    When i was a kid, some 20 years ago, i always used some eggs that were called balls of fire. I think the brand name started with a P. It was Pl... im not sure but i think there was a n and a z in the name also. I never did try any of the Berkely baits; ie Power baits, trout nuggets, ect. The gulp series seems to be their, (Berkelys), engineering feat. I would say it is at least worth a real effort. Something the fish may not have seen before. Also be sure to try it in different situations and give it a chance to prove itself. You cant just pull it one day, use it for an afternoon and develop any kind of decent opinion about it. Something about them caught your eye, give them a chance to catch fish, not just a fisherfman.:lol:

    I havent tried the Gulp Salmon eggs but I have been really impressed with some of the other Gulp baits like the 6in herring. They work really well and give off a lot of scent and create their own "oil slick". From what Ive seen so far they do actually work as well as live bait. Ive had blues slam them fishing on bottom just like I was using real herring or shad. Im in the experimenting stage with them right now and like what I see.

    They work, I've caught a some on them, but IMO, powerbait is much better.

    I haven't tried them. When I do use bait for trout, I've always just used powerbait or nightcrawler.

    Try them out a few times and let us know how you do.

    I haven't used the gulp eggs but I've used the little gulp worms and the rainbows loved them.

    WHEEEW I was worried there for a minute.When I saw GULP salmon eggs I thought it was a new technique I would have to master.Usually I just slowly chew mine then swallow them.Gulping isn't good for you.:lol: :eek:oooh: :smile2: :tounge_out: Ken where did you find the herring.Holding out on your Santee buddies huh??????:sad2: :lol: Sure would save on the effort of keeping the little devils alive in the livewell.:smile2:

    Yep, those are the ones! Green lid, if I recall correctly. Matter of fact, I probably still have a jar or two of those things floating around in one tackle box or another!

    Thanks for the memory!

    The best way to rig a salmon egg is with a ..... salmon egg hook .And I'm seriousthey are real short shanked j hooks the right size for just one egg

    When we fish them in faster current, we hook two eggs on one egg hook. It took a bit of practice to get them both on there. If you ever hooked an egg bad and the hook is hanging half out of it, then you are almost there on this technique. Two eggs are more visible and we catch a lot more fish this way. We can cast it further, too. Seems like no matter where we fish, they are always just three feet farther than what we can cast. :crazy:

    you can buy some that do float but the berkly gulp ones i was talking about do float but PATZUKES dont. i just use a j hook with a float.
