OC­TO­BER can be one of the best months of the year for carp angling, and one of the best baits can be mag­gots.

The heat of the sum­mer has died off and sil­ver­fish will be less ac­tive, al­low­ing you the chance to fish grubs with min­i­mal in­ter­fer­ence from smaller species.

“A SOLID PVA BAG OF MAG­GOTS CAN BE DEADLY ON BOILIE-DOM­I­NATED LAKES”

A solid PVA bag of mag­gots, with real or fake ones on the hook, can be deadly on pres­sured day-ticket wa­ters like Lin­ear Fish­eries or other boilie-dom­i­nated lakes.

Mag­gots can be threaded on the hook. Buoy­ant fake ones and/or a ‘mag aligner’ sleeve over the eye aids pre­sen­ta­tion and hook­ing. A sup­ple braid is the ideal hook­link for any solid PVA bag rig as it can be coiled into the par­cel of bait with ease. Keep it short, too – 4ins is plenty. An in­line flat pear lead is ideal for this sort of rig. Make sure the PVA bag is tightly packed with mag­gots and other morsels.
