This is something that i have puzzled over for a very long time and nobody has as yet convinced me to think differently. and that is;; the recognised method of hooking a maggot is through one end and not to pierce the skin and yet when it comes to worms we chop them into pieces to let the juices flow out, the same could be done with the maggots and i have tried it with success,..... half a maggot. whats the difference ? the puzzling bit is why do anglers keep persisting in hooking maggots through the end....Now for something different. It is not a very pleasant task, but, if you can put up with it..... liquidize plenty of maggots/casters together or separately.. to use as an additive in the ground bait..... it works very well.... you will need plenty of the liquid.. the ground bait is only used for presentation i fish at 10 meters and cup in the bait, not the liquid on its own or it will just cloud the swim or wash away. the results are good. best used in shallower water about 6/8ft. Has anybody else tried it ?. i reiterate, it is an unpleasant task best to look the other way, laugh.
