Save Money on Maggots
Not used all the maggots you bought?
Add your unused maggots to some fresh sawdust or bran to get them dry, sieve so they are free from the sawdust or bran and pop them in the freezer. Take them on your next trip, they defrost very quickly, and use as loose feed, can also be used on the hook as fish still feed on them. They tend only to freeze once so discard if not all used.
