What eactly is your question? If you are looking for a good coon set- a pocket or dirthole lured with a good coon lure is the ticket. What is a good coon lure? I find that strong "sweet" lures are what turn a coons head most often. All the baits you mentioned work, but IMHO lures work better.

wvhideguy,
On the subject of lures: For coons I carry only 2. My primary is Ace's Muskrat Super all call. I have found it's better than his coon lure in my area. The 2nd is my own and it does have anis so you will get that licerice (spelling) smell somewhat. When I place a coon lure I try to smear some a few feet above the ground then at the actual set whether it be on the roof of lets say a pocket set or if no bait is used , at the rear. Oh, and I don't use coon glands as I feel it's of no real actraction in that formulation. Shoot me an email with your address and I'll send a freebe for ya.

On another not Mallard is gonna help me re-design my website going into great detail about trapping all water furbearers. When I say detail I mean exact pocket location, constuction, Why I pick these location etc...
I also had on the site Ace's 5 page Fox and Yote instructions.
It's a great read and all sets are fully illustrated. Mallard used to send people there quite often. Problem is I got too many hits so they'd shut me down for a few days so I suggest you print it out.
Best of all it's free!!!
