Many years ago i bought skippies up in the North Island and got them frozen freighted down here (Halls transport ?)and minced them. I added a bit of tuna oil which wasnt probably needed.

Be prepared for a mess LOL.

What fish are you thinking of using as a base for your berley ?

Hey mate

Thanks for the reply , I wasnít to sure really but have spoken to the local fish shop and he said I can come in and grab all the fish frames I want so possibly just a mixture minced up

But if Iím better to just have one type then I can do that

With frames i think you will need a grunty mincer ?
I would happily use frames and bits of skin andi would also add stale bread and lots of tuna oil as the fish you get maybe a non oily fish ? I can also remember someone saying adding a bit of sand in the mix gets a negative bouyancy but i have no experience of doing that.

I built a burly maker out of an old waste disposal unit.I kept the frames of all bait i had used, bait scraps, dragged the bait net whatever was caught went into it. Also added Tuna oil a few cans of cheap cat food (sardine based) & once minced up i would add a big bag of rolled oats. This soaks up all the juice & floats around nicely.
