BerleyBerley , Berley Gotta Use Berley
I always recommend using berley.
A combination of whatever you’re using as bait, breadcrumbs or chicken pellets.
Either dip them in one of the tuna oil/aniseed juice mixes or buy a pre-mixed berley pellet bag.
Don’t berley enough to take away from your bait.
Just enough to get the fish in. For this reason, a berley distributor is ideal as it slows down the feed distribution.
KG Whiting Bait – Add Attractant
In terms of attractants – my favourite remains Squidgy S Factor. I always carry a tube on me.
Rub some between your thumb and index finger. Smear it onto your bait or lure.
Cast out – and you’ll soon see why I swear by it. It rarely lets me down.
If you’ve ever seen aquarium fish going crazy, zooming around when there’s food in the tank at feeding time, this is kind of the effect S Factor gives you.
A feeding frenzy, according to the manufacturer. For once, the marketing department is not really exaggerating. I used it and have found it works, even, for fussy King George Whiting, extremely well.
In fact – the reason I recommend it is I’ve found it makes the difference, more often than not, between not even a nibble or bites – and actually catching fish.
As a bonus – snapper, flathead, bream, mullet and more seem to love it too!
