Things you will need to make bass bait:

- Plastic bags or other storage container
- First cover a flat, moveable surface with ¼ inch of borax. Be sure the surface is clean so as not to taint the bass bait.
- Cut the egg sacs across the membrane. The cuts should be in sections of three to four inches.
- Lay the section on the borax. They should be about one inch apart.
- Sprinkle the eggs with more borax. Eggs should be lightly coated and all should be covered.
- Move the eggs to a sheltered area. The area should also have good air circulation. Leave the eggs on the moveable surface. Do not put the eggs in direct sunlight. Nor should the eggs get wet.
- Turn the eggs every twelve hours. The eggs will need to dry for two to three days. The eggs will be ready to use when they are dry and leathery to the touch.
- Place the bass bait in the plastic bags or containers until you are ready to use them. You have now made your own homemade bass bait.
Note: Salmon eggs can be removed from the fish during cleaning. Be sure to keep the eggs intact.
