Ok, theres a small pond where i fish at a lot and ive never caught a decent fish tightlining. My best 2 fish where with a big chunk of chicken liver and just a hook tied to the end of the line. The fish, if im tight lining, will nibble and nibble and nibble but wont take the damn bait. I was wondering, as this year im going for the biggest fish i can get, if using a loose lined live gill with the tail and fins cut off jsut enough so he cant swim will work. And i gotta admit the loose line is fun, sitting there realing in a bluegill on the other pole and you look over and holy shit fish on!!!!! without a doubt the most fun ive had fishing. Ive had great sucksess with chicken livers this way, jsut wondering if anyone else has tried/thought of trying this.
