It’s salmon season and while most guys are using just eggs or just a plug, I’m throwing the kitchen sink at them. I’m strong believer that fall salmon are big on big baits and I want to give them something that’s packed with their favorite things. Every salmon angler knows tuna blood is off the hook right now as is sand shrimp and it’s no secret they all eat eggs – so I give them all three – at once.

I like to call my bait, “The Kitchen Sink.” It’s not your traditional one colored egg cure and requires many ingredients, but good luck finding more productive bait.

This packaged bait can turn a bite on. Good, hot, fresh bait like this stimulates strikes from West Coast salmon and we prove that consistently while on the water daily. With big kings around now this is the bait I’m chucking.

Some people think I’m crazy for running all three baits together. But, I’m on the water daily, almost every day of the year. If it didn’t work I wouldn’t be doing it. I run all three baits because salmon love the tuna, the eggs and the shrimp. There are times where just the eggs are going to work fine, but with all three of them there’s excuse for the salmon then.

Let’s lay out the steps to creating this Kitchen Sink bait. It’s much easier than you’d expect.

Step 1:

Mix the following in a container:

Quarter bottle of Red Fire Brine

Quarter bottle of Red Nectar

Quarter jar of Fire Power

Quarter bottle of Red BorX O Fire

Step 4:

Drain the liquid from the container. If your eggs get smaller and tough drain them off and add Red Nectar. It will plump them back off. Otherwi
