Maggots and Casters
Most fish will take maggots including bream, roach, barbel, chub, tench and carp. The Maggot is one of the most popular bait for coarse fishing.
We sell white, red and mixed red/white fishing maggots. Using both white and red maggot bait is a sure way to catch fish. Our maggots are fresh, clean and very lively and do not smell!
Before dispatch all sawdust is sieved off and then they are measured, the sawdust is added back and they are packed to protect them during transit, during warm weather this may well be in insulated packaging ensuring they arrive in the best possible condition, see our Feefo feedback.
Caster maggots are good quality and allowed to start to turn naturally, we then offer them for sale at the point of turning, the warming up they experience in travelling is enough to start the process of castering, on arrival keep them warm and the process will continue giving you fresh casters within a few hours.
We welcome personal callers to our premises in Essex, significant discounts can be had particularly if you are buying larger quantities and several different products
Frozen or dead maggots are often used for laying down on the river or lake bed, particularly where Carp are the target, being dead they do not burrow down into the silt. They can also be used for adding into ground bait mixes.
These are NOT the "end of line" they are good, clean and riddled maggots just like all our others offered for sale, they are just frozen and offered in larger quantities. They are sent out in insulated boxes, mixed with sawdust to stop them sticking together (don't worry, the sawdust is not part of the measurement!) They are sent by carrier to get the speediest delivery, the exception to this will be Highlands, Islands and N.I. where they will be sent by Royal Mail.
We cannot guarantee they will arrive frozen, on arrival they must be refrozen straight away, if not, they will deteriorate, if this should happen they are still very good for laying down on the river/lake bed or adding into ground bait mixes.
Casters are good, clean maggots that have been allowed to continue the process of pupating naturally, these are fresh and have not been vacuum packed and have no preservatives added - better for the water and tastier to the fish!
PLEASE NOTE, there may be a delay or so in dispatch if we are low on stock and though not vacuum packed they will be in an airless container during transit, they must be opened and allowed to "breathe" on arrival.
