    burned hot dogs work really well,chicken livers are probably best. hook them both the same way, push the stem of a treble hook through it and attach to your snap swivel.let the liver just rest on the treble,don't try to push the hooks through.

    I cant wait to use chicken livers. I used to use minnows but I caught my other favorite as well, crappie. Then I met a guy who used only perch and he did great. So now I catch little perch with my fly rod early and catfish into the night with them on jugs and yo-yos.

    I use chicken hearts. I find these stay on the hook better then liver.

    Stinky cheese and livers that have been in a cooler with no ice for 4 days.

    I use shad on a regular basis or shrimp, but also it depends on what they are eating in your local body of water, experiment with a few baits and also try to match some of the baits in your area.

    I also have great success with crawfish and freshwater mussels if they are available in the area.

    look for the first place that the ice is clearing from the lake and start there. look for the bait fish die off and use it. turkey liver is good soaked in chicken blood.

    pumakitchen has it right, water temperature has alot to do with it early. The cats will be where it's warmest. But as far as bait, smelly stuff is the best ANY time of year.

    I always used stink bait, but that was awhile back. I had a tube of this paste that I put on the sinker, added with a nightcrawler worked amazing.

    Crawfish and perch work really well; as do chicken liver and shad. Some people swear by stink bait and I have caught cats with it, but I would prefer not to deal with it.
