Due to the fact that theres only 3 decent fish left in the north sea, i'm thinking about upping the anti through the use of ground bait, into the tyne harbour.

my initial idea is to use a cage (filed with mushy baits, mabe some frozen makerel or even some tinned fish) as a weight on the end of my rig using my carp rod. i presum this is how the pond chuckers do it.

my main issue is how to get it out to where my hooks are.

has anyoe used groundbait like this?

any sugestions or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

cheers

Graham

Hi Grayham mate, It is a problem getting ground-bait out to your hooks, The solution is to get your hook out to the groundbait.

The method I use is to fill an onion sack or similar at nearly low water making sure that at height water it is still within casting distance, using a large rock trap the sack underneath it so that you can cast to it virtually every time.

Dangling a similar sack over the back of a boat can also increase your catch dramatically
Cheers

cheers kieth.

i rekon that'll work a treat if i'm on the beach or up river a bit, cos of the way my mark exposes over low water, but i'm thinking of fishing into deeper low tide water.

hi gsm ive been thinking about this for a while now and seeing as it,s more the fact that we want a sent trail to atract the fish rather than the food it,s self ive come up with this idea .mashing up any old bait that i have left over rather than through it away .get a finger bandage and fill it up ,there about 3ft long .then cut it into about 3inch sections tie of the ends and then push trough the ends a small split ring .atach one end to the lead and the other onto the line .there you have it a bag full of sent trail being cast out with your hook baits
steve
ps i have not tried it yet but will in the next 2 to 3 weeks

i tried using a small pond chucking swimfeeder attatched to my weight, filled with liquified rotting old lug mixed with flour to thicken.
should be irresistable to mr or mrs dab
end result
naff all
i wont try it again, it made me feel sick everytime i had to refill it

Well i've found a couple of in line bait feeders at the back of the cupboard (must have got them in with a bundle of something) and have had a read up on how our fresh water cousins use them, so got a few ideas on what and how to use them, so its exeriment time tomorow...

well that was a cockup!! lol

i headed off down to shields with the bairn afer picking her up from school and did my usual running around. got to mams, made tea then sat down to sort some rigs for the morning... ... ...

cleaver cloggs, i left my 'experimental' stuff at home along with my good rod....
so the ground baiting will have to wait till next time.

however there was still a good days fishing to be had.... but i'll write that up in a seperate report.

You could try filling your feeders with some of the marine based groundbait mixes we use for carp along with some fish oils in the mix,should give a good scent trail without actually feeding your quarry,just leading them to your baited hooks.If you use essential oils in the mix dont put too much in as they are very very concentrated,Mick big grin big grin

i used to use a feeder wat i did was to use a soldering iron and soften the lead on my wieght and stick a feeder on the end of my lead then you can still use your grab wires and you still have the wieght for casting
