I am heading off to Bloemhof dam soon and so I have been doing a lot of research on the fishing there. I came across a DVD where the angler was using big balls of fish meal as a hook bait and was catching really nice cats! I know the best root to go is a fish head there but dont always like killing too many for my enjoyment. This guy on the DVD was saying that the cats at Bloemhof often pic up your bom bait while fishing for carp.

This is why I am looking for an alternative bait.

Q. What base do you use with the fish meal? And if I had to use a ground bait base mixed with the fish meal it will eventually break up (thats what ground bait does)

The fish meal you buy is a base to boilies. I dont think you could just add water, mix and have a perfect hook bait???

 

Please any advice or your experiance using this technique...
