If your chicken liver keeps falling off the hook, try curing chicken liver with borax and salt. Curing chicken liver makes it extremely tough so you can keep the liver on the hook. Borax and salt also preserves the liver so it won't rot easily. Cured liver can last months in the refrigerator or up to a year in the freezer. You can make a big batch and then not have to fuss with pantyhose or bait thread while on the bank.
You can also cure chicken liver with Pro-Cure which contains borax. Pro-cure has attractants and dyes that make the liver more attractive to catfish. To see a video of how to cure chicken liver with Pro-Cure click here: http://youtu.be/9D7Hnhv39A0?list=UUzWn_gTaXyH5Idyo8Raf7_A
