Great Lakes Steelhead and Salmon
Cool nights means fall is on the way. Fall is the time of year that my business dies down a bit and the fishing heats up alot. Tying some multi-color eggs and some bloodspots and stripes. All colors work, just some work better than others in different water clarities.
On the North Shore of Lake Superior I have found over the past several years that white and baby pink are my go-to colors. With the tannin coloration of many of those streams pink and white really pop. All colors do work though.
I like to make a few different sizes. I generally choose a size 8 hook and I really prefer stainless steel hooks. I sometimes leave the egg a bit fluffy and other times trim it tight. In deeper slower water a fluffy egg can outproduce a tight egg.
Generally high/dirty water means big and bright. Low and clear water means small, sometimes as small as a 16 penny carpentry nail head.
