We went out to chatfield ponds last night after an exciting night last weekend. we didnt really get crap. maybe 6 bites. My dad fished lastnight at a different lake and didnt do crap either.. Anyone do any good last night.
Liver sacks?? What were you doing? For fishing fresh chicken liver - I HAVE A TRICK!!
Use a size 8 or so treble hook, Take a piece of fresh liver and wrap it around the hook, push down so it hangs up on the hooks..... Now comes the cool part!!! Take an old golf ball and cut the outer skin off of it. You will see wound rubber band material under the skin. unwind a bunch of this stuff and keep it in a baggie. Take a small piece of this off and and wrap it around the liver to keep it on the hook. When you wind it on, you have to hold onto the tag end and wrap over the top of it. It will bind onto itself and let you wrap it around the liver a few times. This will do a really good job of keeping the liver on your hook.
I know it sounds kind of crazy, but this is what we used to do to fish for Wipers in Texas. The rubber material from the golf ball is so stretchy that it works perfectly... Normal rubber bands won't work..
you must have had some good luck with the dynamite epic. I have a tube of it and used it twice with no success. I have the blood flavor and used it inside of the little plastic balls with a treble and mixed it in with liver inside of pantyhose. It says if there is no bite within 20 minutes then there is no fish around. I don't believe that considering I have caught many cats at the place that I tried it out. What are your thoughts on it?
Oh that dynamite. i've tried the m-70's at a beaver pond when I was a kid and it didn't work. But I heard that if you dump lime in the water, they will come floating up. I learned this from a militay survival book. Never tried it and probably never will though.
These things have been used in Louisiana. I was born and raised near Pineville La. and my Dad and uncle used these things back in the early 70s. But he used an electric fence charger. They work great but are very illegal.
