"Mustela noctu mures captat." this means the weasel catches the mouse. There is no word in the sentence indicating "tries"

Capto, captare means "to try/strive to catch, grasp, etc."

Capio, capere means "to capture, seize, catch"

If the weasel catches the mouse it would be "Mustela noctu mures capit."
