Mark, give Paprika and Cayenne pepper mixed a try, caught lots of barbel with it.
Back in the eighties cubed meat struggled on a stretch of the Kennet I fished, so I bought
an apple corer ( still have and use) and caught loads of chub and barbel,then the others
who I fished with finally cottoned on, and their catches increased.

I chop a tin in half, cut the meat into roughly 5mm cubes then pop them into a small pop seal bag.

I mix about a table spoon of boiling water with a desert spoon or so of angel delight to make a sticky liquid, this goes into the bag, seal up and shake. I then drain most of the fluid off once the meat is coated. I then add a heaped table spoon of my dry groundait, a little bit of powdered red dye and thens shake and leave over night. I use Van Den Eyde bream additive or super crack so it makes for a sweet meat, I've had loads of bream/rudd on this.

Mark two questions first any update have you tried it yet and two, after freezing meat baits myself last year you may remember i had the problem of the baits not sinking, after checking on the internet many said that many meat baits will float after freezing an issue if you intend to throw a few hook samples in as attraction, my question is did you find that to be the case or do your baits sink

regards

Tried it once but have been concentrating on my paste baits so never even got to the freezer stage.

I often freeze and reuse luncheon meat baits and not had floating issues, I have caught on the defrosted baits too :Hat:
