Hey, I just got back home from delivering 24 jars of Amerman Salmon Eggs to the Delta Park GI Joes. They are asking $24.88 for a quart jar. Have fun and let me know how you do. :dance: :dance:

When I bought from them direct, they said the eggs would last 2 weeks in the refrigerator or if frozen, the season. I break mine down into baggies the size I need for each outing, then freeze everthing else except for what I am going to immediately use.

24 Jars? Looks like you want to make frequent trips! Those won't last any time at all, I bet they all sell by Wed! Good to see we can get them locally now, thanks Grant!

Hi Grant,

How does GI's price compare to buying them direct from Amerman? As I recall I paid like $24 for 2 lbs (in a bag) plus shipping when I bought them. Does a quart equate to 2 lbs?

Thx!

Do you sell the cure there also? And if you do is it for the same price as online? Otherwise, I'll just send for them. Scott gets them out fast so it only takes a day or two and I LOVE that cure!

The stores with the eggs also carry the cure. With shipping the price is about the same as buying it from GI Joes.

West Linn Wader, for this season we will probably only be carried by the Delta Park store. Fishermans Marine Supply told us that nobody would ever spend that kind of money on salmon eggs. Go figure....

Pay that much for bait?....This is the part that always makes me laugh......10 to 50k and up for a boat plus all of the other things we throw our dollars at...Then people buy 2 cent hooks and 5 cent line and the cheapest bait and whine about no fish....

The only part of all the $$$$ the fish will see is the business end of the whole thing.

"The chain is only as strong as the weakest link"

Ever heard that one? The only part the fish cares about is what you put in his face!

The 90% that catch the 10% should be taking notes here!

If you don't have eggs that catch fish....You should give these a try.

I'm hooked on them!

Cool Grant,

Are these like those Patskey's salmon eggs? Those things are great for like blue gill, carp, and those planter trout. I'd really like to get some of those. Can't wait to try them at Uncle Wally's Trout Farm.

Do you really think they'll out produce those little marshmallows?

You know, you could use that other new fangled contraption called the telephone
. Just call Fisherman's and ask for the fishing counter and when they answer ask if they carry Amerman eggs. When they tell you they don't just tell them you'll have to go to GIJoes to get them then. Or better yet ask to talk to the store manager and request that they carry them. If enough people request them I'll bet the change there tune. They may be a little slow around there but I bet there not dumb about making some profit.
