    Chicken livers or shad. Cut bluegill also works.

      Chicken livers are good, but it is hard to keep them on the hook. Either dry them in the sun first or tie them on the hook with a string.

        I am not familiar with Texas catfishing being im from Ohio but baits that work for me that should work regardless of geographic location include live creek chubs or suckers, shrimp, and cut bait. Thats what works best for me. Im not here to put down anyone's bait preference but in my honest opinion chicken liver is a very over rated catfish bait. The baits I mentioned work just as well if not better and are much easier to manage on your hook.

          Live perch/sunfish, live crawfish, or yellow grasshoppers. Beef or pork liver will hold on a hook a lot better than chicken liver.

            I’d picked up on it from other discussions earlier this year. Maybe because hunting season is coming up is why this suddenly popped back up.

            DNA tests confirm that a wolf was killed by a coyote hunter in New York State. No indication that there's any real population -- speculation is that...
