Tiger Fish is a mix developed by the Sonubaits team it is a blend of Tiger Nuts, pellets and fishmeals crushed into a groundbait for carp.
It’s a sweet-smelling mix that came about after various discussions and observations from specimen carp fishermen, who were all convinced about Tiger Nuts and their effectiveness.
As the Tiger Nuts are crushed it releases the natural sugars and oils which help the mix go sticky when mixed with water. This means it creates the perfect sticky mix for either the Method feeder or carrying extra particles and balling in. It also creates a great margin mix when cupped in loose, creating a fine carpet of crushed pellets and fishmeals along with tiny particles of crushed tigernuts which really gets fish grubbing around.
Tiger Fish groundbait is part of a bigger range including feed pellets, and liquid flavour which can all be used by themselves or in conjunction with other baits.
Michael Buckwalder (Irish International) says “This sticky nutty fishy mix is really effective in a number of different situations. Equally suited to fishing down the edge for carp on commercial fisheries or on the method in deeper water, and also on the feeder in Ireland on natural venues fishing with chopped worm for bags of skimmers and roach, it really is a true all round mix”
Tiger Fish is simple to mix. Empty the 2kg bag of groundbait into a round mixing bucket, add 1 1/2 pints of water to the groundbait and mix thoroughly, then allow it to rest for 30 minutes, during this time the water will be absorbed into the groundbait. Then for best results; to remove any lumps and create an even consistency, pass the groundbait through a riddle and it is ready to use.
When fishing sun and wind may dry the groundbait out a little, to combat this you can cover the mixed groundbait with a damp towel or if it does dry out just add a little more water and mix again.
