MAPLE PEAS (uncooked) Or Cooked
Maple peas have proved to be a very successful bait,
they can be used along with hemp and other particle
baits as a great pulse bait for carp. They are also a
good bait for other fish such as chub, tench, barbel
and even roach.
Maple peas can be used as a groundbait or hook bait.
Cover with water and soak for 12 – 24 hours, add
sugar or a sweetener to the water, flavours can be
added if desired. As the maples soak up the water and
expand you may need to add more water to ensure
they are covered. After soaking tip the maples and
water in a pan and bring to the boil and simmer for
around 10-15 mins.
