The best trout bait
The best trout bait out of all I have used. It's the only one I use now.

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!

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!
