Has anyone ever made there own groundbait and was it successful when they used it, if so what did you use. also what method did you use to make your groundbait and what did you add to your mix. and am i right in thinking that darker groundbaits are better for smaller fish as they feel vunrable out of there cover and predatory fish like pike or perch can't see them , but a lighter coloured groundbait for bigger fish. any advice you be gratefully recieved thanks

my favourite is bread crumb and hemp.
get a lot of bread crump, and mix in the hemp, leave it for a day atleast coz all the hemp juices soak into the bread crumb.
it stinks to high heaven, but i find the carp like it.

Steve,

I would opt for a contrasting colour of groundbait to the bottom of the area where I am fishing. This is especially true if using home-mades as they will not contain as many additives and attractors as continentals.

Hope this helps.

thanks Alan and Peter for both you comments, I searched on google last night for the same question on how to make your own groundbait. found a page on there that said, to put the bread in a hot oven but don't let it burn just to dry it out and then you can grind it up either by hand or a blender. any idea what to add for additives or attractors

Molasses is worth a look mate, about 4quid for a gallon from an animal feed shop.

Micro pellet, fish meal, vitalin and theres loads of different stuff such as bird seed, vanilla, various meals etc for you to try from here.

The P&P isn't too bad either if you buy a fair bit at once and their service has always been good.
