If you know anyone who has a Sensas catalogue, then there are some predator groundbaits listed. Trouble is finding a stockist in the UK.

I do one called `Pike n Predator`made by Whizzo.[;)]
It`s Herring and Sardine flavoured and quite oily.
Now you know who makes it you should be able to get hold of it.[:D]

Alternativly you can use a maggot feeder instead of a lead weight and fill it with mashed up pieces f fish such as mackerel and other oily fish. The oil content and blood will leave a slick in the water an the pike will home in.
Hope this helps

I do as Percher suggests, mash my own, sardine and herring are both oily and a lot easier to mash than mackeral but they'll all do the job. Mixed with either herring oil or mackeral oil they can be mixed with crumb and then you have your own 'rubby-dubby'

And of course a big welcome.......

Had a look in the 2003 Sensas catalogue today & they only list two this year. One for Perch & "Carnassix" (ref.00242/20) for Pike.
Whizzo stuff is damn' good, so speak to Tiny!

HI, Supreme Pikeing, My last visit to the Thames in February for Pike had Perch, Pike, and Brownies attacking the feed fish in feeding frenzies that I've only ever dreamt about.. Your question was to use silver fish as an attractant and would the pike follow them, YES.!! Take 2lb of SPRATS, zap 'em in blender to a grey mush. Bag of white crumb in a big mixing bowl, small bottle of SMELT OIL,kitchen foil, container to put finished balls in. METHOD...... mix the smelt oil and crumb together, take egg cup size balls of minced sprat and roll in crumb mix to coat them all over, wrap balls individually in kitchen foil and freeze untill needed......Drop a ball into a likely looking spot where you are going to put a livebait/deadbait and watch !! This works because the oil in the crumb makes the crumb rise to the surface, bleak, roach etc feed on the crumb Perch come along underneath as do the Pike to the smell, and the trout were taking what they could. When the big perch struck it was like watching synchronised swimming. Hope this gives you some ideas.!! By the way ask permission to use the blender etc. 'cos it's messy and it will stink the kitchen out...

catch you later, tight lines, dave....
