Fishing pellets are miniature balls or short sticks made by mixing ingredients, baking them, and finally cutting them into the desired shape. Fish feed pellet ingredients usually include a mix of components like fish meal, vegetable matter, and milk proteins and a binding agent such as wheat.
Our Urban Bait fish pellets are used by anglers in a variety of ways and are a popular alternative to boilies. There are some basic differences between the two types of fishing baits. Pellets are sold in more sizes than boilies, ranging from 3 mm to 21 mm. Like with boilies, the best size to use depends on the size of your target fish, so if you want to catch small fish species like barbel and tench, go for a smaller size pellet.

Farmers in fisheries originally gave pellets to fish to cause weight gain before selling them to market. But nowadays, this protein-packed fish food is also a popular choice of bait when angling, as pellets are a fishing bait type that appeals to many fish species, including carp, bream, catfish, tench, and barbell.
Pellets are made by mixing the ingredients and then pushing the blend down small tubes to form a pencil-like shape. Vapour heating is used to harden the mix. Once hard, the product is cut into the desired length.
Pellets are basically concentrated ground bait. In water, pellets disintegrate quickly to form a fine layer of fishmeal pulp on the lakebed.
The size of the pellet will determine how fast it breaks down. Minuscule 1 mm pellets will break down in a matter of minutes, while 21 mm hard coarse pellets may need a few weeks to break down completely.
As the pellets dissolve, the undertow in the lake will convey the smell of the dissolving feed throughout the water, attracting fish to find the source of the scent and eventually influencing them to eat the bait or swim through the dissolving pellets searching for something more substantial.
We stock a choice of Urban Baits pellets in various flavours in 2 mm and 6 mm sizes.
The 2 mm micro pellets break down too quickly to hook, and as such, are best used to quickly form a strongly scented layer of mushy attractant matter to draw fish to your hookbait. Pellets from 4 mm upwards can be hooked and are also excellent as loose feed when carp fishing.
