    I've heard wonderful things about baby lampreys, but I've never found any of those..........

    I've used hooligan. They work fine, and they work fine for pike, too.

    I've seen people catch them on salmon eggs at the mouth of Rabidoux Creek
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Chicken liver works well - a lot better use for it than eating. Grayling heads work - they are not to particular.

    No Way!

    I consider chicken livers as the second best liver on Earth to eat (behind only rabbit liver, and just ahead of blacktail deer liver).

    ....Grayling heads work - they are not to particular.
    Grayling heads are great bait for burbot.
