Bait boat for live baiting

Post  The fisherman on Mon Oct 08, 2018 9:07 pm

Iím in the process of building a bait boat mainly for ferrying out live baits. Iíve half built a tipper style hopper with a sliding lid so the bait canít flap around too much and tangle up. The partition bit is so the lead can go one side and bait the other. The tipper tips and the lead slips down, hits a door held with magnets and the lead and bait land perfectly. Thatís the plan anyway. Iím wondering if anyone has got any ideas or has built their own?

Forgot about this thread...

Finally got to the field testing stage! Itís very crude and aesthetically sheís not finished. Got some holes to fill and sand down and of course a lick of paint but Iíll only be doing that once I know she works and doesnít sink!
Taking her to a small local pond to see how she goes Saturday (as long as I can get some live bait) in preparation for an over night we Iím doing just after Christmas. Fingers crossed!!

if the whole white bit lifts up so that the bait and tackle can slide out surely it will act like a sail (while its up) and possibly tip the boat. Have you tested it in windy conditions yet?

Hadnít thought of that lol. It should be ok, the majority of the weight is low down and the side of the tipper isnít a huge area. Weíll find out tomorrow

it sounds quite complicated mate and will your livey be in good condition being "dry" for so long? i have a livey boat where the bait is in water the whole time. †i can send a pic if you want. oh and they can't flap but they can breath Cool
