Review: Bait-Tech Pro Natural Fine Lake Dark

Review: Bait-Tech Pro Natural Fine Lake Dark thumbnail

THIS Fine Lake Dark groundbait has been milled finer and made darker than the rest of the mixes in the Pro Natural Groundbait range.

Designed to attract species such as bream, roach, tench, barbel, chub and dace, it’s more of a silver-fish mix, for rivers and lakes.

Rich in coconut, molasses and hemp, it is a sweet mix, formulated to attract and hold fish. Coming with a super-fine texture, it binds incredibly well, enabling you to add maggots, casters, hemp and pellets, making it a perfect choice for feeder or float work.

Breaking down fast, you could also ball it in on a river, catapult it out on a natural lake, or trickle it in on a canal.

A versatile blend, it’s available in 1.5 kg bags.

Price: £4.49.

Bass Fishing: How To Catch Bass On Tough Days

Eat! Eat! Eat! Food is all that bass are thinking about in the Late Fall! These creatures know the cold season is coming and they waste no time filling their reserves with anything that passes in front of them. This time of year an angler can gain a ton of confidence in new lures by targeting bass that are anxious to feed. Need to learn how to catch bass on crankbaits, swimbait, jigs, etc? No problem! It all sounds wonderful until they shut down. All of a sudden you can’t get a bite, no one can, so what do you do now?

Today Tim breaks down his approach to catching bass that are shut down. Anyone can get a bite when the fish are chasing but knowing when its time to stop and adapt can be the difference between a great day and a frustrating outing. Knowing when to downsize to a dropshot, Neko rig, or other finesse bait is an art all its own. Tim explains the signs you need to keep an eye out for and follows it up with tackle recommendations.

Below is a breakdown of the tackle that Tim uses during tough conditions. When the fish turn negative, fish with confidence, knowing that you’ve adapted at the right time. The bass are still there and with a little persistence you can salvage your day on the water.
