    Sockeye… dead last.

    Certainly NOT listed in order of abundance.

    Sometimes beggars can't be choosers.


    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

    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"

    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.
