I came up with an idea for using chicken livers, without the risk of them being so easily lost. Put them inside a peice of panty hose, then hook the bait. Now someone else may have already tried this, if so let me know how it works....seems like it would be great. They could get the taste but not just suck it off the hook, or when casting to insure the bait remaind in tact. Whatcha tink?
