Molasses is a great groundbait ingredient for sweet toothed bream. It ties in particularly well with baits like sweetcorn and fruit flavoured pellets or boilies. Some groundbait mixes contain molasses in dry form, while it’s also available as a thick treacly liquid additive. In the latter form be careful to add the molasses to water as you mix the groundbait, because pouring it on neat makes for a very sticky concoction!
