Mix the perfect groundbait

Believe it or not it is possible to make a complete mess of mixing groundbait. This short article gives some common sense tips to get perfect results.

When mixing groundbait always be sure to add all dry ingredients first i.e.: maggots, pellets, sweetcorn casters etc. secondly always add the water to the groundbait mix along with any additive you wish to use. Never do it the other way round, as it will become a big stodgy mess. Don’t forget that you can also use the liquid that surrounds the sweencorn, or the water in which your hempseed is cooked to give the groundbait extra sweetness, taste and flavouring. For absolutely perfect results you can pass the dampened groundbait through a riddle (coarse sieve) to remove any lumps and introduce some extra air to the mixture.
