Its cheap enough to grab a tub of chicken liver but some other parts of the chickens innards are a bit heartier (pun intended).

So in a pack of chicken innards there are gizzards, hearts and liver.

The question is do stripers like gizzards and hearts? I havent tried and figured I would ask the forum before I spent a day wasting my time trying to figure it out lol.

It's all about the blood, as with other cut bait the stripers will key in on the blood trail. Never say never, give them a try.
cut sardines, anchovies, Lug worms, blood worms, chicken liver, nightcrawlers, also look at the body of water your fishing in.

So I have done a bunch of research on this topic since your reply. I found the reason people dont use the gizzards and hearts is that all blood is drained from them while the liver does not have the blood drained. Most of what I read stated to put the gizzards and hearts in with a batch of chicken livers to reabsorb blood. Then they will work well.

I have done this and wens I will be testing them out.
