    Don't know about being legal. But as high as they are per pound, I would sure not be using them. I'm not sure of the price this year. But 2 years ago here in Tn they were getting $68 per pound off the boats for them.

    It is illeagal to sell any fish or fish parts here , unless you are licensed to do so....but you can use any fish or fish parts that YOU have caught for bait...
    But you are still only allowed 1 spoon.
    I have made the caviar ,, yuck salty fishy eggs...chicken eggs for me

    As i should warn as long as the fish is legal to take from that water...

    Like close to home fishing waters in okc , there is a NO black bass clause,,
    You cant use them for bait.
    You see where i am going with this

    two questions.....

    How do you save the eggs to use at a later date?

    What type of fish, do you usually catch using the eggs?

    I STORE THEM IN OLD YOGURT CONTAINERS OR OTHER OLD FOOD CONTAINERS IN THE FREEZER. WE FISH THEM UNDER GAR WHEN THEIR SPAWNING.
    TIE A REGULAR HOOK ON WITH SEVERAL INCHES OF LEFTOVER LINE TO WRAP
    AROUND THE EGGS THAT YOU HAVE WOVEN ON THE HOOK. THAT IS ONE WAY TO TRY THEM.
