I know some of you boys don't like us trotliners, but I is what I is and here's my post. Last time at Santee(Lake Marion) , I ran across some boys from Greenwood using some stuff that they called "red oil". I found it at Wal Mart as Baitmate Classic Fish Attractant for Catfish. Those old boys swore by it and marinated deer meat chunks for trotline bait. My secret bait up until this point was my top secret garlic chicken livers. I make garlic chicken livers by climbing up on my hot roof and putting chick livers up there (on the back side of the roof that's not facing the road so I don't get kicked out of the neighborhood) Then I cover them with salt and garlic salt and let them dry out for a few days. This makes them pretty tough so they will stay on the hook when casting and also on the infamous trotlines. I am headed to Lake Marion next week (Good Friday), but with a new recipe. I made the garlic chicken livers and sprayed the "red oil" on them. Any of y'all ever use this stuff? How's the fishing at Lake Marion right now? Jimbo :cool2: PS: You know you're a redneck if you put chicken livers on your roof for catfish bait.
