Bait Bomb - Gardner Tackle
The Bait Bomb tool is a clever device that allows you to form compressed ground-bait or scalded pellet sticks without using PVA or needing a method feeder.
A very clever device for moulding ground-bait mixes into a solid, castable form. Rather like a method feeder without the feeder!
Moulds excellent groundbait 'cake' for any coarse fish, small or large, so useful for the match angler, pleasure angler and specimen hunter as well the Carp 'methodist'.
The formed ground-bait/pellet Bait Bomb has a tapered cavity and slot so that it can be slotted on and then slid down the line so it sits on the lead, or carefully threaded onto the hooklink if your fishing close in. Alternatively, the Bait Bomb can be used as a casting weight with a free lined bait by simply sliding it down the hooklink onto the hook.
For the best results we recommend that you use a strong binding method mix. Alternatively a proprietary shop bought ground-bait mix may be used with the additional binders, e.g. flour at a 1 ounce per 8 of groundbait. Extra flour can be added to mix to slow break down time or aid casting.
Pre-formed Bait Bombs may be microwaved, 6 at a time for 1-2 minutes at full power and stored in an airtight container for months ready to go.
***WARNING – THIS IS NOT WIFE FRIENDLY AS MOST MIXES STINK!!***
As an alternative to microwaving dry naturally overnight or whilst fishing.
