View Full Version : Solar Up & Down

12-09-2005, 20:01
Has anyone tried this? On the website it looks very impressive, but at £10 for a little half filled bucket it looks expensive.

I'm guessing, but the up and down action will come from a mixture of standard groundbait mix and possibly dessicated coconut which floats, takes on water and sinks again. The fizzing, well that's got me stumped. I would imagine that it is using something like bicarbonate of soda or similar(in a very small dose).

Has anyone tried to make their own 'up & down' bait for funnel web stick mixes? I would be interested to hear your findings.

i have used the squid version of the up and down mix and i have caught a few times with the stuff it blends up nicely and you can use it in a funnel web bag seems to work for me atleast

Doesn't crushed hemp fizz, the groundbait stuff? It's worth putting some Horlics in your mix too, nice and cloudy http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif
