Hi Terry

The basis of most groundbait mixtures is stale bread, prepared by breaking it up or mincing and then soaking it in water for an hour two. When soaked drain it as much as possible and make into a smooth paste. This can be made into small balls which can be throwing into the swim. Numerous ingredients can be added to the basic mix. Fish oils, meat, sweetcorn (blended), nuts anything basically.

Personally, i dont make homemade groundbait anymore as its quite cheap to buy.

i was watching a bloke fishing a carp pool in shropshire a few years ago. its a relatively easy venue that i know well but really large bags of carp are not usual. i asked the guy what he was using and it was just meat over groundbait. his secret seemed to be the groundbait which was purely liquidised biscuits. he worked in a biscuit factory all his life and had been using this method and nothing else for years, even when match fishing. it was a fish a chuck.

makes sense. lots of grains in biscuits. not much in the way of food tho once its ground down to fill them up. i bet he just used the broken bits they would throw out so maybe some custard creams and alike went in, bit of vannilla and what not. would make an interesting alternative to brown crumb. defo something im going to ponder.
