Just gotta be careful gators love the smell of rotten meat but yall aint got that problem up there lol. I found if u put the liver in a piece of panty hose and run a weedless hook through it they can't steal it as bad.
Luckily no gators!!! I dont think I'd like fishing quite so much if I constantly had to worry about that! My brother also recommended chicken livers for catfishing...problem is I have no clue where to buy them? Is that sold just for bait or are they something I could buy in a regular grocery store?

Biggest fish I ever caught though was a blue catfish that was randomly in the river! lol I have also caught carp, blue gill, sheepshead, sucker minnows (ick), sure I'm leaving something out.... Use an ultralight spinning rod and the catch is more fun. I usually use live minnows for bait. You can also pick up raw chicken livers or raw smelt from the grocery store to fish for catfish.

IME, fish seem to bite most in the morning, evening, and most especially right before it starts raining. Most bass and panfish are more likely to go for lively bait. The best luck is when I wade the river and find "fishy" looking areas to cast into (ie near a fallen tree in the water, near a brushy pile...places that are deepish and have hiding spots for them to lurk in).

For artificial spinners...crappie like the color green. Don't ask...they just do.

I realllly want to go someplace and catch a pike of some kind. I want to catch something big and toothy, lol.
I normally just go sunday mornings early. I think my early, 7 am, might not be early enough? We bought some spinners and they came in a few colors(silver green black) is there some way to know which one will work the best? I can only hope to catch a monster too lol I am so jealous of Jeremy wade(river monsters) & his trips to the end of the earth and back for mammoth fish. He caught a tiger gar one episode. That thing has gator teeth,it was unreal!

You should be able to get chicken livers in your grocery store. They are usually sold in little plastic tubs in the meat area with the chicken. If you can't find them in a regular grocery store try a butcher shop if you are lucky enough to still have one in your area. Sad that a real butcher shop is getting to be a thing of the past.

Blech... I love the way they smell while cooking but I cant get past the taste. I've tried a few times since I am anemic and they have lots of iron, but I can't do it. I get them for my cats as treats, though.
