    I have used beef liver and caught some nice channels but chicken liver seems to catch more channels. Have caught 100's of bullhead on beef liver. Like the way it stays on the hook. Anyone else using it with success??

    From what I've found from personal use is that chicken liver out fishes beef and turkey liver. I was told that both of them have an enzyme that catfish don't like but will eat if that's all that's there. I've dumped a lot of beef and turkey in the lake at the end of the night after I ran out of chicken liver and the bite quit right when I ran out of chicken liver for some reason.

    The beef doesn't get as many bites has the chicken, but the beef stays on alot better, and i get more beef liver for less money.

    I've tried it but so far have not had one bite. of course this year I haven't had many bites on anything at all. So I can't really judge it at this point.Does stay on good though.

    Use to in the past I have had great success with Beef and Turkey livers so much so that at one time you'd never catch me with out it.But this year it hasn't mattered what I have used I can't get the fish to bite. And I love to fish so much that it's upsetting me!!!:crazy: :sad2:

    Early in the year, in March I did prety good on beef liver on channel cat. In the 1960's my dad jug fished the Mississppi and they always used beef liver, but with a twist. He would have my mom get red fabric dye and dye the liver red before using it. They would catch a lot of blues up to 30#. Has anyone else ever heard of this. I have never tried this, but I know it used to work.

    I've not had any luck with beef or pork liver, but several people on this thread seem to think it's pretty good stuff. May have to try it again.

    Have a nice day.
