Bag ‘em Matchbaits reveals some groundbait tricks to help you catch more fish on natural venues…
A lot of natural venues have very clear water, and species such as roach and bream can be very wary. In these situations, a dark groundbait mix can be a big advantage as these wise fish can be very wary about moving over a light-coloured groundbait. This is because the dark backs of fish stand out over a light mix lying on the bottom, making them visible to predators above.
However, if you were to feed a dark mix, the dark backs of fish blend in with the groundbait, and fi sh are much more inclined to settle over the groundbait. The Natural Lake, Canal and River Dark Blend mix from Bag ‘em is ideal in clear water, and can be mixed with other groundbaits to darken off the colour too.
