    Try using rooster liver or turkey liver. it is a little tougher than chicken liver. When you cast liver do not sling it as hard kinda loft it out there. Try to keep it cool on ice and use the freshest you can find. The above post are also good ways, I never heard about salt water though.

    Not sure about the salt water but I do know that if you put the livers on a rack and spread garlic salt on them and let them dry in the sun they will turn leather like and work like a charm. I picked that tip up on here and will never go back!!

    Asolutely agree! I just wanted to add that I got one of those little insulated lunch bags to keep my tub of livers in, it works great for keeping them cold. Never freeze your livers, and use treble hooks.

    i use beef or chicken livers the best way i would recomend you to keep them on the hook is to put a big piece on the hook and get about a 1 ft piece of sewing thread wand just wrap the thread around it numerous times works good for me
