Sardines 3 pack
A very effective dead bait on many venues approximately 7 inches these oily sea fish have a strong scent and a lovely silver sheen. The only downside with sardines is that they are a very soft bait and so need to be used straight from frozen if possible.
Whatever they lack in toughness they more than make up for in pike-catching.
Sardines are around 7 inches in length, so are best used on a size 6 Twin Treble Trace. To help hold the hooks in place use a couple of wraps of Bait Elastic around the hooks and bait.
