Hi the problem with groundbaiting is keeping it in the area your fishing, it basically only works on boats or piers etc, you can rig something up, even an old sock would do it, put a weight in, then your mish mash of fish heads or whatever, and attach to the trace line. Of course casting would be awkward, so its easier to drop it over the side of a boat or pier. I made a groundbaiting weight for boat fishing out of a bird feeder, it has a 1lb weight with cage attached, i fill it and lower it. :D Cheers..Mick

Hi guys dont know if this would be of any interest to you all.......................a weight with a ground bait / scent atractor cage attached.............not used it, so can't say how it performs but I think the concept looks interesting.

When ground baiting the main problem is being able to cast near it as the tide makes its way in. Failing this the fish would be attracted out of your casting area and so defeat the object.

Tried it a few years back and had a good bag or bass on that occassion, but it may have been in the right time at the right place etc etc.
Id opt for trying on areas you wont be walking back with the tide, or somwhere without a srtong current. Harbour/ pier or off rocks would be your best bet.

Read an article in a mag a while ago about groundbaiting.
What they did was, when the tide was well out on a long beach, buried a few macky in the sand out where they thought they would cast to. Then moved back up the beach and assume a comfortable position until the water came in again, and hey presto. Downside, could make a long day, or if you leave the mark after baiting you could come back to someone else thinking fish stocks are defo on the mend.

Does look to have potential, but would hate to loose one at that money.

a kinder egg with holes in works well,make sure you have a hole top and bottom pass a length of rig body through (60lb) with a genie/swivel at the ends ,so instead of clipping your weight to your rig add your feeder then your weight,you get your groundbait where you want and doesnt hinder casting

I've heard of people digging holes at the end of groynes at low tide then fishing the area on high this creates a fish holding area, think any kind of ground baiting at low would be best parcially berried
