go to Walmart and pick up some pro-cure and just follow directions :D its pretty simple. then you can do your own variations like some people do to make their roe yummier

Here are some sample sites with different recipes and tips.

Basically, common themes are: start with good fresh roe that is clean and has no blood on it. So start by making sure you bleed your fish right away. A gazillion different recipes and after awhile they all start looking similar. But, they all do the same thing: you want to toughen the eggs enough so they stay on the hook but still milk scent while in water. Adding scents to your finished product is also a neat little tip... ;)

Take your pick, and experiment. I prefer a variation of the brine technique myself, over commercial cures like Procure. Less messy I find.

Also, put your skeins from the fresh fih into a ladies nylon and leav it in the water you caught it from for an hour or so or forever how long you can until you get it on ice. :2cents:

Just tried a new recipe and it works phenomenal :happy:

1. Air dry the skein whole(do not cut up!)

2. Rub in Anise oil (find at health food store)

3. Rub in 1 package of knox gelatin

4. Put plenty of Borax into ziploc bag, put skein in bag and shake, shake, shake.

5. Freeze.

Simple and it works. :thumbup:

Lots of useful information, thanks a lot! what is the easiest way to separate the eggs into chunks without breaking them?


I just use scissors to cut mine up! I am a big fan of procure methods myself and am willing to take the time to prepare the best cured roe possible.Lasts alot longer out on the river and time is money.

Don't worry about breaking eggs. You might find more fish will attack the roe, or roe bag/egg sac if you do puncture a few eggs....Camo's the human scent and lays down a scent trail of its own in the water....Always drift the same spot at least twice........Ortho 8)

There are lots of commercial egg cures out there. Most are great, some not so great. You need to try a few to fine which one best works for you.

Mercs post was great, but he missed this one(it has helpful pictures :thumbup: : http://steelheaduniversity.com/egg_cure.html


The trickis to start with good clean fresh eggs. Bleed the fish and get them on ice ASAP!!!! You can take so far as to never tough the skeins, but using gloves too to mask the human scent.

Amato books puts out a book on Egg Cures by Steve Haugen. I like the book and is......... well used to say the least.

Good luck !!
