Bait Box Smelt Deadbait
A must-have bait in every pike anglers cool box. Medium smelt are ideal for pike and zander.
These small estuarine fish have accounted for a huge number of pike and zander over the years and have several things in their favour:
Tough skin means they can be cast long distances and even used for wobbling and sink-and-draw style fishing. Unique 'cucumber-like' smell, that predators find irresistible
Pale colour stands out well and can be seen from distance, also perfect for dyeing with our Bait Dyes.
