    I and fellow boc member 223smitty went up to the lakes for some crappie and cat fishing. We got into nice crappie and cleaned them before dark, I took the eggs out of alot of them and used them as bait later that night. Man I hooked 5 nice channel's, and we didnt have much luck on are other baits.

    I used tread to keep the egg's on.

    Anybody ever use fish egg's? I know I'am keeping the egg's out of any fish I clean from now on.

    Scott.

    my uncle crappie fishes ALL the time & always saves the egg sac. he freezes them & uses them for when he does occasionally catfish. he, too, ties them on w/thread--actually, he just winds the thread around the sac & hook several times. he even cuts the sac in half to get more bait (he doesnt cut it until he's ready to use it coz the eggs spill out). we caught em like crazy, big, small, turtles, drum, carp, bass, everything.

    I've never used them but have always heard of people having good luck with them. I've also heard of people using panty hose to keep them in and on the hook. I'll have to try it this year!
