Developed by Des Shipp for catching F1’s and commercial carp F1 has proven to be a revolution in modern fishmeal based groundbaits. It has also proven to be very successful with skimmers too.
Since its release it has been the groundbait of choice by many top anglers and proved devastating in many matches at many different venues. By adding our unique blend of sweet attraction to a blend of fishmeals and crushed pellets we have created a groundbait which starts catching from the whistle and with prolonged holding power ensure the fish stay in your swim.
Sonubaits lead the way by being the first to introduce a sweet fishmeal groundbait designed for F1’s and skimmers. The original and best.
It is easy to mix and binds well to a method feeder and breaks down quickly, this is all down to the ingredients used. The fine fishmeal particles create an inactive mix when dampened which is perfect for a rapid breakdown of feed around the hook. It can also be balled, or cupped in as slop.
F1 Original groundbait is part of a bigger range including hookbaits, feed pellets, pastes and liquids which can all be used by themselves or in conjunction with other baits.
Des Shipp (England International) says “If your match is going to be won with big weights of skimmers and F1’s on the pole then I will mix up a bag of F1 Groundbait as soon as I get to my peg.”
F1 Groundbait is simple to mix. Empty the 2kg bag of groundbait into a round mixing bucket, fill a 2 pint maggot tub with water, pour this onto the groundbait and mix thoroughly, then allow it to rest for 30 minutes, during this time the water will be absorbed into the groundbait. Then for best results; to remove any lumps and create an even consistency, pass the groundbait through a riddle and it is ready to use.
When fishing sun and wind may dry the groundbait out a little, to combat this you can cover the mixed groundbait with a damp towel or if it does dry out just add a little more water and mix again.
