Well Stu, kayak fishing is a lifestyle, not a hobby, sometimes you have to look at the swell report and say "Hey bud let's party"

its some sort of drain cover used to keep leaves out of drains..don't know the exact name but you can find it at OSH.  I saw it on another bait tube page and I acted like my chinese heritage and stole it.

i'm not that technical.  I just got a 3" bait tube, gooped two types of caps to it and cut a door out + hinge.

i am overall pretty proud of my bait tube, its kept alive just about everything from a dozen sardines to a 14" jacksmelt that I never figured out what to do with.

I found this on a retailer's site.  It retails for $90.



Seems pretty functional.

...you can also use a funnel - just drill some holes on it.

Guys I'm loving these threads. New to NCKA although I've lurked for while. Very innovative, and it fires me up. I really appreciate it.

My question is: what size PVC should I use? I went to Home Depot today and got 4", but I'd love to downsize to something cheaper and less bulky. Is 2" too small for king fish/sardines? Maybe 3" is the sweet spot? What do you think?

Regarding length, I'm thinking 14" but I just pulled that out of thin air. What do you think?

Could not find a newer post on the subject so here's mine.
Only thing to do different next time is to glue on the base so when it is removed from the water it still holds water. 4" x 14"

3 inch abs. Capped one end. The other is a standard drain screen. Works awesome, it does slow my paddle by 0.6mph which is considerable. Cost about 30 bucks. 8 buck was glue. If anyone is interested, I have glue.
