The Mainline Match Sweet Marine Groundbait comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.
Description: fishmeal groundbait.
Ingredients: a blend of fishmeals, crushed pellets, proteins, cereal, seeds and biscuits.
My verdict: there’s a lot of attraction in this groundbait. It’s not an out-and-out groundbait for commercial fisheries, as you can use it on natural venues, too, including canals and rivers, for attracting quality fish such as bream and skimmers.
Its dark colour should suit clear waters, and the mix of particles will hold fish in your swim for long periods of time.
The Mainline lads have told me that it has already attracted fish in winter and summer.
Present it quite dry in a cage feeder to draw fish down from above, or mix it quite damp to hold fish on the bottom.
Price: £6.99 for 2 kg.
