Chicken necks are good. Fish heads or sardines better if you can get them.

turkey necks. I use electrical zip ties to keep them on my nets. Gotta tighten them up with a small pair of pliers every few passes. Just cut them off when you finish. Don't throw the zip ties in the water when you leave though. Works like a charm.

I use turkey necks. Never did that good with chicken necks. I bought some stainless steel clips at G&F to attach necks to nets they work great

Crabs

You will catch well with chicken quarters but if you have crab traps that can be left overnight, any type of fish will do better than chicken such as shad, poggies, cut up mullet, etc.

Drop nets

I use chicken legs. I get the big packs at Wally World. Necks dont work so well cause they want meat not skin.

Used fish heads once and couldn't keep the garfish off of them. That was in the B C Spillway. Don't know about garfish in the PAC area. Was kinda funny when my son would say ''Dad look another float kicking up a rooster tail.''
