It's not just your hookbaits that can be boosted, says Ian Hirst
When fishing short sessions I love to provide the fish with something packed with attraction to get a quick bite.
This is far better than putting out loads of bait in one spot and sitting there hoping you get a pick-up during the short time you're there.
Once you have located the fish, a great method to provide maximum attraction around your hookbait is to use a proven attractant in the form of a bait glug. I’m using the new Poloni glug and matching groundbait. Firstly, take your lead (ensure it’s bone dry) and dip it into the glug.
Then, place a small amount of groundbait in a bait tub and roll the glugged-up lead in it. Repeat this procedure with your hookbait and you’ll have an irresistible morsel which will leak attractors everywhere.
The groundbait in particular will create a fizzing effect after it slowly disperses from the lead and hookbait. Just what you need to draw in some quick bites on a short session!
