Has anyone used liver before as bait from the shore. I tried it once as a cocktail with lugworm but blanked, on saying that everyone blanked that day.
You would think the blood would attract a few species such as cod,conger,ling etc.

What i did notice though was it came back in almost white like the saltwater had bleached it.
I would be interested to know of any results using liver (shore or boat).

Also wondered if it would make a good pike bait.

(Was pigs liver that was used before)..... cheers:) :)

you have me thinking now...........aint tried Liver.........but have been using
Steak in pieces and minced for chub fishing for yrs to good effect.
Dont see why you couldnt adopt the same principal for liver on float tackle
with minced liver/steak with bread crumb as groundbait for mullet /wrass,
Again im not sure which species respond better to a blood trail,
but if scent is the key......give it a go..i will be.
Cheers

used liver a few times but never caught ,it just looks the perfect bait though,maybe putting it in with a few mackie fillets and leaving overnight in an icecream tub might see an improvement in the catch rate....:g:

In the eighties I used liver for flounder and eels on the Humber Bank. Cut into strips and leave in the sun a bit to harden it up.... works well. Have had whiting and dogs on it a couple of years back from Watchet as an experiment.

How do you get the fava beans and the cheap chianti to stay on the hook?
