Maggot stew with squid

Post by Matt Flynn » Wed Jan 24, 2018 9:46 pm

Took the kids camping, and found about 8kg of writhing maggot soup in a cardboard box near our camp.

Leaving fish to rot around camp sites seems to be a popular pastime here.

Luckily I took a small mattock with us, so I buried the lot. Had to laugh because the 10,000 maggots will probably be exposed by a devil or a dog and will hatch into blowies for the Australia Day long weekend.

Otherwise some good camping was had, and we hit the jetty on the way home for calamari. I helped a bloke land a big Melbourne skate, which whacked me on the leg as I pulled it up the stairs. Luckily they have no sting, only sharp lumps on their tail.

Live Maggots are a ripper bait for brown trout best ones are off the dead roadkill not from the tackle shops.

When I lived in UK they sold maggots by the litre, you could buy different sizes in different colours, food dye I presume.

Squid cooked up alright, I put vinegar and moroccan seasoning in the batter.

I thought he was going to eat it, but he let it go.

Nothing wrong with rays though, if you can be bothered :)

They are very keen on shark here, some even eat mako, but I reckon it would be full of mercury.

Bought a piece of of flake with chips at a shop last week, it was a huge slab but mushy, and it sure smelt like shark. Gave it all to the chooks, minus two bites.
