light or white salmon eggs

by buck -

white eggs are awsome consitent hits, the hardest thing is to figure out is the amount of splitshot,for the current. keep bringing them on

Best Eggs Ever

by Freddo

I've used these for 40 years and caught four rainbows today on them. Old reliable. light line, "B" split-shot and I bury a #16 fine wire fly hook in these eggs and rarely miss one. Just awesome!

Atlas Mike's Salmon Eggs

by Hammer -

Mike's Salmon Eggs are perfect for Trout. Rainbow's typically respond aggressively to this bait. White (or Natural) and Orange (Cheese-Bait) are my favorites. The Atlas Mike's Shrimp Eggs are also always in my creel. If I had to choose one color Mike's eggs it would be the Pink Shrimp Eggs. I fish them by 'drift fishing' free flowing streams. I most often rig them by putting 2 eggs on a #8 hook using 4 lb test mono. Nothing fancy, just enough weight to occasionally bump bottom. Depending on conditions this is usually 1 or 2 B or BB split shot. I have tried single eggs on smaller salmon egg hooks but have found that 2 eggs on a #8 baitholder tends to outperform. Cast upstream and across the current. Hold the rod tip high and track the drift with the rod as it comes past you. Gradually lower your rod tip as the drift passes you to maximize time and distance in the water. Focus on the most natural drift possible --- not dragging the line cross-current or up current. At times in slower moving stretches of water, I have presented these with absolutely no split shot and had great results. The trick (if there is one...) is to discern 'bottom bumps' from a fish picking up the eggs. You have to get the feel for it and be ready to set the hook because many trout will strip the eggs or let go in heavy current within 1 or 2 seconds. Try it --- You'll like it! In addition to Rainbow's I have caught many stocked and holdover or naturally born browns and brookies on these eggs... particularly the Cheese Bait Orange ones. The eggs I have ordered from FishUSA have always been fresh and firm, and stay on the hook well. Keep in mind that these do have a limited shelf life, and within a season open bottles tend to degrade, getting soft and stinky. At this point, they do not stay on the hook well and it is time to replace them. Do not allow them to sit in warm or sunny locations or they will degrade even faster.

Atlas-Mike Cheese Salmon eggs are #1

by huntfish_bhappy -

I use these on a # 8 bait hook. Forget the Salmon egg hook they are too brittle and will break. Let them drift in pools get them under rocks and watch them disappear. Use a split shot if water is too fast..get them down deep near the bottom.

Top Quality at a great price!!!!


I really like Mike's Salmon Eggs for trout fishing in streams, especially riffly streams with fast running water. Dump the oil out of the jar, pour the eggs on a paper plate, and then thoroughly salt the eggs with common table salt. Then put them back in the jar and remember to refridgerate the jar if you have any eggs left after your fishing trip. The salt firms the eggs up so that they hold up better on the hook (only problem with the eggs, from what I can see). Put the egg on a short shank hook, and drift it with as little weight as possible in riffles, runs and fast flowing areas of a stream. Great for rainbows!! Just want to add a word and a thumbs up on the great quality [...]

These freaking things WORK!

by Steve Rice -

Who knew? Always used salted minnows, mealies, garden worms, Caddis sticks, nymphs. Last year Dad & Sister knocked the [*]out of the trout while I had to work hard. Maybe because PA's stocking more Rainbows in the Northeast creeks? Dunno, but I cannot argue with bouncing these pale yellow eggs off the bottom - tap-tap BOOM! Limited out each day. They stay on the hook well, too!

always been fresh

by trout master

i use this product drift fishing for trout in current. but they also work well in deep pools where the smell can attract the fish. most times trout will act agressive to salmon eggs but sometimes they will just nibble. be patient and wait for the strike when this is the case. finally i only use the king deluxe light mikes salmon eggs never saw a need to switch.

bad salmon eggs

by Jeff -

These eggs were old. They looked bad in the jar and when I tried to use them they feel apart.

Strong attractant

by Eli -

Trout will devour these eggs. Sometimes, the fish will aggressively nip the eggs off of the hook, without biting the hook, which necessitates frequent egg replacement. I found the plastic egg to be equally beffective, but without the need for frequent replacement.
