Thought id give these leads a go for putting out ground bait, they weigh 4oz and i think they will be good for fishing on marks where theres not a lot of tide.

ill be using old bait put through a blender with ground bait mix pressed in to the spring with worm on my hooks i like the fact that there round so will roll along the beach in a small tide i know that a moving bait is better then a bait that is stuck in one position for bass

hi roy
they look like a good idea but wouldn't the ground bait come out mid cast? or would you use pva mesh like in carp fishing?
cheers ian

you may loose a bit off bait but you must keep the ground bait not to wet dont forget your not casting that that far out for bass and fresh water fishermen cast ground bait out as well the spring will hold the bait if you push it behind the spring

these look very interesting, I defo think they could work as ground baiters. maybe stuff them with fish bait and freeze them so the juices slowly release as they thaw in the water.

Looks interesting but I do wonder if the ground bait might be dissipated too quickly. Personally I use a 35mm film canister with a few small holes drilled and tied in immediately above the sinker. This seems to work quite well and it takes at least half an hour before all the mash is washed out.
