5k AC bucks if you can guess what's in the bag that I fed my aros for breakfast.

HINT: I hand-picked them myself....

they taste pretty much like chicken eggs. The old timers around here used to saute them in butter and have a feast.

I have also heard of oldtimers feasting on the eggsacks. not as popular as the perch fillets though nowadays for most. I'm sure they are incredibly nutritious though.

Very greasy on the discharge end of things when fed to your fish, keep an eye on your water quality when feeding them, a lot of fat content.

The cholesterol is like 9 times higher than chicken eggs of the same quantity, a grabber just waiting for you there.

the aros swallow them whole. not too much off a mess.

just a once inawhile treat for them and free food for me when we catch alot of perch. :ssmile: the aros get perch fillets as a treat sometimes aswell.
