Do you love big bluegill?
I've had mild success using them on ice jigs during the hard water period. . It's been my feeling they work best as a secondary bait after getting the fish worked up with real stuff first . Not a real scientific study on my part though .
I have been using the maggots/asticots for 6 years All year long I think I have caught all kinds of fish using them Bass, carp ,and cats
I tie my own flies and tip with a maggot.If there is blue gill in the lake He is mine I have good luck with them
