How to add krill scent to loose eggs from salmon or trout

Adding krill and other scents to cured salmon or trout eggs can increase their effectiveness. Krill powder and other liquid scents can be added to salmon or trout eggs during the curing process. We like to add the scent after the eggs have been cured, as we feel that the potency of the scent is not diluted during the curing process.

Step 1: Cured eggs are defrosted if frozen and placed in a shallow plastic tub.

Step 2: Powdered Krill, Krill oil and Salmon Egg Oil extracts to add to the cured salmon eggs. Other scents that are popular as salmon eggs additives are: Herring Oil, Sardine Oil, Anchovy Oil, Anise Oil (not Anise extract which is alcohol based), shrimp oil, and others.

Step 3: Krill powder is shaken onto the cured salmon eggs. We like to use 2-3 teaspoons of krill powder to each batch of salmon eggs.

Step 4: Krill Oil is also added. We squirt about two teaspoons of oil on to the batch of eggs. Krill oil is a more intense flavor and will help the scent penetrate the eggs.

Step 5: We also like to add Salmon Egg Oil extract to the cured eggs. The Salmon Egg Oil helps the salmon or trout locate your spawn sack.

Step 6: Gently stir the eggs with a plastic spoon to distribute the krill powder and oils to all of the eggs. The eggs are then covered and place in the refrigerator overnight before using them to make spawn sacks.

Step 7: Finished scented eggs ready to use in spawn sacks.
