    Default Floating maggots ?

    I've just been reading that soaking maggots in fizzy pop makes them absorb the air bubbles and float,

    When put on a hook they sink alot slower because they have almost neutral buoyancy,

    Just wondering if anybody has tried this and had any results ?

    Dude you were worried about feeding fish in winter, now you wanna drip feed them diet coke?

    Be careful as for every eight you could get 7up

    You don't need pop. Just a little water, not enough to cover them and after a few minutes they'll take in air making them float.

    Once just to try it. Can't say I noticed any difference but better anglers than I say it does or can.
