Anyone know how chicken hearts compare to livers or other common baits? I found a giant pack of hearts for cheap at the grocery store, but no upcoming trips just yet. I was thinking hearts might stay on the hook better than livers.

We’ve been using deer hearts for years. I cut them up in quarter size pieces or a bit smaller and put garlic salt in the zip lock with them and freeze. Works pretty good!

Try breast. Cut it up in little chunks. Ive just about quit using livers and only use breast any more. Much cleaner and stays on better

Yeah why i like saving deer liver, way tougher than crummy old chicken liver


Do not regret growing older, it's a privilege denied to many!

Bone in and skin on chicken breast is where it’s at. Small chunk meat wrapped in skin stays on the hook. I fillet my of bone and put in ziplock with garlic salt. It’s mainly a blue cat bait but about the best. If I was going to try hearts definitely would put in garlic salt due to lack of blood.IMO

Bait shop here used to sell a box of just hearts. Must be something to it.

Wife's uncle made deals with local processors. They save deer hearts for him to use as bait. From the pictures I've seen, they work really well.

You’ve been wasting some good eating for a bottom scavenger.

I usually fix it at home so most times a couple hours . I have fixed a big batch and put some in freezer.

Occasionally I get a request to go catch eating sized catfish. Cut chicken breast is my preferred bait for the 5lb or less fish. Some mix a packet of strawberry jello in the bag, others use pool salt. I just use cut chunks with no additional seasoning.

I have been using cut Winnie's with strawberry jello and garlic powder. It works pretty good when jugging for blues.

When I used to do quite a bit catfishing I would use shrimp from a local fruit stand that sold some seafood. They would sell me shrimp that were a day or two older than what they wanted to sell and they'd let me have it for little to nothing. My favorite were rock shrimp when they had them because they would really stay on the hook especially when i would go jug fishing.
