The original - and after more than 75 years - still the best! Pautzke's Green Label® Balls O' Fire® salmon egg is the world's most recognized and best selling egg. Hand down, more trout have been caught on Pautzke's Green Label® than any other egg on the planet. Green Label® is the No. 1 selling natural trout bait of all time and the most effective.
The icon of our family owned company since conception in 1934 and the workhorse of line, Green Label® salmon eggs are the most common egg used by anglers in the world. More than 75 million jars of Green Label® eggs have been sold since the 1934. At least 500,000 jars are sold annually. Green Label® is our most common egg. Applicable in any situation, the Green Label® is a user friendly egg that is derived from king or chum salmon. It's also mildly priced, yet falls slightly in quality to Premium®, Gold Label®, Orange Deluxe®, and Yellow Jackets®.
There isn't a wrong place to fish the Green Label®. They can be fished in moving water or sterile reservoirs. Cooked in a carefully mastered and trade secret cooking process, the Green Label® is the most universal egg on the market today and has been for more than seven decades.
Known globally as the highest quality salmon egg on the planet, Pautzke's Premium® Balls O' Fire® salmon eggs are not only particularly valuable for trout, but also a favorite for salmon and steelhead anglers. Cooked to precision and combined with our secret Pautzke family recipe, the Premium® egg is plump, juicy and the largest egg in our line. It's the preferred egg for tying spawn sacks, when fishing for salmon or steelhead and trout. Plump, juicy and firm it's the largest egg in our line.
Hand picked from late harvest king salmon, Premium® is our utmost quality egg in the Balls O' Fire® line. These top of the line eggs are uniform in size, tightly graded, clean and large. There are no loose fragments of eggs in the jar. They are the highest quality egg available period. Premium® eggs are the perfect egg for the angler who is willing to spend more money for a better product. Please take into account, because the Premium® egg is larger than our traditional egg you'll only need to put one on the hook, instead of two as you might in the case of Tyee® or Green Label® eggs.
