A major part of the diet of pike and zander in most venues, it is no wonder that roach are such a popular bait with predator anglers. Baitbox freeze their roach immediately to keep them in super-fresh condition.
Naturally quite buoyant we recommend testing roach in the margins before casting out to ensure that they sink. If they float simply pierce the swimbladder with a baiting needle and squeeze out the air until the bait just sinks. A slow sinking presentation really is ideal and will ensure that the bait sits on top of any weed and is very easy for the pike to pick up.
Our roach zander packs contain roach in the 3-5inch range, ideal for targeting these smaller predators.

Roach can be used on all standard predator tactics, from float ledgering to drifting and trolling, roach are a great tough bait that stand up to casting well. For these small sized baits we recommend using our single treble size 8 traces for best results.
