first step is to feed sparingly while still feeding worms or whatever they like...
then they will begin to recognize you as 'the food guy'
then skip several days
then use a high quality sinking pellet (Sandwich likes Hikari massivore pellets)
the fish will be very excited about the moving/sinking thing that you dropped and they will usually at least hit it... if it tastes good, they will likely keep it....

That said, the frozen stuff will work if that's the route you want to go.

I do what DS15 does: soak pellets in frozen bloodworm or brine shrimp juice until they soften, then reduce the juice after the fish are eagerly accepting the juice-soaked pellets. This has worked for me with Enneacanthus sunfishes, which are generally pickier than Lepomis.
