Ball it in for silverfish success

Forget scrimping and scraping on bait for your winter session, match ace Mark Pollard reckons the more you give ‘em the better when it comes to putting together a bag of roach at speed.

To prove his point, the Fox Match/Dynamite Baits star took the AT cameras to the North Level Drain in the heart of the Fens for a forthcoming feature and getting through three kilos of groundbait in five hours, knocked out double figures of fish with ease.

“Winter time doesn’t necessarily mean minimal feed,” Marks says.

“In fact, it’s quite the opposite and success at this style of fishing revolves around using lots of the right groundbait.”
