Live bait... live bait.... live bait and fear of seals etc so all the talk is about some sort of method to keep the bait in the surrounding water.

Why not have a small bait well with aerator on board out of the water(or in) and the eye of the curious? This does not mean the well has to be on the tube just closed off to the visual attraction and motion of live bait in a well.

Yes there would be a drag problem I'm sure. Drag shmag if your catching your target fish its a trade off.

Why couldn't the well be hydro dynamic to alleviate some of the drag if it becomes an issue?

Why does the bait well have to be utilizing the surrounding water for sustaining the bait?

Why does the well have to allow the bait to be seen by predators?

I say it doesn't.

Please don't tell me the seals will smell the accumulation of bait near your tube. We all goop enough fish sauce on our plastics to attract every seal and predatory fish out there so be real.

Ed's bucket on a boogie board is the best idea I've seen so far.


How about another device? Anyone?

I always use live bait when fishing salt until recently when I started fishing the harbor in my tube. I would really like to use live bait.

I own several fishing tanks (largest is 180 gallon) and I have tons of pumps, powerheads I can use. However I was looking at the option of setting up a bait tube.

I like the bait tube idea, but I can see the down side of leaving that sent trail in the water. Those pictures of the bait tube look very good. Thumbs Up good luck.

Well there's one idea on the table. Is the hardware stainless?

No clue I didn't make that one. I've seen them before used by guys on kayaks.

Here are a couple of videos.

I like the ends on this one as it would allow more water to flow through the tubes, but not sure about the latch portion.


Here is another one that uses all pvc.

I like the first tube video the best so far. Very simple and effective design.
