Groundbait mix the night before?

Recommended Posts

I carry groundbait dry and mix with Venice water for the same reason as b-bear.  In the same way if there are any molehills near the water I add some molehill soil to the mix .  Molehill soil smells quite strongly of earthworms - even I, a mere human, can detect it.

Using lake water also avoids the chlorine problem.  We grow a lot of fancy plants including orchids and they definitely dislike chlorine, so we have installed three water butts to catch rainwater.  If I ever mixed groundbait at home I would use rainwater.

I see the bloody spellchecker has stuck its nose in again. For Venice read venue.
