    uh
    i was out fishing last night and this guy was out and and we were talking catfishing and he said that he used to know this guy who would get a bait sack and put chiken liver and an alka seltzer tab in it to spread the scent of the bait. it sounds like it would work good but i dont want to do anything illegal to hurt the fish or get in trouble whatya brothers think?

    Not sure of laws on Alka Seltzer in the water, would be hard keeping a strait face asking the DNR about it also. hehehe

    I don't think that it would be a problem, as long as the alka-seltzer was in the bag, all it does is release bubbles into the water and with the chicken liver it should help to disperse the scent in the water

    I hate to bring up B@$$ fishing but I know a guy that takes tube baits and a little piece of alka and puts it inside to irritate the bass. Works pretty well from what I have heard. I have never read anything about it being a problem. Pretty good idea I think.
