For feed, I have a mix of red and white maggots, but tend to use reds on the hook, unless the water is very clear. It pays dividends to vary how many maggots go into the feeder. There is certainly no need to stuff the feeder with maggots, as fewer will empty much quicker, and also prevent overfeeding the fish. Once we move into winter, a pint of maggots may be more than enough. For now, I am being quite aggressive, in a bid to feed off the small roach and arouse the interest of carp and F1s. I have one fresh and one floating maggot impaled on my size 14 Gamakatsu Power hook. I also like to try two floaters and one sinker, for a slower fall.
