Pollen only pop up themselves due to a very large swim bladder. These fish spend most of there time at great depths 80ft or more, so when they are landed there bladders expand like a balloon. If you buy them in Vacum packed bags, all the air is extracted so they dont pop up any more, try to look for freeze dried and not vacum packed as they always float Smile

If you pour a small amount of sugar down their throats and then pop them back in the freezer, when you go to use them they will be mega mega bouyant.

the hiring of pollen sounds great to me steve but i am not paying if the pollen gets its self lost (when i wind in it has gone )
and i am not paying for weedy unfit pollen ( pike has won the battle and has it in it's jaws when i wind in.
and i am not paying for pollen that is chewed to bits when it comes back in.

but apart from them few things i think i will hire ONE off you ? Very Happy

Pollen aren't that great as far as baits go IMHO. Their only advantage seems to be the fact they're supposed to float. Seems a little pointless to me when popping up good baits like lamprey or mackerel is pretty straightforward.

There's many baits I'd have before I used pollen.
