Pop up or bottom bait? The best of both worlds Posted by ,

Nowadays, anglers mostly use pop ups to balance a presentation. The ever so famous snowman has become the fashionable set up. As there are lots of contradictions out there, I am going to try and give you a different point of view on what a more or less dense bait can bring to our fishing. 'Bruno Meduo'

Tip 1

In order To create balanced hookbaits from a bottom bait you will need the following tools: 1 drill, scissors and a cutter, a standard bottom bait and a cork or foam stick.

Tip 2

To achieve a balanced bait using a pop up boilie or a dumbell you will need the following tackle: Dumbells or pop ups, a shot, a drill, N-trap braid and Kaptor wide Gape hooks.

Try these balanced bait tactics and you will love it. I am convinced and keep using them.
