    I go on an annual 3 day bream fishing trip (2 weeks away) and heard someone suggesting using whole kernel corn out the can to chum and attract bream to your location. Guy told me to pour out the corn and leave the area....and return later to fish. He suggested using live crickets for bait.

    Anyone ever tried this????

    The carp guys in England do this all the time. It works for carp, and I know another guy that does the same with soybeans for catfish.

    I don't see how this would attract bream though?

    I did see a neat set up once where a guy had a metal chicken wire basket on a pole in his pond. Whenever he filleted a bunch, the leftovers went in the basket. Within a couple days it would be swarming with maggots that would fall through mesh and the bream swarmed the area. Something like that might work!

    Yes, I have seen Carp go for corn too. They can get really worked up! I don't know why the maggot thing never crossed my mind. It's a great idea!
