Pole anglers have the advantage of being much more precise with their groundbaiting, using various sized cups or pots attached to the end of their poles to drop groundbait inch perfectly over where they are fishing. Cupping also allows groundbait to be fed in loose form, rather than a hard ball, which often fools ultra wary fish into feeding. Cupping in loose groundbait creates a very fine bed of feed that forces fish into grazing for longer periods.
