This afternoon I stopped at one of my local waters for a quick stalk. I had cut all my gear down to just a rod, net, mat and a small tackle box. I had planned to drop a drilled out Sticky Baits Krill boilie with a Maggot Plug next to some pads… I had cut my gear down so much I had forgotten my drill. Joy.
Never fear! Half a boilie with a cut down Green Maggot Plug to the rescue.
Fluoro main line down to a lead clip set to drop the 4oz lead on the take, nice short heavy supple braided hook link and a size 6 hook. Winner!
I had found the fish in the pads, trickled some half boilies in next to them and lowered the rig in…
I could see the green Maggot Plug wafting gently. The first fish to find it got nailed.
Boom! 18Lb common in the net!
The green baits often get overlooked by anglers. Im not sure why… I love a green wafter!
