mackeral, mashed up with a bit of bread, maybe add some fish oil and herring pellets. Mesh bags pegged down on the low tide mark can work but you gotta be able to cast to it consistantly!Or use a swim feeder, theres a couple of other topics on here along this line, have a look at the spodding topic.

This is the link to the spodding post mentioned.
It lists a few ways of getting groundbait out and what people use.
I have tried pva, it does work but on a strong tide it gets washed away quickly.

Put mackerel, bread or bran and fish oil in a liquidiser. Pour the resulting 'slurry' into a 4 pint plastic milk bottle and freeze. When you want to use it just punch a load of holes in the side of the bottle and put it in the water where you want it. By freezing it, it lasts longer, releasing more scent as it defrosts.

I admit that i bought a seabag groundbait mix ready made and i have to say that it actually works! just drop it over the side of a pier, rocks and as jh1tf1 said stake it out on the beach at low tide. i really didnt expect it to work but it did!

Have to say its the lazybag ground bait got me thinking about my own mix in the first place it is the price off the stuff just. Thats why iam looking a home made one.

was on a local mark were a mate used the sinking lazybag and i took a lovely bass 4 and half pound. and the best i have ever had on the mark were small flatties.

so i purchased a bag for myself and tried again and the amount off mullet it brought in was unreal took 4 in that session so think there something to it.

Post by essexkenny »

has anyone tried using a groundbait from the beach at all, and aswell as mackerel and fish oil etc, has it ever worked for anyone using rag and lug for their groundbait mix and letting it go 'off' to the pooint when it stinks????? :-/

Check out the link above It answers the question and gives a few other angles.

Try the onion sack method weight it down at low tide then cast to the float at high tide to catch the fish.

Never tried rotted rag or lug I usually freeze or salt mine.
Salted worm might work as it takes a while to rehydrate.

what about now i am not sure of the spelling i think they call it a rubby dubby bag filled with chopped up dead fish with added bread and fish oil
and stuff like that do you think that might work over the side of a pier or rocks

Another thing we used to `bulk up' our rubby dubby was cooked rice and then froze it into cannonballs to put in the onion sack.It worked very well and we caught lots of bream `ready stuffed' with rice !

i have tried catapaulting bits of squid near to a breakwater i was fishing up against i was on the right of it and the tide was running to the right ( so i was sheltered by the tide )
i caught 4 nice flatties but would i have caught them if i hadn't done that who knows
if you feel more confident with the groundbait go for it


my glass is always half empty

good luck
cheers steve
