Original post made by Jerry Trew(Jtrew) on November 16, 2003 Chitlings. Cut into bait-sized pieces, drop into ziploc bag, and add your favorite flavoring, such as garlic powder, or the contents of several flavor packets from shrimp flavored Ramen noodles. Actually, you can use whatever brand is cheapest. Cataholic and I tried both of those, and the garlic flavored chitlings seemed to do just a little better than the shrimp flavored ones. And they will stay on the hook till you take them off! It's cheap, it catches fish, and it stays on the hook forever. I haven't had a chance to try it head to head against fresh shad or fresh skipjack, but it outproduced frozen skipjack; and cured chicken livers came in last.
