Maggot Machines

Recommended Posts

Have found these ideal through the year for occasional fishing as I have been able to tip a few into a bait tin, put the lid back on the tin and store it in the fridge, the holes are so small that there is no chance of them getting out and the tin is cold enough that there is no maggoty odour wafting out over the food.

Does anyone know if these machines are stocked year round (closed season excluded) and also maybe it would be usefull to have a list of where they are.

I know there is one at WRC, one outside the general store at Loddon and one up by Lathams at Potter, anyone else seen any around?

Ian

Are we having a nomination for the best maggot machine next.

:P:lol::clap

Can't recall seeing one at Maltsters but i could of course be wrong. Or fuddled. or both.

One at the Waveney River Centre as well. Has anyone mentioned Loddon? I think there is also one next to the Bridge stores.

Is there any way that we could get a comprehensive list together.

We could print it out and have it on board.

Very useful for me!!!

Hi Ian

I had a good nosey round a couple of weeks ago and didn't notice a machine there. I also looked around the side where the smoking shelter is but couldn't see anything. It's probably gone the same way as the hand dryers...... :naughty:

Thanks for the info.

I did think that might be the case. We have family on the boat next week and they will be doing a bit (well lots) of fishing, so it looks like an early trip to Potter Heigham.

Thanks

The tackle and gun shop opposite Suffolk Sailing sells all kinds of bait Ian, it may be easier to get some on your way up, unless SWMBO won't have it in the car that is. :naughty:

David,

The lads will come up on Sunday so they can sort themselves out. Birds the tackle shop is one of the options for them. Liz remembers the early fishing days when someone spilt the maggots down the air vent on the hire boat, the vent was just over her bed and she had little visitors dropping in during the holiday!

For information this is the tackle shop, very easy to get to if you are going up the A14.

And whatever you do transfer the contents to a bait box rather than fishing them straight out the tin. Those tins bear an alfully close resemblance to a coke or beer can. :o:o:o
