  1. r they tough enough to stay on a hook without any mesh

    If you buy fresh ones they are, frozen livers tend to get mushy when thawed.
     

  3. Be careful - some stores sell 'em "previously frozen" but don't tell you so. ask the meat counter guy. As Flathunter says, fresh are best.

    I cure my livers with garlic and salt. It toughens them up and they won't cast off the hook. They catch fish like crazy.

    What about Chicken gizzards? I knwo they stya on the hook real well, but when I used them a few years abck I dont think they worked too well. Also, its been a while, but if I recall correctly beef liver stays on alot better.

    Gizzards suck, I never had any luck on beef liver either.

    Fine screw both of you guys :p
     
  9. Beef Livers work just as good if not better than Chicken if you can find them NOT prefrozen...they stay on the hook better too...But the pre-froze crap is about as good as nothing at all...
