I think this reply may be a bit late but here go's
Yes the pellet is working it is up in the water @ 9ms 12-18'' deep.
feed 4m hard pellet,with 4m soft pellet on the hook.
Also on the inside, keep feeding small amounts and give it 1 1/2 - 2hrs before trying.
They are fishing right over by feeding micros with soft pellet or corn on the hook.
You must use brders own feed pellets but can use your own hookers.
Jeff sells 4m and micro feed pellets @ 1 a bag,and 4m soft hook pellets @ 40p for a small bag.These are excellent and are what the fish are used to.
Caster is working very well up in the water for carp and big ide and on the deck,but you can be pesterd by bits.
If you do get pesterd by them use the pellet.
