There have been a couple of threads here about feeding worms to fish.

Has anybody ever fed their fish MAGGOTS? I know that fishing shops sell live tubs of them as bait - but would they be suitable for feeding?

And would they have any nutritional value?

I'm not too sure. I think perhaps maggots are bluebottle larvae (and are larger) and mealworms are beetle larvae. Somebody correct if I'm wrong.

Although I don't like creepie crawlies, I don't mind maggots too much.

I used to go fishing with my dad quite often, and we used them as bait. I wouldn't fancy cutting one in half though ... that's just a bit too gross!
