To many beginner to intermediate river salmon anglers, how to cure roe is one of the biggest mysteries in the sport.
The commercial powder cures on the market are relatively simple to use but they can still be intimidating…and results often vary wildly depending on the amount you put on, ambient air temperature, size of the eggs and curing times.
Then you have guides like me and other experts who make their own special proprietary concoctions and guard the recipe like it was the formula for Coca Cola…good for us, but not so much help to the guy who’s just getting to the game.
Luckily for all of you who’ve struggled with the whole bait curing process, Atlas-Mikes has just come out with Brite & Tight Cluster-Skein Cure, which will make life soooooo much easier for you.
The cure comes in liquid form and all you do is marinate fresh eggs in it (cut the skeins into chunks first unless they are really small) let ‘em soak 2-12 hours to get the consistency you want and then dry the baits. BINGO…you have good, quality baits ready to go! No powdery mess, no mixing, no massaging the cure into all the folds of the skein, no inhaling god-knows-what kind of chemicals.
It really is that simple!
