Berkley® Gulp!® Floating Salmon Eggs
Works well for Trout
We picked up these in red for the last fishing trip of the fall last year. We had five adults and twelve kids ranging from 6 to 12 with us. The Gulp seemed to work the best out of all the bait there. The only other thing the fish were biteing was a fly. We left with 25 trout and we were only at the lake for about an hour and a half. The gulp will always be with us from now on.

Not worth the extra money
I bought a couple of jars of Gulp Eggs because they were susposed to be so much better. NOT TRUE! I caught far fewer trout on the Gulp than on the 'Power Bait' Power Eggs I usually use. Not only do the trout not bite as well on them, but almost every bite you do get pretty much tears the eggs up and can hardly be reused, and, they dry out in the jar after a while. The Power Eggs on the other hand, (1) cost less (2) catch more fish (3) stay on the hook fish after fish after fish (4) don't dry out. Enough reasons for me! Sunrise and Chartreuse are my favorites. Don't waste your time and money on Gulp. My 2 cents.

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.
