We produce maggots year ’round and guarantee freshness. We are one of the largest producers of fresh bait maggots in the U.S. and Canada. Our business has survived through the years because of the quality product we consistently produce. A lot of maggots sold in the United States and Canada have actually been raised in England and shipped air freight for the U.S. and Canadian markets.
We ship via FedEx in insulated Styrofoam containers with gel packs to deliver the quality needed for your resale market.
The maggots are most widely used in fishing for Kokanee (land-locked salmon), whitefish, perch, carp and other pan fish. The larvae is a meat fly, commonly known as the Blue Bottle fly, approximately ¾” in length.
The nature of our business is to produce a quality product for wholesale distribution. In no way do we wish to compete with distributors purchasing our product. We would like to refer individuals, and fishing clubs wishing to purchase our product in small quantities to dealers listed.

Mealworms Make Excellent Trout and Other Fish Bait
Earthworms are a favorite choice of bait for many trout anglers. But did you know trout also love mealworms?
Mealworms are much smaller than worms. They also have a hard outer shell, segmented body, and lots of legs. These worms are the larval form of the darkling beetle – so in reality, they’re more of an immature insect as opposed to a worm. This is probably why fly fishermen tend to be more familiar with their value in trout fishing.
You can put them on your hook just like a worm and fish them using a spinning rod and reel combo. Mealworms can be used in lakes, rivers and streams to catch trout. When fishing in lakes, you can bottom fish mealworms or used a bobber to keep them near the surface where trout are feeding.
Next time you go fishing, give them a try! And remember, other fish besides trout like them too!

UNPACKING & CARE FOR MEALWORMS
Our mealworms arrive packaged in bulk with newspaper. Remove newspaper and transfer mealworms to a container with bran. Refrigerate at 45 degrees F. The mealworms require moisture to remain healthy, so add carrots, cabbage, apples, or potatoes. Be sure to remove old moisture food that is not consumed rapidly.
