I have been wondering - has anyone used the salmon egg for a tip to small jigs or artificials? They seem handy and small enough and bright enough to tempt. What are the "go-to" tipping attractions for small jigs after the ice-out? ( I used "Gulp" waxies in natural last year, but they seem to have discontinued that color).
There are several rivers I fish for trout that have bluegills. One of the best baits for the trout are salmon or steelhead eggs. I have never hooked a bluegill on the eggs, but when I switch to wax worms I catch them. While I have been surprised how well "Gulp" works, in my experience it pales when compared to the real thing.
thanks ! There are so many other items to try, but that's the fun of it. I've tried crappie bites, but the times I've tried them they didn't coax a bite. However, crappie candy, gulp earthworms, Exude mini-grubs, power bair min grubs, powerbait /gulp larave or waxies, have all worked well. . . tied the gulp alive firsh fry ( with ieces broken off) also worked well.
