What is Groundbait?
Groundbait is a finely crushed fishing bait mixture which is often made up of fishmeal and mixed with a liquid such as water to create a pliable substance, and is a popular choice for anglers who like feeder fishing.
Groundbait allows you to create different combinations of mix that can be used for different purposes when fishing, depending on the amount of water and additional ingredients that are mixed in.
Different Colours and Uses of Groundbait
Ground bait is available in a range of colours, however, the most popular colours include brown, black and red. This is because if you’re fishing in clearer waters the darker colours don’t reflect light particles and therefore smaller fish may feel more confident feeding from the mix without the worry of being spotted by a potential predator. Additionally, red groundbait works well in cloudier waters and is a popular option for carp fishing.
Brown groundbait is ideal for dyeing and offers a great way to improve your chances of getting a catch. Additionally, by adding extra elements to your groundbait mix you can dramatically differ the mix and change the reaction that it creates in the water and the reaction you get from the fish.
For example, hempseed is an extremely popular groundbait addition. When mixed with groundbait mix, hempseed produces an active groundbait blend which will become oily and fizzing when introduced to the water, creating movement in the groundbait mix, as well as producing an attractive taste for fish.
A popular groundbait amongst anglers is Sensas Groundbait. Here at Bristol Angling we stock a large variety of Sensas fishing groundbait. Simply choose Sensas on the left hand menu under manufacturer.
Why Use Groundbait When Fishing?
There are several benefits to using groundbait when fishing. Firstly, groundbait attracts fish into your area and increases your chance of a catch. Additionally, it gives fish the confidence to feed when they may not have as the groundbait creates clouds in the water, hiding the fish from predators. Lastly, groundbait is a great way to get your feed to the bottom of the bed, making it easier to fish.
