Here at Match Fishing we have been very impressed with what Spotted Fin has been up to – brilliant bait with quality that is second to none.
The Super Feeder Blend is an interesting groundbait. It is not a fishmeal but it’s also not a sweet groundbait, and to be honest it is hard to categorise it as even a sweet fishmeal blend! I guess it is easiest to say it’s taken the best bits of all of those groundbaits and mixed them together.
There is a fishmeal content in this blend. Some Pre-Digested fishmeal and Salmon Fry gives it that fishmeal hint – proven attractors for bream. Mix this groundbait up and you may notice a dash of green flecks, yep that’s the company’s famous Milled Green Betaine too, but not too much.
There is also bread in this mix, high-quality yellow breadcrumb that is expensive! There are lots of other niceties to give the mix a sweet edge, and a secret blend of other goodies that we couldn’t prise out of Spotted Fin makes up the rest of the mix.
It is probably wrong to call it sweet – it has a sweet aroma but a quick taste test (yes, I taste all of the baits!) reveals quite a bready flavour that is lovely and mellow.
How does it mix? Well I tried to ruin the groundbait – my staple test to see how easy a groundbait is to mix up. After a good flooding of water a paste-like texture was left. Leaving it to stand for 30 minutes and a push through a riddle and the mix was spot on. Lovely and fluffy with a bit of dampness to it.
A traditional mixing style left me with what I would consider a perfect feeder mix. It breaks down quickly and evenly and even when it is squeezed firmly into a feeder it still recovers and breaks down nicely.
If you are looking to target bream and skimmers on commercials or natural venues then this is well worth a try. It’s easy to use, has the right ingredients in it and better still it works!
Verdict: A range of ingredients combine to make an incredible, modern bream groundbait.
