Product Description


SonuBaits Hemp and Hali Crush,

One of the Supercrush range this is already proven to be one of the best groundbaits available to the modern angler. Hemp and Hali Crush is made using 95% Hemp and Halibut pellets crushed together. Sonubaits have kept large particles of bait in the mix to provide high food content for the fish and with the smaller particles creating the feeding zone and the larger particles to keep the fish grubbing around for the food content the fish stay in the feeding area for longer.

This is such a versatile mix it can be used as a method mix, stick mix, feeder mix, spodded or just balled in to create a bed of particles.

My favourite way of using it is to mix it very wet and mould it round a lead when fishing on the River Severn for Barbel, it would be fair to say that the majority of my fish come to this tactic. (Ian Day, Sonubaits)

I often feed a spot down the edge with Hemp and Hali Crush which I come back to in the last hour of a match, this is where I generally pick up the bigger fish from. (Lee Edwards, Welsh International)

Hemp and Hali Crush is perfect for feeding in clear rivers where you can watch and wait for barbel to come, they are drawn towards it and you can see the bottom being ripped up as they seek out all the particles of food (Alan Stagg, Specimen Hunter)

Hemp and Hali Crush is perfect for creating a stick mix.

The principles behind a stick mix. They were designed to create an area of feed which would pull fish in, with added bonuses of disguising the hair rig and keeping it tangle and debris free.

Because 95% of Hemp and Hali Crush is made from Hemp and Halibut pellets the mix is rich in oils and feed particles. The oil from the ground hemp is very light and so will begin to come off the mix quickly and the oil from the Halibut pellet is a heavier fish oil and so will come off more slowly so providing a constant and prolonged stream of oils which fish will naturally home in on. It will even pull fish from different levels in the water because as the oil comes up in the water fish will follow it to the source.

The variation of feed particle size and quality will entice the fish to feed and take as much of the bait as it can.

Stick mixes can be made to different lengths depending on what presentation you are hoping to achieve and how much bait you wish to put in.

Mixing a stick mix. Sticks can be made and used at the bank by adding water to Hemp and Hali Crush until it binds easily.

We advise to use some Sonubaits Tuna Dip in the mix for extra attraction and will add this at the same stage as the water. For a kilo of Hemp and Hali Crush add 300ml of water and a good glug of the Tuna Dip. This will create a mix which is damp enough to compress but not too damp so it melts the PVA stocking. Leave this overnight as it enhances the smell as the mix absorbs the water its particles will begin to break down and therefore they will smell more. Also because the particles absorb the water they become fluffier which is much more appealing on the lake bed as they will come up in the water column much easier. It is also easier to compress the stick mix if it has been mixed the night before as the particles become softer.

Tie up 20 or 30 sticks so they are ready to go and then you can spend more time watching the water, knowing that if you see a fish show you can thread one on the hooklink and cast to the fish which more often than not results in a fairly instant take.

The compression. For this you can use a Korum narrow PVA dispenser, and scoop up the mix till the tube is full. Then place your hand underneath the stocking and compress the mix with the compression stick until the mix cannot be compressed any more. Then push the mix out of the tube and tie an overhand knot as near to the end of the stick as possible. If you always fill the tube to the same height then the sticks produced will be the same length which makes them more consistent for casting.

This is important for a couple of reasons, it is so much easier to cast when the weight if the stick is compressed into a small area and also when you have threaded your hooklink through the stick it gives much better presentation.

To thread your hooklink through take a long gate latch needle, push it through the stick get the loop of the rig and pull it back through and clip it to your swivel. Push the hook back into the stocking so the eye and the point are buried as this will reduce any potential tangles.

Because the point of the hook is masked the stick can be cast to debris filled lakes and the presentation will be fine. Once the hooklink settles the PVA will dissolve and the Hemp and Hali crush will be left exactly where your hook bait is and disguise you hooklink. Because the mix has been compressed it will expand in the water so creating the perfect way in which to present a small offering around your hookbait.

This has proved an awesome tactic and stood the test of time on many different waters.
