I wanted to get my GB to 100% for using PVA I was at 87.6% to start with and it cost me 300 - 400 silver to hit 100%.
The cheapest and best way to level your groundbait is to just buy the last base ( basic ) you unlocked, there is no need to add in additives or attractants, this will only make it a lot more expensive. Just use the base mix and discard it after each one, that's all I did and hit 100% in no time at all.
Question about PVA , how do others use PVA sticks, I use mine with a Basic bottom rig, would I get an extra benefit using it with a mesh feeder as well.
For example different mix in the PVA and a different mix in the Mesh but both mixes are based around the fish your targeting, I know its twice the expense but would there be any extra benefit.
PVA mix for sturgeon I found works pretty well.
Base : Rapeseeds Base : Rapeseeds
Additives : Casters , Chopped Worm , Dried Crustaceans , Zebra Mussel. Additives : Pellets , Chopped Worm , Dried Crustaceans , Zebra Mussel.
Attractant : Crayfish Attractant : Caviar Smell .
I have always made sure that Rapeseeds , Chopped Worm ,Dried Crustaceans and Zebra Mussel stays in the mix as I find these are a must when testing.
I have changed Pellets, Casters and about and tried things like Flaxseeds ( these worked too ).
Attractants I find work are the 2 above along with Crab and Mussel , Squid , Fish Oil and Salmon.
Post your best Bait mixes and PVA mixes so others can get an idea on what you use for targeting fish.
