I'd throw it out. Low quality bait will only lessen your chances at catching fish. No sense in spending all that time and effort on gear and getting to the river only to save a couple of bucks by using bait that is well past its prime.Steely said:I bought some procured roe from freds, which when i bought it was firm and dry. Now Im half way through the container, and the roe is soft and gooey. Whats going on? should I just add some of my own borax to it?
