Update March 2023: Due to big increases in pellet manufacturing costs coupled with huge rises in ingredient costs over the past 12 months, we have decided to limit this range of pellets to our two best selling products for the time being, but will monitor the situation during the coming months.

Manufactured exclusively for Essential Baits and not available elsewhere under a different name! They contain all the same key ingredients and attractors that are found within the matching boilies, therefore, the promise (smell) of food will match up with the boilies you are using, which is a massive edge over the vast majority of other pellets. Due to their quick break down times, these pellets soon turn to a soft consistency, thus making it difficult for the carp to individually pick them out, yet the stimulatory effects of the food signals are still very strong and keeps the fish 'rooting' around within the area for long periods. Both the B5 and the Black Snail pellets will provide a massive advantage to any baiting situation.

The benefits of Pellets

Team Essential member Lee Carpenter with one of his many big fish. Underwater attraction and stimulation plays a big role in Lee's success and pellets are one of the best ways to achieve this.
The use of pellets as a carp fishing bait has been well documented over the years, but their success isn’t surprising when you begin to consider just how many young carp have been fed on them during their early years. Most carp will instantly recognise pellets as a viable food source, and the fact that they break down quicker than boilies means that they release their food signals more efficiently. This will usually encourage smaller fish into the area first, but will often trigger a feeding response from the carp shortly afterwards.

Pellets are also an extremely versatile bait, that can be introduced in a variety of different ways. One of the best methods is to use them inside mini PVA bags with a few crushed boilies. The full package is no bigger than a tea bag, but leaves a nice little pile of food perfectly presented and difficult for the carp to ignore!

Larger beds of pellets can also be very effective, particularly on heavier stocked venues when trying to create competition for food. On lower stocked venues however, a few pouch loads of pellets sparsely scattered around your baited rig will undoubtedly increase attraction and keep the carp searching for food. This method will always keep a food trace in the area and increase the chances of pulling fish into the baited zone.
