Berkley® has loaded these Gulp!® Floating Salmon Eggs with their Gulp! attractor scent which is up to 400 times more powerful than the scents on regular plastic baits. The potent Gulp! scent rapidly disperses in the water to attract sensitive-smelling trout and salmon. Formulated to stay on the hook longer and to outperform natural salmon eggs. Now you know why these little guys are so popular! 0.56 oz. jar.
These salmon eggs are great! Awhile back I purchased (3) jars of pink, yellow and orange. I've had good luck with all of them but I've had the best results with orange. I've never used salmon eggs before, so I had to do a little research first on how to properly fish with them. I make a drift rig which is practically a carolina rig. I like to use heavier weights to ensure I'm at the bottom when drifting. I use 3/8 or 1/2 oz. egg sinkers. I also put a clear bead between the knot and sinker to ensure I won't break off my 6# mono. I always go with the #8 mustad egg hooks. I tie off a 2'-3' leader and make an egg loop knot. I've just been using one egg at a time. The eggs stay on the hook and hold up really well. When drifiting simply get to the bottom let out another 5' or so of line and wait for that pecking type bite. When you get this bite, quickly let out line for about 6 seconds to ensure that he's got it swallowed. Next, reel in the slacked line and lightly set the hook. Using eggs like this won't catch you big trout, but it's an easy way to have fun. If you catch and release trout like myself have a good hook degourger with you because they will have it swallowed most the time and trout are pretty sensitive fish out of the water. Good Luck!

If you want to catch your limit of stocker trout give this a try! Pink or red seem to work the best.

I have tried several of the artificial salmon eggs out there. None of them work half as good as these babies. I head out to a local dam on the Mackenzie river and just KILL the trout with this bait.
Two of these eggs in the dark red color on a #8 circle hook will land you a fish on every single cast. On one fine day this summer I boated more than fifty trout in one single Sunday afternoon.
I own a jar or two in every color, but the dark red is the consistent producer in my area. I have also had fine results mixing a red and a white egg.
Give these babies a try--you won't be sorry you did.

Works very well!!
Coming from the Virginia where I was used to warm water lake/pond fishing, I had no idea how to catch a trout. I have never had luck with preserved baits but decided to give these a try.
I had used salmon eggs and couldn't catch anything. These were brighter (I purchased the blaze orange) and float. I use it on my medium action spinning rod with an egg sinker above the hook. While reeling in steady and jerking the rod tip slightly I get these to bounce off of the bottom.
My first cast in the Truckee River in a spot that my friend said he had caught fish before, I got a 12" rainbow on my first cast. I went to the same spot the other day using the same method and got a bite my first cast, a fish the second, a fish the third and a fish on the sixth. I got another in about 10-15 more casts. This was all within a 15 minute period. The rainbows ranged from 8" to 14".
I didn't get anything else in same spot for the rest of the day but it could have been because 1) I changed baits (I wanted to see if the fish were biting because of this bait, or if they would hit anything else) or 2) because they just saw all of their buddies getting reeled to shore when they hit it.
I am going to try it again in a few days and go upstream and see if I can get more. I will make sure this stays in my tackle box for a long time coming!

I'm using a size 8 circle hook but the eggs are almost the size of the hook, so before I go with a bigger hook is there any particular way to rig these? should I be using J hooks instead of circle? What size? Thanks!
