bait question

Post By: Skow      Posted: 1/9/2008 4:00:11 PM     Points: 80    
A few years ago when I was ice fishing I noticed that the guy next to me was pulling up fish after fish almost automatically. When he was leaving he stopped to talk and i asked him what he was using and he gave me the rest of his bait. It looked like a chum/fish egg mixture and he told me what it was but I can't remember what it was called. He said you can buy it at tackle shops that sell worms, and crawlers etc. Does anyone know what this is called.

another thing to remember. there is no magic bait that works all the time. there are many varying factors.

you could have the worst bait in the world and you catch fish if your in them.

What were you fishing for and what what lake were you fishing? There is a little known secret that a ton of lakers caught out of Granby are hooked using a little-known chum/ egg mixture consisting of nothing more than eggs and sucker meat soaked in the juice found in a popular brand of jumbo shrimp eggs.

Darbs- I'll try anything once! When u say eggs, do you mean fish eggs? I've also heard they catch big Macks with 6-8" whole Herring. They can be found at Knutson's live bait on -line

Make your own! brookie eggs & smashed up crawfish wrapped in cheese cloth on a treble hook worked good on the granby macs a few years ago. Let me know if you find out what it is youre looking for!

Easter- yes, fish eggs. I have fished Granby for several years and have had success on lakers using the typical baits- store bought egg sacks, hand tied egg sacs using brown trout and kokanee eggs, tube jigs tipped with sucker meat, sucker meat on a plain hook, and even power bait. But, over the last couple of years, I have learned that several locals have had more success using the above mentioned baits soaked in a "special juice"- jumbo shrimp eggs. I have not landed any monsters using this method, but have caught consistent limits and tied for third in the tourney 2 years ago (my biggest fish have still been caught using tubes w/ sucker meat). Pay close attention to the local fishing shows that air on Saturday mornings covering Granby ice fishing- if you don't blink you might catch a quick glimpse of a shrimp egg jar in the expert's FishTrap.

I was at Chambers Lake. It was eggs that were mixed in with what looked like a thick paste and they were a paleish red almost ornage color. Sorry about the lack of details I was just throwing it out there to see if anyone else has seen it or used it.
