The best groundbaits for margin fishing

It’s the perfect time for a big catch down the edge. Dan Webb picks out the groundbaits which could help you…

Sonubaits Chunky Fish

What’s in the bag?

Real chunks of dehydrated fish mixed with a blend of quality fishmeals and a selection of high-protein ground pellets.

Why we love it:

A proper stinky mix of the rawest kind of fishmeal possible. Big and hungry specimen fish absolutely love it, especially in the warmest water in the height of summer.

Price: £7.99 for 2kg, www.sonubaits.com
