Simple answer, yes, is it effective, yes.Hi everyone, just wondered if any of you had used a groundbait paste on a river for Bream as opposed to bread paste
I used to mix fish-meal or was it trout pellet (I cannot remember) with a raw egg to make a paste. It would be quite stiff and I think the egg was an added attractant; I got about a tennis ball sized lump of paste out of it. Caught most fish with it including bream on commercials but carp love it as well; how good it will be for river bream I do not know. I never tried an egg with breadcrumb or ground-bait but, if it mixes with an egg it might make a good bait for bream, I would try to add something sweet though, some jam maybe or molasses, bream love something sweet. I used to soak sweetcorn in jam and had my biggest bream on that.No reason why it wouldn't work. A good fishmeal would pull in the bream, as will a paste made from trout pellet paste.
