Black Snail Pellets

They're back!

These highly popular pellets contain our exclusive Caviar liquid to match our range of Black Snail boilies, pop-ups, glugs, stick mixes and liquid foods. Their dark colour blends nicely into the surroundings, thus making them less conspicuous and a very good edge when fishing for rig shy fish or 'natural feeders'. They also have a habit of attracting natural food to swarm all over them, particularly snails and caddis larvae, which in turn creates a natural carpet of food within your baited area. Totally different to most other pellets available. To further increase attraction properties, just drop in small amounts of Black Snail Liquid Food and shake well for an even coating.

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.
