 Try getting some waste from the fish and chip shop, called crackling, aside from that add a crunched up bag of potato chips. Need something floating on the surface.

 Pollard & oil but I also throw in a handfull of dry bread crumbs every now & again. Like the others have mentioned, Herring love floaties.

Rabbit pellets

 I use pollard, fish oil, rabbit pellets and water to suit consistency as these hold well together in water. This gives them something to go into a feeding frenzy.

Also great for skippy.

Blood and bone

Read in a Western Angler article a few years ago that adding a bit of blood and bone to your berley was dynamite on the hezzas

 I just use any left over fat

 I just use any left over fat from roasts or chops etc that I save up and mix with old rolls or bread. Some floats and some sinks, but always gets them around.

I leave my leftover mulies

Sun, 2017-09-17 08:34

I leave my leftover mulies out for a night then use my drill and paint stirer to mash them up and then add the leftover fat from IGA chooks, pollard and enough water to make it a cement like consitancy and vac pack it and freeze. Lets out of constant light stream of burley for a good 45 mins and the hezza go nuts for it.

It doesn't matter what the mix is just add some corn to it and the herring go mad over it on the surface.
