DARK GROUNDBAITS ARE BEST

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

10 ALL baits ap­pear a lot brighter un­der­wa­ter, es­pe­cially when viewed against the lakebed, so it pays to darken up your groundbaits, es­pe­cially if the wa­ter is clear.

Fish will tend to be a lit­tle un­set­tled over light-coloured groundbaits, so if I am fish­ing on the deck a dark mix is al­ways used.

Many pop­u­lar groundbaits are also avail­able in a black ver­sion, and these are the ones to go for at this time of year.

Even though they ap­pear black to us on the bank, drop a hand­ful in the mar­gins and you’ll no­tice that they soon lighten up to a more nat­u­ral shade that blends in with the bot­tom.
