SonuBaits Halibut Pellets
Halibut Pellets are a superb bait for all specimen fish especially Barbel and Chub.
Made using the highest quality fishmeals and rich in Fish oils, these dense pellets will keep their shape, leaking flavour into your swim for longer periods of time.
These black halibut pellets can be used dry through a feeder, a common way is to use the 4mm version through a maggot feeder which allows the scent and a slow trickle of pellets to come out, washing over the downstream hookbait.
They can also be used through a mesh feeder or River feeder simply by dampening them down with water. Place the required amount of pellets in a tub and pour over a little water, just enough to coat the outsides of the pellet and give them a good shake. Then allow 30 minutes for the water to be absorbed into the pellets shaking them every 5 minutes to make sure the water is distributed evenly through the pellets. The pellets will soften slightly allowing them to be squeezed into a mesh feeder.
The speed at which they come out of the mesh feeder can be altered by squeezing them in harder to keep them in the feeder for longer. Generally at the start of a session when you want to create a bed of bait, squeezing them in softly will allow them to come out of the feeder quicker, but as the session goes on you can create more competitive feeding by slowing down the speed at which they come out of the feeder.
