i mean obviously you couldnt string together a 100lb bag, but if the carp arent on the pellets/paste, you cant go wrong with maggots.

my mate who is sponsored by SBS uses maggots all the time to catch huge carp! Wacks them in his spod mix and uses the as a hook bait (maggot clip) and he has had 25lb+ carp on maggots. "Brilliant bait"

Yes you are completley right maggots catch alot of fish


ALOT OF FISH

so there would be loads and loads of diffrent species in your swim
witch then means you have not got one particular target

where as boilies you can only catch a couple on them

i am not saying maggot and a good bait i think they are a secondary bai if stuff is not going your way and you want to go home with a few catches

Yes I must agree with this one that you can't go wrong with the humble maggot.[:)][:)][:)][:)]
Fish can be hard to catch on other baits at times but they will always take a maggot IMO[;)]

alrite a pleasure angler who is going out to catch specifically may not use maggots but for some maggots can be the key to success

Fished the Leigh Sinton Annual Open Match today. Most people were fishing the pole with meat, paste, pellets, cheese etc.

I fished waggler up in the water with single red maggot and stuffed it. 66lb. Second place was 25lb.

You can't beat maggot.

I only take maggots in late winter/early spring. Half a pint to throw in the margins with an hour to go, often deadly.

Either take maggots or some bread with me, they both seem to work when other baits dont want to. Fished 1/2 whiite 1/2 red today, up in the water under a ltitle 0.05g maver dibber, no deeper than 18 inches on size 20 hook, most people apparently where struggling, but I kept bashing tiddlers and finished with 22lb.
