    Massive numbers of pinks are less than 2 weeks away.

    Good things come to those who wait?

    Red eggs make the worst bait of any salmonid. Best to worst for quality bait.

    King..
    Chum…
    Steel…
    Pink…
    Coho…
    Sockeye… dead last.

    Certainly NOT listed in order of abundance.

    Sometimes beggars can't be choosers.

    Red eggs suck for bait but they are better than nothing. I used to get them at fish cleaning tables by asking nicely and I caught plenty of fish with them.

    Really? I've never noticed any issues with Red eggs. Chum eggs always turn into a gooey mess on me tho, I quit using them.

    I've always kept the red eggs from fish that I dipped and never had a problem with them either. Sure beats paying for them. King eggs are the best I do agree but they are hard to come by and nobody shares those suckers... "fishon"

    Worst bait ? (don't tell valley silvers, )

    Valley fishermen usually hook the silver on a sharp hook when they taste test the egg cluster. LOL

    They do milk less but hold color & cluster well, + there are some tricks
    to enhance scent. ( Few fishermen share all of their egg curing secrets )

    My batch is almost ready for silver season, drying some, then will be bagged & frozen :


    Been using them for over 30 years with good success.

    Kinda hard to get king eggs lately
    Pink eggs clusters don't hold together well.
    Who keeps/kills chum ? for the eggs ?
    I like silver eggs, but gotta catch & cure them, by then I have enough fish in the freezer.

    Maybe it's just another Alaskan "Myth", LOL
    ( science behind the claim ? ? )
    I use egg clusters, not single eggs,

    be nice to see the same fisherman on the same day in the same water
    do a test (not know which eggs are on the line )

    ( I've caught silvers on orange ear plugs , flo-pink survey tape, silver gill plates ......... )

    I have over 1/2 gallon of red eggs if anyone interested
