Seeing as it works out at less than £1 per Kilo it should be worth a punt, even if you use it as a base to add to other mixes, or as part of a big pre-baiting campaign. (y)

From what I have been reading sweetened fishmeal ground bait is popular, so adding some ground custard creams/ginger nuts would add sugar, and some red dye would add to the appeal for certain species.

That has already been sweetened as it has betaine added.
Considering that it has fishmeal and betaine added and is free delivery that is a ridiculous price.

Shame they can't spell groundbait though.

it's a type of refined sugar taken from beet.
Good spot Lol and I am tempted to buy a bag myself at that price.
Fishmeal is getting a bit more expensive so that is a real bargain

Just ordered one, if nothing else it will bulk out edge mixes now the summer is coming.

It’s a steal at that price. They’re just down the road from me,might take a gander myself. A big pet food supplier so they’ve probably mixed it themselves.

I have used that groundbait before and it's decent stuff. (I usually add a little green Swimstim to it) (y). Copdock Mill pellets are good too, but what they call micro's are 3mm..not 2mm.

I've just ordered one, skint or not I'm not going to miss out, not when I found the damned thing :mad:

How is the two dogs? I saw the recipe but was unsure about fannying about with hotdog sausages.

They've got no dealers in Derbyshire and the one in South Yorkshire has shut permanently so it's a bugger to get hold of their other products.
