Just wondering what hook style and size you would use for Channels and Chicken liver bait. I've been using a 2/0 or 3/0 shorter shank SSW Owner. I wrap my liver in cheesecloth and twist into a tight ball, tie it off, then cut excess away. It leaves me with neet balls of bait and they stay put with the hardest of casts. It also lets me get baits ready ahead of time then I just need to open the container, grab one and put it on the hook. Cuts way down on any messing around with baiting up. The cheesecloth is around $3.00 at the grocery store and makes a LOT of baits.
