That's just what I'd do. Never actually caught that many

Just tunnels,with Body grips 116 or Fenn Mk6 no bait best, use bait and your likely to attract other unwanted species, Mink cannot resist exploring a tunnel.

Thanks mate 👍

How long do you make the tunnel am thinking foot tall 3 foot long a foot wide or that to big ?? Pal

Read the other thread about rabbits an fens mate an use the same advice micky gave the lad, I would personally make it as deep as it took so the minks body wasn’t hanging out end of tunnel, but again it’s down to you but make the tunnel to fit the trap you use to stop foul catches 👍
