    anyone have any luck with cured gizards? they arent worth a damn by themselves, was tossing around the idea of adding garlic, fish oil, or even wd-40 lol. its too bad they dont work good by themselves, very hard to rob off a hook.

    Please don't put oil in the water.

    If you need a bait that won't come off the hook, try salt pork; bacon stays on surprisingly well, too. If you want something that won't come off the hook that you can add scent to, try chitlings. I've had success adding garlic, anise, and shrimp flavoring to chitlings.

    chicken gizzards work good on trotlines... its a slow bite like soap... they need to get real stinky on there first... :)

    I have used chicken gizzards with great success, caught many fish in the 10-30 pound range. I fish mainly for blue cats. I use jugs, and the only problem I have with them is getting them off the hook. I like in Oklahoma, but I would think they should work just as well for you. Try them on a Jug.:cool2:
