If you are using the Jensen eggs that come in a connected strand, try this.......break off two eggs and thread one egg up the shank of the hook, and leave one egg stcking out at right angles to the shank away from the hook point.....Add a SMALL piece of white or a combo of white/pink....white/peach woll (no bigger than the eggs themselves)...Use with any kind of scent.....Ortho
If you want your Jensen Egg(s) to stay up on the shaft of the hook near the eye, then you can run the line from your bait loop/bumper knot through the egg and then back out again through the eye. Don't forget the wool too.
I thread both Worms and Jensen eggs onto my leader with a 6 inch sewing needle. Before threading them on, I thread a sequin onto the line so that it acts as a bumper between the worm/egg and the eye of the hook. You can get sequins at any fabric, dressmaking or hobby shop.
I think the size of the Jensen egg is more important than the colour....I have thrashed water with what I thought was a killer set up and after catching nothing switched to a smaller egg and wham! first cast..go figure.....same colour too!.Ortho
