About our Spikes/ Maggots
Spikes/ Maggots are a time tested and well proven fishing bait. They work great for catching Bluegill, Sunfish, Perch, Crappie, Bass, Trout, Whitefish, and many other fish species. Many anglers use Spikes for ice fishing. However, they work well year round. Some days fish will hit nothing else, and they prefer Spikes over Red Worms and Nightcrawlers.
There are days that fish just will not bite conventional bait. This can be due to heavy fishing, water conditions, temperature, water clarity, and other factors. Worm Depot colored Spikes/ Maggots offer a variety of options that can appeal to fish when other baits simply do not!
Worm Depot Spikes/ Maggots are known for outperforming the competition! Our Spikes/ Maggots are fed a high protein diet consisting of up to 50% fish. Their diet ensures that that they are a strong bait attractant. Our Spikes/ Maggots have the proper scent and taste that fish love!
