    Default Chicken for bait?

    Has anyone heard of or ever tried using chicken as bait? What I am thinking is take some raw chicken and cutting it up and letting it sit out and get nice and nasty then given it a shot. Guess it would be kind of gross but would it work?

    Spoiled shrimp, chicken and fish are about as nasty of smells as there are. If you can stand it, more power to you. Why not try a whole chicken and catch a gar?

    chicken livers are alot cheaper and just as goodif not better livers are bloodier i think they would give off a better scent trail than the breasts

    Raw chicken liver is one of the standard baits for us. We caught 13 this past weekend on chicken livers. Blues and channels. The lake we were fishing does not have a big shad population or we would have used shad, but liver is good bait.

    yea raw chicken works great it stays on the hook way better then liver especally if you get some skin on there its hard to get off. Ill tear um up at the lake havent tried it at the river.

    I Have Used Chicken Before With Strawberry Jello, It's Fine For The Regular Channel Cats,but As Far As Larger Cats It Seems They Prefer The Live Baits
