    Chicken entrails have been a long time good catfish bait. It's gone the ways of every home having a chickenhouse and killing an old hen every Sunday fer fried chicken.

    If you have access to chicken guts, use 'em!

    if you take the crap out of the intestines, it works like a nightcrawler with LOTS more scent and sticks to your hook longer

    Real good bait. Right up there with coagulated blood. Bait a trotline with those two baits and your gonna be cleaning fish for quite a while. Guaranteed.

    Why not leave it in them, it would be free chum. Leave the added scent of the Crap to attract those hard to please fish, LOL!!

    I've heard that chicken guts make excellent catfish bait, but I just haven't been able to get my hands on some to give them a try. I've had some good results using chitlings (hog guts), though.
