    will beef liver work for catching catfish?

  • #2
    I would think so. I've been using chicken giblits and liver can't be that different although maybe harder to keep on a hook.

      Yes, pork liver is cheaper if you can find it, both work!

        Is a pig's butt pork?
        It is 'til he sits down! Then it's pressed ham!
        YES, YES, YES!
        Liver is superb catfish bait! Just don't figure on catching any flatheads. They require "live" bait.

          yup, make it stinky with some garlic and let it get gross then get on it.

            The sinew or reticular fibers that connect liver will stay on the hook quite well and is a waste product that is usually trimed off the liver. So just go to a butcher shop and ask for the beef liver sinew.

                I think beef liver is the best liver to use, it stays on the hook alot easier than chicken liver too. That is all we use on trot lines.

                  I recomend chicken liver but im sure beef liver works the same. Put it in a resulable jar and put a little salt on top of the liver then put it in the fridge overnight, it should be a little tougher. Hope this helps.

                      I was told that if you stick the beef livers in boiling water it helps it stay on the hook a lot better
