CATFISH CHICKEN LIVERS FISHING BAIT CURE
Catfish Fishing with Chicken Livers
Catfish will bite on a lot of things, the key is knowing
where to find them, and casting right on top of them.
Chicken livers is the go to bait for most catfish
fishermen for one reason. Chicken Livers work for
catfish like no other. We also have a dough bait recipe
that you can use chicken livers in as well. But using raw
chicken livers, some like them fresh, some like them stinky rotten. The best way to fish for catfish with
chicken livers is to use a circle hook, and no weights. Find an area that has trees or bushes in the water
and cast the chicken liver as close as you can to them. If you don’t get a bit in five to ten minutes, cast
again a little further to the right or left and try again. If you don’t get a bite in another ten minutes, try a
different bush or tree. Sometimes they venture out from the tree or bush, so you can also cast a little
further from the bush or tree.
The Need for Salting Your Catfish Chicken Livers
The biggest problem with using chicken livers is that they are not very
solid, they fall apart and off your hook, typically on the cast or as your
bait sinks towards the bottom of the lake, and you may not even know
that it has fallen off so you are not really fishing at that point. A cure for
this problem is to cure your chicken livers with salt.
Catfish Chicken Liver Baits Recipe Cure Ingredients
Lots of Salt Chicken Livers Red Food Coloring (if needed to brighten up the blood color) Additional Scent
(if needed, 1 of these) Sometimes I like to add some garlic (salt, minced, diced, or oil) Catfish Fish
Attractant Anise Oil Do not put any oil based products, scent, or fish attractant in the cure until after it’s
cured because oil can hamper the curing process. I usually put mine in until just before I leave the house
to head out to my fishing spot.
Catfish Chicken Liver Baits Recipe Instructions
Open up your chicken livers and pour out the juice Put a few chicken livers in the bottom of the tub, or in
a ziplock bag, or in a small Tupperware. Coat the chicken livers in salt Place another layer of chicken
layers and coat with salt Continue doing this until you cover all of the chicken livers in salt Let sit at least
overnight, if possible, before use I let mine sit in the refrigerator because I like them as fresh as possible,
but some people swear by a rotten chicken liver for the extra scent
Putting Catfish Chicken Liver Bait on the Hook
You can use a treble hook, or a regular hook, but the hook that I found that works the best is a circle
hook as it holds the baits on better
Keeping the Catfish Chicken Livers Bait Usable
It’s important to keep the chicken livers from rotting even worse (unless you like to use it that way) so
that the catfish will not spit it out when they try to eat it. To do so, always keep the chicken livers out of
direct sun light for long periods of time, and keep them in a ziplock bag or tupperware type container
with an air tight seal. You can also store them in their original container too. This will also keep more of
the stinky scent in the bag or container instead of in the air where you have to constantly smell it.
Using Catfish Chicken Liver Baits Safely
If you added fish, meat, etc.. that can cause food poisoning, don’t forget to bring some unscented wipes
to be able to wash it off your hands after your bait your hook. Wipe down any surface or container that
you touched with the chicken livers, for food safety.

Catfish Dough Bait Fishing Hooks
Catfish dough bait hooks are great for holding the dough type baits
onto your hook, and the spring in the center also adds weight to the
hook which helps to keeps the baits on the bottom. Also works
great for trout dough bait, when you are fishing with a bobber, it
will force the trout bait to sink below the surface where the fish are
