Bought some liver from walmart last year, aprox 3 lb. of it---it's been in the freezer for aprox. 9 months, will this still be good for catting or should I buy new liver to fish with. I figure I'll be buying a few more lbs. of the stuff anyway but I was just wondering about the frozen ones wether they would be any good.

As long as it has been frozen i'm sure it will be OK. Throw a mess of garlic salt on it and lay it out in the sun for 3 or 4 hours and it will be even better!

I have 1 container that I put garlic salt on and let set out on the rocks on a old cookie sheet while I was fishing last year. It also has been in the freezer since last summer. Is there a better brand of liver to buy from walmart or does it make much difference.

"..kind of hard to keep on a hook.."
Ya know, I have always heard this but never had that problem...
I always freeze mine and peel it out as it thaws.
Of course you can't power-sling it out like it is a spinnerbait you are shooting to the moon.. but a right-good lob will get it there..
As to the old liver.. if it is not freezer burned it should be fine.

You can always "nuke" it in the microwave for 20 sec. or so to rubber it up a bit...

Myself I Always Use Sewing Thread To Keep Liver On Hook. I Have A Spool In My Tackle Box At All Time.just Pull Out About A Foot And Wrap It Around The Liver Fairly Tight.you Don't Have To Tie It On .liver Stays On Good And Harder For Kitty Cat To Get Off Hook. Good Luck No Mater What You Try Or Do.

I think I'll try using the old frozen stuff plus take another 3-5 more containers that are fresh, more can't hurt I figure anyway, since there will be around 10 of us fishing.

If you cure the liver you wont have to worry about using hose or thread.And you can still toss it out there a mile.

I freeze mine all the time for long periods of time but I also put a whole shaker of garlic salt in it at the same time and when it thaws out enough to bait my hook with it, I use a small cut of it and it's pretty tough as it is.
Works great for me.
