From a site I found, I got these instructions: Single Egg Cure The Single Egg Cure produces single eggs that are firm enough to place on a hook. Boil water with 3 tablespoons of canning salt. Dip salmon or trout eggs into the boiling water for 5-15 seconds using a strainer. The object is to get a rubbery texture in the egg. It take some pratice so do not do your entire batch at once. Air dry the eggs on paper towels. Then freeze in plastic bags.
I boiled them about 15 seconds, but I don't know what rubbery means. Some popped fairly easily when squeezed. Should it take some pressure before popping?
Did the drying and froze them. I laid some in single flat layers in plastic wrap and/or a sandwich baggy. I made small sac piles and froze some that way too. It looks like none popped after freezing,so I'll see what happens when they thaw and when I handle them while tying sacs.
Either I wrecked a whole bunch of eggs, or I prepared a whole lot of bait.
