Are you asking what to bait them with? Where to put them?
For bait, fish and chicken necks work well.
And for where to put them, usually in kinda shallow water. Tie a rope to the trap and tie the rope to one of the poles of a pier or dock. Or you can buy a bouy and set the trap in deeper water.
Hope this helped! If it didn't try checking out the sites that were posted above =]
