With the resurgence of silverfish fishing on natural venues and commercial fisheries over winter, we have decided that it is time to produce four new groundbaits specifically for silvers.
We have developed these groundbaits in conjunction with some of the best silverfish anglers in the UK including Des Shipp, Lee Kerry, Steve Saunders, Mick Vials, Michael Buchwalder & Will Freeman
We took a fresh look at the market and decided to produce four new groundbaits all of which could be mixed straight from the bag or mixed with the others in the range to tailor a groundbait for a specific day on a specific venue.
Being able to mix them with each other was of great importance to all of our anglers as natural venues change and therefore the groundbait needs to change to suit the conditions and the methods on the day.
In general to create a heavier mix for slower break down in deeper water use So Natural River to strengthen the mix, for a darker mix with less feed increase the amount of So Natural Black, for a more active, lighter mix increase the amount of So Natural Lake and for a mix which is sweeter with a higher food content increase the amount of So Natural Bream, the possibilities really are endless.
SO NATURAL LAKE
A very versatile groundbait this can be used on the pole or feeder. It is quite active especially when mixed on the dry side ensuring continuous action. Perfect for all silverfish in lakes. When freshly mixed the groundbait and its particles come out of the feeder easily creating a good bed of bait and with the inclusion of lots of hemp, coconut and coriander this is the perfect combination for roach and skimmers on natural lakes.
Lee Kerry says "So Natural Lake is one of the most versatile groundbaits I use, it is my first choice for fishing natural venues for skimmers, roach and hybrids. It is perfect for fishing up to about 6 foot deep, anything deeper and I tend to mix it with So Natural River and soil to make it heavier and bind more tightly."
So Natural Lake is simple to mix. Empty the 1kg bag of groundbait into a round mixing bucket, fill a 1-pint maggot tub with water, pour this onto the groundbait and mix thoroughly, then allow it to rest for 30 minutes, during this time the water will be absorbed into the groundbait. Then for best results; to remove any lumps and create an even consistency, pass the groundbait through a riddle and it is ready to use.
When fishing sun and wind may dry the groundbait out a little, to combat this you can cover the mixed groundbait with a damp towel or if it does dry out just add a little more water and mix again.
