I've never understood the idea of using hatchery pellets for adult fish that have been to the ocean and back. It's a goofy idea. I would think you would want to use a bait fish scent for adult fish.donno said:The idea behind it was good but I didn't see a differance or improvement.
What's inside the bags is the food that is fed to the fish at the hachery. Soylent Green, LOL. I tried them and made some of my own and like I said I couldn't tell a differance. I do use some of the fish food in my shrimp bait though. Differant types will dissolve at a different rate. The pellets designed for fry are smaller and softer so they dissolve faster for digestion then the larger harder stuff made for the broodstock. The two major suppliers for our area are Bio-Oregon and Skrettings (Moore-Clark) if your looking to buy some to make your own 'scenters.'
.... For my 2 cents worth:I would think you would want to use a bait fish scent for adult fish.
