Until joining the BOC I'd never talked with anyone who took catfishing seriously. Everyone I know either fishes withlivers straight out of the tub or worms in the river. The BOC has opened my eyes to a whole new world of info and methods on catfishing. That said, I went to the store today and bought livers, salt, and garlic powder. Tommorrow I plan on curing my first batch of livers following Teaysvalleyguy's very helpful step by step instructions. Ya'll wish me luck and thank you to all of you experienced guys for sharing your knowelage with all of us newbies.
