I live up North in Marysville.
Does anyone know where I can find Maggots.

Not at Fred Meyers [sad]

Do pet stores sell it as pet food?

Nope.
They sell Mealy worms.
Freddy's use to have them all the time.
Guess not many people like to handle Maggots.
A couple on a hook with a Gulp egg will slaughter trout!!

It's summer time, well almost. Just set out a t-bone, the maggots will magically appear. [rolleyes]

Cut a pop bottle in 2/3-1/3. put some ground beef in the bottom. invert the top into the bottom w/out lid. Flies fly in lay the eggs couple days later they are baby maggots. In hot weather fishable maggots in a week or so. Cooler days take longer. After a few days with lots of flies in the bottle drop the lid in to block opening. Then your maggots will be about the same size at harvest.
I am a maggot farmer. :)

Thanks Guys,
I really don't want to be a Maggot Farmer.
I will just stick to my Gulp eggs.
They got me my limit today in 2 hours for some nice Bows on my now "Secret Lake"
Saw some nice Bows caught on worms under a bobber.
Got to witness a little 5 year old boy catch his first trout ever. AWESOME!!!!

Bodofish DON"T LOOK


















When your confident that they help you catch fish you will do what you have to. It is all done so that I have a supply of maggots!!! [thumbsup]
Stores run out or they sell dead ones. :-({|=
Only the weather controls my maggot farm.
Harvest with the wind at your back and gloves on your hands.

I think you need to attract Horse flies. Those things don't look like they would fit on a hook.

You are absolutely right. They are only about a day old. It isn't harvest time yet.
