I usually use a long forked stick about an inch in diameter cut during the Summer. The fork makes it easy to push into the mud with either a canoe paddle or my broken hoe I use for a trap retriever.

I do just like Itrapny does except I tie a streamer of flagging from the top of the stake so I don't miss any sets. In a marsh everything tends to look the same and many times landmarks are few and far between.

I just use suveyers ribbon and attach it to the cattails near the set. That way I can keep my stake length down below 2 feet and they fit it the packbasket better, not to mention it will hold a coon better if he can't get to the stake.

On 110's I use a piece of lath most of the time, but they do blend into the background, you can paint the end with some red flourescent spray paint, or use the surveyors ribbon.

When I set up in a marsh I'm only looking for rats. 3 days max in one spot and move on. Slide wires are too bulky and a downright pain in th butt when you're rat trapping.

Chub-
I had an article on rats in the T&PC last year on open water lake rats--the staking methods would be the same for all sets on the edge...
but i dont remember what issue it was either...
