    Hi Paul

    I've done my own for many years. Put your required 4, 6 and 8mm pellet into a bait tub, either use a jelly or gelatin, dilute it and put it over your required size pellet, just cover them and then place on the lid, put them in the fridge over night. If you want to add colouring and or flavouring, just add to diluted jelly or gelatine once it as melted. Once i have done mine i keep them in an air tight stay fresh container. There is no need for pumping as the weight of the jelly is ample.

        Something very satisfying catching on something you have made yourself.

          We all have our. Own way of doing things and none are better or worse others.
          I do mine this way. Dissolve gelatine in boiling water and let cool until virtually cold, keep stirring every so often so as gelatine doesn't congeal on the bottom of bait tub.
          Pour in pellets when water is right temp until just enough wAter to cover them.
          Leave for 20 mins, drain off and put in plastic bag with all air taken out, leave in fridge overnight. I find they don't blow. Up this way and stay more uniform.
          Some will not be right so just look of a uniform pellet.

            Hi.

            Nearly the same as Dave, but i pump mine, put in tub, put a bit more of the gelatine in the tub , to cover pellets, leave 10 mins or so, give them a squeeze to see if o.k.

            Drain off on maggot riddle, put in clean bait tub, and put in fridge, job done, and if you dont use them all .when you come home put them in the freezer, you will get another session out of them.

            All the best steve.

                Mine are for feed pellets Stevie.
                I honestly think you get more bites on softened feed pellets than you do on expanders. My reasoning for this is. That you don't feed expanders but you DO feed feed pellets and they look washed out when prepared this way so the fish think they have been on the bottom for a while and are safe to eat.
                Prepare a coffee mug of feed pellets my way or the other lads ways and try it mate, you will also save a fortune on expensive expanders.

                  Hi Steve.

                  Van den eynde R.S Elite, or Xpanda by Bait tech, you will find steve, you can only use them one time after freezing them, and when you chuck um, make sure it is outside in the bid, dont do what i did, and put them in a bin bag in the kitchen, it stank to high heaven, my mrs had to give me a slap.

                  All the best steve.

                      Cheers Steve. Yeah I imagine the smell of old pellets didn't go down too well! Lol!

                      I always pump my expanders the night before a match and put them in the fridge in a bag. A few times my wife has walked in and caught a whiff of the pellets when the bags been open - she's gone mental every time!

                        Hi Steve.

                        They don't smell pellet like, when left for 3 or 4 days, smell more like vomit, really do have a rancid smell.

                        All the best steve.

                          I used to just soak skettings with water and use them as hooks, but nowadays it depends on the skettings batch of pellets, so work and some don't. Might been worth a try.

                          Regards Steve

                            How do you prepare a feed pellet for the hook?

                              Required amount of Skettings feed pellet in bait box, just fill with water and just above the feed pellet, 15/20 mins later drain water off and place pellet in air tight bag and place in the fridge. As i said it depends on the sketting batch, sometimes it works and sometimes it don't. There is no consistency with sketting pellets.
