When using baits that are very soft like liver you can use pantyhose and tie them into small bags of pantyhose. Then you can just hook the bag to your hooks. It is a little extra work but it works if that is what you really want to use.

On a side note, I have even heard of some guys using WD-40 and saturating their bait in it to catch catfish. It supposedly contains fish oil which the fish are attracted to. I have never tried that.



You can use medical gauze as well, they make it in tubes, so you can tie one end, put your bait in, and then tie it shut.

Don't use WD-40, its terrible for the environment.

a grocery store near me sells pork and beef liver, both of which are a good deal tougher than chicken. I've not tried using them yet, though.

Tried using chicken liver for bullheads with my son - dear God those things stink like raw sewage. Didn't get so much as a nibble. Must be doing something wrong.
