Bait suggestion: Maggots
« on: September 28, 2011, 10:07:51 am »
Found this on the the internet after I saw an advert in th Bankangler for maggots. These guys sell them for R60  for a 1lt container. I know in the UK and other places these are verry popular as bait for carp and other species and I am sure in South Africa we can find some use for them.

Instructions
Things You'll Need

    1 lb meat scraps
    Small plastic container
    Tall plastic container
    Olive oil
    Plastic wrap
    Plastic container with lid
    Spatula or spoon

    How to Grow Maggots
        1

        Acquire some leftover meat such as chicken or beef parts. Flies, which lay the eggs to produce maggots, are more attracted to meat than any other foods and will lay up to 300 eggs into their food sources.
        2

        Place the meat scraps inside a plastic container. Add just enough water to keep the meat moist. Seal the container with plastic wrap, but poke several holes in them in order to allow flies entry and exit ways. Place the container outside, preferably near trash cans. Dark places are also a good place to encourage maggot breeding.
        3

        Check the container in three days to see if maggots are forming. If so, transfer the maggots and container into a taller container, still keeping it outside. Rub olive oil on the inner top of the container's circumference to help keep crawling maggots inside it. Reseal with clear plastic, using much smaller holes to keep the flies out but air circulating in.
        4

        Use a spoon or spatula to scrape the maggots into the plastic container with a lid. Close and seal the container tightly and poke pin-sized holes in it. You can now transport the maggots to wherever you need them.


Just be carefulll as these things can grow exponentially and before you know it you have a huge fly problem! Remember to was you hands after handling them!

How long does a maggot stay a "magot" before it transfoms into a fly?

They should last about 10 days.

It would be nice if some of us could try it and give feedback... Any volunteers?

They are been used in the pole fishing. Very good bait indeed.
