    Though some of you might want to try this. Talked to a friend of mine that I work with that runs nets and trotlines that does really, really well. He said he always baits with chicken gizzards soaked overnight in anise oil and red food coloring. He even caught a 54lb flathead with it. They usually go for live bait. Shouldn't have a problem keeping it on the hook either.

    Thats an idea. I've never had any luck with them plain or soaked with garlic powder. May try that. I have some anise oil.

    Livers and gizzards are people food. I don't mind sharing my bar "s" hot dogs, but enough is enough.

    Well I tried them out on some trotlines over the weekend. I set 3 out baited with the gizzards and some hot link hotdogs that had went bad. Netted and netted for shad but could not find any. Only thing I caught was 2 blues. One maybe 5 lbs and the other I could have put in my fish tank. Almost all of the baits were still on also.
