Why put Alka Seltzer into groundbait?
Alka Seltzer contains Aspirin, and I don't think fish should be fed drugs![V][V][V]

Im guessing for its fizzing abilities to help break the Groundbait up, doesnt sound too healthy tho.

Asprin is a natural product derived from tree bark, not a lot of people know that lol.
As regards fish ingesting drugs I agree with you 100%; which is why the water authorities should try and find a way to extricate the remains of the womens contraceptive pill from our waters. Male fish are turning into females and we actually get to drink this water eventually. No wonder there are a lot of men with low sperm counts and couples who are finding it hard to conceive.

Reckon Enigmas got the best idea myself, CJROSCOW you forgot "Moondust" beats the heck out of Kali I wonder how that is spelled? I know its not K A L I because thats a glasswort type plant, Refreshers how nice were they? And "Lovehearts" Fond memories of those sweets I still have all me own teeth too lol!
