    Anyone use Gizzards for bait. Seem like they would be a good tough bait.

    I've tried them when the store was out of livers. Never really had much luck on them though and I can't figure out why.

    Me? I hate livers, but I love gizzards and hearts.

    I was camping this spring at Truman and a loe man was running lines, he was camped next to us and got to talking to him and that is all he used is gizzards???? I sais you mean livers don't you and NO---GIZZARDS---he stated htat in the week to follow he will catch his years supply of blues on gizzards and be done with fishing.
    We tried that later in the year with my sons and didn't catch a fish:dont-know:
