Whats the advantage of using deads over live?
Have you used them and have you ever noticed any difference.
This is both as a hookbait and in your groundbait.

Deads don't wriggle into the mud.

I have used them as feed and hookbait and have still caught. Basically its food to the fish whether dead or alive.

I use them a fair bit. Maybe I'm just tight but have had good results. They may not look as good as live ones but they don't bury themselves in the silt or break up your ground bait & I honestly don't think that the fish care.

Big fan of dead maggots, I've found that the lack of movement makes them less appealing to perch..... great when trying to target roach and chub on rivers.

A bead of dead maggs are awsome for carp in the margins, with meat corn or paste on the hook

after a maggot drowns in the water it dies so the fish think its safe to eat because they think becuase its dead its been in the water a while and its "safe"
