EX­PLOD­ING GROUND­BAIT

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

5 ROACH and skim­mers can of­ten be caught on the drop us­ing a lightly-weighted cage feeder, but if you want your ground­bait to re­ally ex­plode in a cloud of par­ti­cles you must mix it re­ally dry. The ground­bait should just hold to­gether when pinched into the feeder. About a third will empty as the feeder lands, another third is forced out as the feeder sinks and the rest forms a cloud on the bot­tom.

Use a mix con­tain­ing lots of ac­tive par­ti­cles, such as ground hemp.
