Spotted Fin – Match
We seem to be doing so many qualifying posts recently, this time Craig Edmunds has smashed todays Golden Reel Angling Qualifier at the Glebe!
He put 179lb on the scales from peg 105 to secure his place in the £50,000 final at Larford Lakes.
The GO2 100% Milled Betaine is one of our best selling groundbaits, but it also makes an amazing paste!
Simply add it to water (around a 1:1 ratio works great) and mix it well until you get it to a soup like consistency. At this point you’re going to think, what do Spotted Fin know, i’ve just ruined my bag of groundbait!
At this point, leave it for 15 minutes, write us an angry email saying how we haven’t got a clue what we are on about. After a quarter of an hour, as if by magic it has turned into the perfect paste. Mould a lump around your hook and start bagging…

We’re hearing that our own Phil Canning has only gone and won the Guru Festival at White Acres!
#TeamFin absolutely smashing it down in Cornwall!
It’s set to be a scorcher this weekend! So the ideal time to brush up on your ‘mugging’ skills.
We caught up with Dan White to find out his top tips… Check it out here – www.spottedfin.com/a-mugging-masterclass
Hopefully be a few caught shallow this weekend!
Packed with fish attracting oils and proteins, made from, as the name suggests, 100% Milled Betaine Pellets, this is a great groundbait now the weather is warming up.
Brilliant used on it’s own or in conjunction with other GO2 groundbaits in the range… It also makes a damn fine paste too, if you’re into that sort of thing 😁
Pastel Pink has been the colour of choice for speci carp anglers for a number of years, so we had to introduce it into our match range. With our distinctive Pink Pepper Squid flavour profile the carp go mad for it (bream too!).
One of the new additions to our super popular GO2 Bait Sauces is the ‘Classic Corn’ and rather unsurprisingly it works brilliantly alongside the golden grains.
With an awesome popcorny aroma, this is perfect for smothering over your corn to give it that extra boost of attraction.
It works equally brilliantly used on expanders, pellets and in groundbait… basically cover anything in it and you’ll get more bites!
Packed with the same carp attractors and stimulants as the boilies, our Catalyst pellets are fast gaining a cult following on carp dominated southern match waters.
Perfect for when you want your pellets to stand out from the crowd…
With a bit of prep, you can make your pellets not only more attractive, but also last a lot longer! Jamie Hughes explains.
Following on from the success of the GO2 range of groundbaits, we’ve listened to customer feedback and have introduced two brand new ‘all-round’ mixes to the range. By carefully selecting ingredients used in the mix we have managed to keep the price down so you can get a 2kg bag for just £6.99. So wether you are pleasure fishing, piling in bait down the edge or fishing a huge reservoir for silvers where large beds of bait are needed, these are a great alternative to the awesome GO2 range.
GO2 Pellet Oil is the ideal additive to have in your bag now the water temperatures are rising.
Glaze your feed pellets to ensure they all sink consistently or glug your hookbaits to help slow the breakdown and pack them full of added attraction.
GO2 Pellet Oil is a unique blend of a number of fish oils, we have then added a number of different stimulants and feed attractors which are found in our famous Catalyst boilies.
We all know how devastating hemp can be, but preparing it can be a right pain, then after that effort you end up chucking most of it away…
Our ‘Natural Hemp’ is a shelf life product meaning it can last for months once opened meaning zero wastage!
Supplied in a resealable pouch it means you can always have it on hand when needed.
Aside from the fact it is convenient, it’s also some of the finest seeds we’ve seen, proper sized grains which are perfect for hooking.
Really interesting day on the bank with Jamie Hughes talking all things feeder fishing. He’s shown us some awesome little edges and tweaks which will catch you more fish!
Keep an eye out on our YouTube Channel for the the next ‘Bait Hacks’ coming soon…
With the weather supposedly warming up, it’s time to start thinking about bringing oils back into your fishing.
Our GO2 Pellet Oil is far from standard!
It is a unique blend of natural fish oils, then we have included a number of the same attractors and stimulants used in our Catalyst boilies giving it a unique subtle nutty smell which fish go mad for.
Whether you are using it on your feed pellets to ensure they all sink consistently or pimping up some hookbaits for on the bomb or wag, it is sure to get you that extra couple of percent!
Our GO2 Liquid Dyes are super simple to use, just add a capful to a tin of cubed meat*, shake around in a bag to make sure it’s all covered and give it 15 minutes to absorb.
Available in both Liquid Yellow and Red, they are ‘unflavoured’ so can easily be used in-conjunction with other flavours without tainting them, but they still have a few special fish feeding stimulants in there
Dan White gave us a masterclass at Todber Manor Fisheries showing how he has been using dyed meat to great effect… Even during the winter!

Simon Willsmore has been having some awesome bags of bream recently so we had to ask him the details of the mix!
“I’ve been doing really well on this mix at Albans , catching 83lb of all skimmers on the last open! Equally though this mix works great on any venue which gets carp fished and sees a lot of potent, high protein baits, Bough Beech being a prime example.
I mix equal parts Sweet and Carp Super Blend and finish it with a good dollop of Catalyst liquid. Catalyst is from the carp side of Spotted Fin, a nice sweet liquid packed full of active enzymes, it really seems to give the mix a boost when the bream are used to seeing baits like this.
I put this through the feeder adding chopped worm, caster and pinkies and vary the hookbaits depending on the day”
Something a bit different with our new Method Ready Pellets… Do you like to try something new or stick with the tried and tested?
A wild and windy day on the bank with Simon Willsmore but he still put an awesome bag of bream together. A mix of GO2 Sweet and Carp Super Blend did the damage!
Our own Simon Fry fished the Golden Rod qualifier at Larford today and he got the result he was looking for and a place in the £12,000 final!
We’ll let him take up the story…
“It was the final Golden Rod Qualifier at Larford Lakes today and I’ve drawn peg 28 on the match lake which is just off the end of the island and definitely one with a chance. The Qualifying Zone is the whole lake so only a win would do! I started about 3m off the end of the island building the peg upgradually, fishing a 24g hybrid feeder loaded with Larford Fishery Micros flavoured with SF Pink Pepper Squid Pellet Syrup. Hook bait was a Pink Pepper Squid 8mm Wafter, trimmed down to just pop up above a size 12 hook. After a slow start I put together a fantastic run of carp to 10lbs and odd F1’s to finish with 99-7. This was 3rd overall on the day, but most importantly won the Match Lake and earned that all important place in the Golden Rod Final.”
All our new ‘Method Ready Pellets’ are totally PVA friendly, so if you are looking for a presentation a little bit different to the norm then check them out!
With Spring just around the corner, Jamie gives us some of his top advice on pellet hookbaits and how he does it a little differently to most!
Another brand new launch at the Northern Angling Show this coming weekend is our ‘Method Ready Pellets’ which are available in three flavour/colour combos.
Lovingly prepared micros ready to wrap round a method, pot in on your pole line or even whack them out in a PVA bag.
They are a shelf life product meaning absolutely zero waste, just throw whatever you don’t use back in the bucket and save it for next time. We’ve even thrown in pack of matching wafters for you.
Supplied in a 2kg bucket – SRP £8.99

A big perch hitting the back of the net has to be one of the best sights in fishing?
This one falling to a prawn dyed with GO2 Liquid Red!
