Fishing Pellets Fix
Fishing pellets never used to be a big thing in bait. They exist because of their background as fish food used for commercial and privately owned stock. Today fishing pellets are one of the most popular baits out there used for fishing on commercial waters and this big change all came about when anglers twigged that the fish they were chasing were brought up on this stuff; basically they've been fed pellets since they were fry. The fish stock you'll find in commercial lakes know all too well what a pellet is and what means for them.
What good are Pellets?
Fishing pellets are a great way to attract fish in commercial water. As they are primarily a fish food, it's probably of no surprise that pellets are packed full of essential nutrients that the fish need, including various quantities of proteins and oils. This means that using pellets truly benefits the stock of fish by improving their health for them and this of course benefits subsequent anglers that come along. This is certainly the case these days with many varieties of pellet out there. When pellets' popularity first sky-rocketed on the fishing scene however, Trout pellets were the ones mainly being used and these high-oil pellets were having detrimental effect on stocks. Soon commercial waters imposed bans on Trout pellets in favour for Course fishing pellets with lower oil content that were better suited to other species.
How do fishing pellets work?
Some pellets are hard to touch and others are soft and this is down to which you choose. Casting loose pellets into the water will make a recognisable noise. Once in the water fishing pellets begin to dissolve and break up, casting particles and scent through the water. The scents are picked up by fish in the vicinity which are then in turn attracted to the area. You'll find that different size pellets take different lengths of time to dissolve.
What size pellet to use?
Fishing pellets come in a wide range of sizes, usually from 1/2mm right up to 22mm plus. Choosing what size to use really comes down to your aspirations for the catch. In simple terms a bigger pellet will help you target a larger fish. Knowing what you want to catch in terms of size is a crucial part of understanding and choosing your pellets and this can be changed as you fish with the provision that you have a range available. The most commonly used and versatile range for an angler would be from the smallest sizes through to around 6mm. If you want to use a pellet as hook bait you'll need a size larger than 4mm. Some of the larger pellets actually already come with a hole that's been made as a by-product of their production process but this usually only occurs on larger fishing pellets. This is a really handy feature but it is the smaller sized pellets that are more frequently used. If you've opted for hard pellets, these can be modified if needed using a bait drill or similar. Choosing soft pellets for hook bait might be a time-saver make life easier.
