First off, I wanted to say hello to everyone as I am new to the boards. I've been fishing for a long time and love to go after big'ol cats. The info on this board has been a gold mine. I also wanted to say thanks to those folks who suggested using garlic salt to "stink up" the liver before using it. I bought some beef liver yesterday at the grocery store and prepped it last night. I cut it into strips and salted it down with garlic salt. Today, the catfish were going crazy over it. Didn't catch any really big ones, but they kept me busy all morning. :smile2: Thanks again, folks.
