eggstowels.jpg (25108 bytes) Place eggs skeins in paper towels over night to dry in refrigerator.
skeinpile.jpg (23611 bytes) Remove from paper towels and pick paper so eggs are clean (Do not rinse)
cutbait.jpg (19874 bytes) Cut skeins into bait size pieces. Remember you can always cut them smaller later, but you can't make them bigger.
layering in borax.jpg (30887 bytes) Place a layer of borax into container, then add eggs, then more borax to cover clusters. Repeat until the bucket is full of layers or you run out of eggs. I place the bucket with a tight sealing lid in the refrigerator for a few days to toughen the clusters. You can also speed up the process by air drying them.
bucketskeins.jpg (32551 bytes) This is a cured bucket with the clusters ready to be removed and placed into Ziploc bags. The skeins to the right will be in the bucket soon.
watersealziploc.jpg (14775 bytes) Using a sink full of water to remove air from Ziploc bag before freezing. It is also a good idea to label your eggs before placing in freezer.
When I need eggs I toss them frozen into the microwave for 30 seconds to thaw. If they are still rock hard I hit them with another 30 seconds. Don't want to cook them...just thaw enough so you can get them fishable.
