  • micros not sticking

    hi guys i use skrettings like alot of people but when i try using them on the methos or bango i find they either dont stick together or if to moist go sloppy is there a rule of thumb to water to pellet ratio or is there a little trick im missing
    i have been having to add some method to get them to stick

    TrY adding a small amount of horlicks or sonubaits stiki pellet powder to the pellets ian,it helps them bind together.

      The one problem i have found with sonubaits stiki was it set like concrete in the container it comes in after a couple of uses. I use horlicks and it works fine .

        I always get them to stick to the method with just water for shallow swims, in deeper water more than 5 ft horlicks is good.

        He says he gives me good advice. does he ?

              If you are using corn, use the liquid from the tin,its ads a bit of flavour and just gives them a little bit of extra sticking power.

                          Put your pellets in a tub then only just cover them with water & put lid on,after 10 mins turn tub upside down for 10 mins works every time. Any errors ie to much water add Horilicks.

                              do not do this with skrettings pellets way to wet for skrettings. skrettings do not need a lot of water.
