Northwest favorite Pautzke Bait Co. – known worldwide for their “Balls O’ Fire” eggs and “Soft But Satisfying” recipe – continues an over 70-year tradition of providing premium eggs and attractants to the trout, salmon, and steelhead world by teaming up with Northwest dry cure specialist Mark Yano to produce the most sought-after, proven formula for salmon & steelhead: Fire Cure™.
Yano, originally from Hawaii, spent his youth pursuing saltwater fish but quickly turned into a freshwater fanatic after moving to Oregon in 1980. In 1981, Yano mastered his own egg cure formula, “Yano Cure,” which quickly became a Northwest favorite. Now, Yano and Pautzke Bait Co. have teamed up to produce the most effective curing formula available. Combining Pautzke’s world-renowned knowledge in egg science and proven secret seasonings with Yano’s formula and curing technique makes Fire Cure™ a necessity for all anglers.
To maximize angler results, Pautzke’s new, highly acclaimed Krill attractant was combined with Fire Cure’s™ multi-color lineup making it the most versatile cure for all weather/water conditions. Krill, proven to be a major food source for salmon and steelhead, has the strongest scent/attractant properties known, making Fire Cure™ the most efficient colored/scented formula available.
