Hey Big Un nice fish! I mentioned this once before long ago when people were talking about various ways to get their bait to float off the bottom. For the past several years I have had really good luck using the small round foam balls that lots of tackle stores carry. They usually come in a couple of different colors and are about the size of a large salmon egg. Slide one on your hook then up onto the line then fill your hook without your preferred bait. After baiting up slip it back down to the hook like you would with your power egg. They seem to be much more bouyant than any of the power eggs or bait and will float just about anything. We even use one when fishing just straight power or gulp bait. It has dramatically increased our number of bites in situations where you just have to get that bait above the weeds or whatever for the fish to find it. They seem to be pretty durable and don't go flying off your hook when you cast and many times we have been able to catch several fish before losing the foam ball and just have to re-bait as normal after a bite or whatever. Give it a try I think you will be surprised and I am sure they will float that roe for you. I had my doubts and even laughed at them the first time a buddy of mine bought a pack but it only took me trying them once to make a believer out of me.
