Hello all.
how do you run your eggs?
do you guys rig up like you would with yarn/corkies, and just drift the eggs solo
or do any of you float your eggs with bobber?

I like to run my eggs in formation. It teaches them to work as a unit, and I can keep tabs on them and watch for deserters from the comfort of my golf cart. Slackers and candy***** get worked twice as hard. Only the superior performers get drifted with corkies and yarn, or by themselves, the rest are deployed with the bobber unit.

What river you are on and how the hole looks determine what technique you should use! Keep using the roe off the bottom because float fishing with eggs is less effective, if you see me doing it, its just because I'm stubborn not because it works!! :lol: :dance:

What SS said... depends on condition. Some places you can do either equally effective IMO. Sometimes the lightest of floats and VERY LITTLE split shot with the bait presented just right, is the only thing that will do the trick. :confused:

Seems to me the coastal fish are less picky.. but the Sandy river fish are VERY picky! Who knows that's just what I've seen. I used a 1oz. bobber, 25lb. line, and big glob of eggs and yarn and slayed coho on the coast last year, but at the Sandy I scaled down to 1/4oz. weight, 8lb. flouro, and small baits and only got 1 bite, while my buddy had the lightest set-up possible and killed 'em.
Mess around with different set-ups wherever you go. There is no right or wrong way. What people need to figure out is you need to teach yourself, there is no ONE method of catching fish at all times. ;)

Ya, pretty much..just a rule of thumb..for coho you only want 5 to 10 berries..Osmosis taught me that one..thought I would pass it along.
