    Sacramento pro tackle on Northgate here in Sacramento has some pretty darn good eel going for $15, they are large and in charge and shipped in from Oregon. I have had success with it so far this year, although I have yet to bag that elusive keeper.

    Re: Lamprey

    I have always used uncured which is why I go through do much of it, it stays fairly well if the eggs are small when the eggs get large the roe tends to fall apart easier making it harder to thread on the hooks. I have also tried netting and it worked as well

    Thanks for the tip. Didn't think of that.

    Re: Lamprey

    Any pointers on the proper way to bait hook with eel/roe combo? My roe I wrap up with netting and made a roe ball.(about golf ball size)
