Get your normal pellet mate without paying out your nose for the brand.

All the firms do is buy the same pellet, spread it out on a flat surface and really lightly spray it (using a fence sprayer type setup) with watered down glug, let it dry and repeat the process. Then get the average punter to pay through the nose for it.

You can do it on the same scale if you want the pellet smelling the same as you bait - just get yourself a small gardening spray bottle and thin down a bottle of glug that you want to use, add some other bits and bobs if you want.

Just make sure you spread the pellet out on a wide surface to let it dry properly, this is usually done in a heated environment but a warm room (or sun) will suffice.

Save yourself a fortune.

Be aware that pellets usually only have a 6 month best before from date of manufacture, so might not be at their best if using later in the season.

Buy your pellets now before they move. I heard April time, but how true that is I donít know. I think many Companies will buy them up in the next few weeks

I know this is probably a stupid question but it sounds like if anyone would know it might be you, any ideas when they plan on moving over there, ie. when should I make sure Iíve got the pellets I want for the year.

I used a few sacks of THESE last year, very impressed. They hold their shape in the water and I had a few lumps using them.

that is the question i am looking into. Skretting are still confident in the transition over the water but i guess the first order will be interesting. The league time for pellets has always been a major issue for me. we sell so many during the season and getting them replaced every time we need them has always been an issue. I wish i had a giant pellet machine!!

Are there going to be any uk based pellet manufacturers that will step up to take over at a more reasonable price (if skrettings do become much more expensive)

Yes all pellets are about to go up I just donít know when and by how much. Skretting biggest uk buyer pulled the plug last year. The skretting trout elite have been very consistent last year (I feed them to my fish) and they are better in my opinion (in warm water not winter time) than carp pellet
I use the carp pellet and feed carp pellet from about November through til April due to the lower oil content but I keep a close eye on each batch because my match team are very fussy about how the carp pellets work and take on water etc.

Thanks I thought they had changed, such a shame the fish loved those pellets. Are the elite the same as they were, and for those that use them, are they good ?

Skretting changed the recipe in royal horizons last year. They were one of the best pellets I have ever used. Basically they now have less oil to keep the trout farmers happy which is what the pellet is actually designed for in the first place.
Skretting carp pellets definitely change in batches. We sold tons and tons last year and they changed at least twice. Letís see what happens this year now that skretting is moving back to France

Potentially a bad batch then. Or a mix up with packaging. I normally use the elite pellet when I use skretting. But I buy mine from a feed store so I can check dates, etc on the packaging.

They were marked up with exactly the same labels as the other pellets I'd been using for years. Funnily enough around that same time I was watching a vlog by Leon Bartropp and he was saying exactly the same thing ! Maybe it was a bad batch or something at that time. The ones I always used were the most exspensive at around £43.00 a sack Skretting Horizon. Are they the same ones you guys are using ?
I'm a bit apprehensive about buying again as they were not half as good as the previous ones I'd bought.

To be fair I agree, had a few 25k sacks last year (skrettings) from a local supplier and they werenít as bindy as previous years, felt less oily. Was only one batch of about 3 sacks in the middle of the year, was weird. Definitely carp pellets as thatís all Iíve used for 15ish years. Intending to go back to trouties for a change this year after using them an age ago.

Hi mate, I bought 2 x 25 kg loads in 2018 and they were all pukka. I agree with greekski, sounds like you might have got the carp pellets instead of the trouties?

If you don't mind a limited choice in size and care about fish and water quality then you can buy 500kg from BPmilling and it's lower in oil. Never seen or used them myself but when I own my own lake this will be the sort of pellet I would try having read some very good reviews on them

Hi Yonny have you bought any pellets from Skretting / Titmus lately, the last lot I bought (early last year)were completely different from previous batches and no where near as effective. They looked a lot lighter in colour and didn't seem to have the same oil content. Prior to that I had used those pellets for around five years and agree the fish loved them.

Iíve just emailed the bloke and he said both the coarse and halibuts are Skrettings. For the money il be giving him a ring come March, normally do 200 kilo with my old man in a year so hopefully a bulk deal might happen, normally get one with other suppliers.

I've been using the Skretting pellets from Titmuss AKA Fishing Bait World for a long time. Great company, never let me down, and the carp love those pellets.

Got two feed places within 25 mins of my house thatíll beat 38 quid for 25kg by at least 4 quid a sack. Skrettings pellets do seem to be going up all the time, 15 years ago they were about 12 quid a sack. Coppens never seemed as good to make paste out of.

Not sure about fishingpellets.com but I use Fishing Bait Warehouse and order 25kg sacks to the house and it works well. The pellets are no better or worse than anything I've used previously and good value.

Grew up using Hinders pellet having lived in Swindon and have come to the conclusion that its no better than anything else, just more expensive.

I have been buying sticky krill pellet 2.5kg for £11.50 a pop but recently been told about a website called fishingpellets.com Iíve been on there website and can get 25kg of krill and shrimp pellet for £53 now that would be a massive drop in price I normally pay, can also get 25kg of halibut pellet for £36,

Anyone used this website before? Want to no what the quality of pellet is like before I actually buy any. The pellet will only be mixed with sticky krill boilie for my freebies and pva bags, another option is hinders Pellet combo but works out a bit more for the same amount of bait but not bothered if itís better quality.

any advice would be great thanks 👍
