Maple peas have proved to be a very successful bait for many anglers.
CAUTION: All dry particles and nuts will absorb water and expand once submerged, for this reason they MUST all be prepared correctly (Soaked for a given time and cooked for a given time). Failure to prepare properly can be deadly to fish.
TO PREPARE: Soak for a minimum of 24 hours then boil for 15-20 minutes. The maple peas should be soft but not mushy.
After boiling, Maples can be allowed to ferment if they are left in their own water for several days, they become quite sticky and give off an attractive milky cloud and a unique smell that attracts the fish.
Note: Once cooked you can also add liquid foods, oils or bait additives of your choice to add even more attraction.
