Are sticky baits krill any good

None of the krill baits use high percentages as krill meal becomes buoyant after boiling so the baits would float buddy.

Agreed. Back when I used to make my own bait I used Krill in the basemix at a rate of 1kg in 12kg of dry mix. I accidentally doubled the amount when mixing and the whole lot floated!🤣

I've used Sticky's Krill to good effect in the past, but if you want the best "loaded" Krill bait, take a look at Northern Baits offerings. 

They have the maximum Krill added that will avoid the dreaded floaters!!

A bit cheaper than Sticky's and trust me................. they are good.

Delivery is spot on, I have never had their bait turn up in less than "perfect" condition. 

Would recommend 100%

The buoyancy in krill meal generally depends on how much shrimp meal its been cut with, I have seen baits that are pushing towards 20% with the right quality meal, in a commercial bait I doubt there is any more than 5% in there, like Pete Springate I currently use it at 10% in my current mix.

What's percentage is the krill content in these baits as getting good krill these days is expensive 

They do a dedicated Krill liquid too, but hard to know the actual krill content of this , too.... But I dare say their krill bait will have some in it... One way of upping the krill content without the buoyancy issues.

I've used the krill wafters and krill pellets.

The wafters have done me quite well on waters with decent visibility, on waters with low visibility, I always feel more confident with some sort of visual aid. I know fish have amazing smell, but I try to cater to sight/smell to entice a bite, even if it's curiosity.

The pellets are amazing.

I was feeding a school of rudd with the rods out, the lake was crystal clear and had a layer of blanket weed on the bottom, so any pellets not mopped up by Rudd just sank into them. I watched two low double figure carp home in on the area where these pellets were and mop the lot up, digging into it. thinking it was a one off, I did it again - same lake... watched exactly the same thing happen. Not saying this is a wonder bait or some sort of miracle, but it obviously does something if i've done that and seen it happen twice.
