    I was curing some livers yesterday and I was using garlic salt and Lawry's Seasoned Salt.
    I decided to try them tonight and see which they liked best.
    Well, the Lawry's Seasoned Salt won.
    We were catching a bunch of small ones, but they hit the ones with the Lawry's a lot quicker then the ones with the garlic salt.
    They would hit them even before I had a chance to set down the pole. The garlic salt livers would take a few minutes before getting a hit.

    Has anyone else tried Lawry's Seasoned Salt, and did you do any good?

    All the cats were real small tonight, but they were biting like crazy.

    ok, I guess I am takin a stand tonight...or today I guess. You all are wastin good seasoning on this liver! I guarantee that the cats in your water will hit fresh bloody liver better or at least as good as your flavored variety.

    Doug, I couldn't have agreed with you more until seeing so many experiences posted on these forums about the value of cured liver.

    I always fish fresh livers, but I do follow these posts on cured livers with interest. I've had to admit that cured liver is a whole lot easy to handle and stays on the hook without a lot of extra netting, tying, or whatever.

    Ken, I guess you'll have to add fresh livers in your next scientific study (kinda looks scientific to me!). :big_smile:

    I have used both cured and plain and even some with ground cloves and found that they all have their times when they out fish the others.

    I thought about trying fresh liver last night, but I was having too much fun and didn't want to take the time to try them?:big_smile:

    Next time I go out, I think I'm going to try all three and see what happens?

    i try Lawry's on chicken, pork beef even catfish. That's some good stuff. I've always cured my livers with garlic salt. But I think I will try the lawry's tomorrow.

    I've got some Lawry's around the house so I'll give it a try.

    I don't even think about going fishing unless I have at least 6 different baits.
