Bait Factory Flavoured Coloured Pellets
A unique alternative to the usual pellets that circulate the market, one that the fish are sure not to have seen before. Coming in the new Bait Factory range of flavours, there is something to suit every angler, and tempt every fish.
These pellets are absolutely brilliant all year round due to their stable breakdown times, and median oil levels. Designed to be fished in conjunction with our range's glugs, boilies and pastes to maximise your catch rate. Available in packages of 6, 8mm, or in our mini range of 4 and 6mm.
Great tips to try with Bait Factory's pellet range
Bait Factory has a big range of pellets that match the boilies, pastes and glugs so you can have a perfect family of feed and use pva bags of pellets with an identical flavour signal to your spodded particles and boilies. Once carp are switched on to certain flavours, this will enhance your ‘run rate'.
Pellet colour can make a difference on some waters. Trial tests have shown that on clearer waters a light-coloured pellet can bring best results, while on more coloured conditions a darker pellet is an edge. The theory is based on visibility with a light pellet standing out in clear venues and a deep coloured one offering a silhouette in murky pools and rivers. With this in mind, it can pay to always carry two different tubs of Bait Factory pellets.
Most fish like pellets and they are a resilient bait – on some venues you can't use a maggot as small nuisance fish will grab it before a bigger, target specimen moves in. Traditionally pellets are seen as a bottom bait on rivers and lakes, but they are make for a brilliant trotted offering under a stickfloat for barbel and chub. Use a banded pellet, on a size 14 hook, and feed four or five loose offerings every trot through.
Try dampening your pellets to make them soft – they can then be used with a mould and method feeder. Simply half fill a bait tub, put half a cupful of water in it, then place the lid back on top. Give the whole lot a shake and then pour away the excess water. Leave to stand and the pellets will naturally absorb the liquid. Also try adding on of our Bait Factory glugs to the box prior to coating for added attraction.
Mega Mix pellets are available in a Spod Friendly bucket and are a
clever addition to the thinking angler's armoury as they are anti-spook.
By combining colours and sizes, you also deliver different breakdown
times so there's always a feast developing in the swim. The wide
selection of bait choices also encourages shoal fish to graze and once
that feeding spark is triggered, they are more likely to make a mistake
with the hookbait.
A drilled pellet on the hook can often score, but switching to a double bait can sometimes take catches to the next level. Small differences can spark terrific results so have several hooklengths made up. Coating the hookbait in a Bait Factory paste is also a great tactic.
When the temperatures begin to drop, a low oil pellet is a safer baiting solution as some fish can become wary of high oil content. With an oil level of just 5 per cent, the Bait Factory Ignite Carp Pellets are superb either spodded, catapulted or used in PVA. Available in micro or standard sizes, the buckets give a varied breakdown time ensuring a great bed of bait.
Bait Factory Pellets reviewed by Richard Lee
I'm going to make a bold statement but this new pellet launch by Bait Factory will win tackle awards in 2013 such is its innovation. Ok, that's a big claim, but let's consider the evidence.
When you walk into a tackle shop you have to remember that most of the bags of pellet are nothing more than bait repackaged from the aquaculture world. One bag of halibut pellets is the same as the next bag. That's why you should buy on price not brand.
Then some of the craftier companies have flavoured and coloured pellets… really stepping up to the mark. But the problem with many of these pellets is once they hit the water, the colour and flavour washes off, and you're left with the same old basic pellet everyone else sticks in a bag and sends off to market! It's the kind of stunt that catches more anglers than it does fish.
Hopefully by now you're getting the picture. Pellets… very important to coarse angling, but so few people make a pellet as the machinery is too expensive – they're simply bought in from the fish farming industry.
But that's now changed. In a big way!
Investment by the new Bait Factory business into supporting a vision of ‘flavour families' has meant the angling world now has a new generation of fish food for anglers.
When you choose the Apex bait range you get fennel and hemp boilies, fennel and hemp paste, fennel and hemp glug, in fact fennel and hemp everything including… pellets.
From the surface to the core, the Bait Factory pellets are coloured and flavoured to match your hookbait giving them a real edge over other companies.
Flavours include: Arctic Krill and Crab; Apex Fennel and Hemp; Reef Coconut Cream; Aztec Chilli-Chocolate Orange; Storm Tropical Fruit; Ignite Natural.
They are available in a unique oval design spod friendly bucket – it has a lip that allows a bank stick and butt rest combination to support it at waist height when feeding – in 2kilo or 3.5 kilo sizes. The pellets also come in Micro (2, 4 and 6mm sizes) or regular tubs (6, 8 and 10mm). I'd recommend investing in both for a full range and maximum variation in breakdown time.
The pellet range also extends to Carp and Micro Carp Pellets, again in spod friendly buckets, Mega-Mix Pellets in a variety of flavours and sizes – ideal for anti-spook when spodding or using pva bags. There's also tubs of drilled pellets – 8, 12 and 16mm – quality hooks baits for barbel and carp available in Halibut and Krill flavours.
This massive, revolutionary range is priced at between £4.99 and £10.99 and is sure to find an army of followers this season. Check it out.
