    About 95 percent of all the catfish that I have caught had a Bluegill head as bait.

    Get you chicken liver and garlic salt (big jar). Dump the garlic salt in the chicken liver and let marinate. Those catfish love stuff like that. Good and smelly. Good luck!!​

    Garlic Cured Chicken Livers are the best Channel bait known to man. (At least I think so anyway, LMAO)

    do you folks add unsweetened kool aid to yours? I seem to keep seeing that in recipes for garlic livers.

    The best cut-bait is ,the bait that you catch out of whatever body of water that you are fishing in. Shad, bream ,crappie,shinners,mullet,herron,warmouth,white perch,whitebass, etc. #1 rule........never buy bait--catch it.............steve

    Just make sure you know your states regulations concerning bait. Some of what he named we can't use in Missouri, but I know can still be used in Oklahoma.
