    Does anyone put their bait in nylon stockings? If you do, do they work well? And what baits do you use in it and how do you hook it?

    I've seen some pretty goodlookin bait in nylons:cool2:

    OH catfish bait, one way is cut nylon in strips, hook thru one end, hook liver as much as possible, then wrap nylon around bait and hook thru end.
    another way is cut nylon into squares, place liver in center, gather top together, hook thru top and back thru bait.

    would it work if you got a whole nylon and put the bait in then just tie a big knot then hook it through the knot?

    My recommendation is to go to wally world or a fabric store and look for some cheap lacey fabric. I picked up a quarter yard of white fabric with holes in it big enough to let some of the liver our, but still solid enough to hold the bulk of it in, for $0.25. And it's made of cotton, so it'll decompose easliy.

    Here are some helpful hints.DO NOT use nylons that have been worn.The scent of the original owner will still be in them and cause problems.Try not to use nylons that still have the original owner in them.Very hard to cast with normal tackle and the whole thing makes a hellacious screech when flying through the air.NEVER put any nylons under your front seat,in the glove compartment or in your tackle box if you are married.I don't care what the salesclerk at WalMart tells your wife she isn't going to believe it.Might be safer for YOU to cure your liver as opposed to having it cut out by an irate female.:lol: :tounge_out: :smile2:

    I usually freeze my liver in ice trays and wrap them in hose and put pack in freezer until im ready to go fishing .....

    But if curing will produce the same thing with alot less work i might have too read some posts and learn this technigue......

    I usually use chicken livers and put them on a trebile hook. But the trick is go to Wal-Mart and pick up some sewing thread and rap it a couple of times around your livers. Works great for me.

    Jerell, I have done this and it works quiet well,especially if you are using really rotten liver.Start with fresh liver and one leg of pantie hose. Drop half or whole liver down to the toe and tie a knot, move up just a little bit and tie another knot, now insert another piece of liver, tie knot then another knot and so on. Cut between knots with scissors and you will have ready made pouches, that will stay on your hook. Just hook through a pinch of hose so your hook is well exposed, the nylon is tough and you can cast really far. I know you will like it. You can get quite a few out of one leg if you pull every thing tight. Good luck,

    I've Never Had Any Luck W/nylons, Seems Like The Fish Don't Like It To Me. They Always See To Spit It Out. Try Small Rubber Bands.

    I've tried it all,and I noticed I didn't catch as many fish with any of them except thread.Only costs 50cents and lot less trouble.Use sissors to cut your liver it doesn't rip up the membrain and helps it stay on better.Use the same sissors to cut the thread off when done fishing.For me curing/frezing doesn't work as well as fresh thawed liver from the store.refrozen once thawed is really runny-cured didn't catch as many fish.I use a kahle hook,and have had much more bites over the treble,and as good of hook-ups.I catch more fish on liver than any cut bait.
