    Its pretty hard to keep guts on hook when tossing any distance. What is the setup you have found works best. (For Shad Gizzards and Liver)

    take it all and stuff it inside the stomach and cut small slits in the stomach. Hook the opening of the stomach and you will not loose your bait. I use bream stomach.

    I have used nylon stockings with some success, just cut them up in small sections and tie off the ends.

    Skipjack gizzards are pretty tough, and will stay on for a little while as long as you're not repeatedly casting.

    pack them in some cheese cloth. works pretty well for me. i like it better than panty hose.

    Go to good old walmart or a craft store and get some elastic sewin thread. Wrap it around the bait a couple times and let it rip. Works like a champ. Been usein it for years with nothin but success.

    i hook through the middle of the shad gizzard, it's like a bead. i wrap the guts around the hook shank and hook them best i can. last spring i caught a 22 pound blue and a 17 pound channel off the same gizzard, and the guts were all gone.

    I use the wal mart thread but most of the time we buy the dollar general sponge looking scrubbers that u use to take a shower with and just tear off a 3x3 piece, put the liver in it, hook it on and cast away as far as u like!!!!

    CHEESE CLOTH OR PANTYHOSE WILL DO THE TRICK.PANTY HOSE A LITTLE HARDER TO GET OFF THE HOOK.
