Found on most Pike anglers top five bait lists, sardines tend to produce the goods when all else fails! These very oily fish are frozen immediately to keep them in tip-top condition. Baitbox source only the best quality 6-7in sardines that are perfect for pike baits.
Sardines are quite a delicate bait and we recommend keeping them frozen until ready to cast out. The soft flesh breaks down quickly, but this adds to their appeal, releasing a trail of attraction in to the water that Pike find irresistible.
In recent seasons Sardines have accounted for some very big Zander, particularly from the Anglian Water Reservoirs, and a half-Sardine bait is now a top tactic on both Grafham and Rutland.
Because of their soft bodies, sardines are best fished hard on the lake bed on either ledger or float ledger tactics. Try using sardines whole with a Pike Pro twin treble size 6 trace.
