you had me" hook, line and sinker" thats hilarious. good advice though.Barry, welcome to the BOC/SOC :cool2:, best catfishing site on the web! Be sure to check out the library, a lot of good info in there.
To toughen up those livers cure them in the sun.
Go to the grocery store and buy 4 to 6 tubs of fresh chicken liver(depending on how many cats you are planning on feeding.) Buy at least two bottles of garlic powder and 2 boxes of salt. On a hot sunny day start early and place the chicken livers on aluminum foil in direct sun light. Coat the livers heavily with the garlic powder and salt and leave them to bake in the sun for about 4 hours. The tops will start to dry and the edges will start to turn a different shade of brown. Now flip them over and coat the other side heavily with garlic powder and salt and as stated you can't put to much salt. Let them bake in the sun another 4 hours and they will be ready. Place them in gallon freezer bags until you are ready to use them.
When you are ready to go fishing take as many of them out of the bag as you think your cat will eat and throw them out. Now grab your shad net and go catch some fresh shad and go fishing:wink::smile2:. Sorry guy's I couldn't resist, they really do work pretty good for channel cats.
