A bait ship for fishing is a radio-controlled ship that can deliver bait and tackle to the desired point in the reservoir, as well as scan fishing points using an echo sounder (if available). For lovers of carp fishing, a bait boat allows you to save bait, accurately cast tackle (even in difficult terrain) and build a map of the reservoir, without the need to swim in a boat. Some let’s say advanced models can even feed several fishing points at the same time, and swim between them independently using GPS (points are set by GPS coordinates). If you are a fan of fishing, and especially carp fishing, then most likely you have already heard about bait boats. Usually their cost is quite high, especially for those models that are individually produced by various local domestic craftsmen. And, for example, last year, the prices for such ships could be compared with the price of a used Lada. But this year, the production of such ships began already in China, and prices sank noticeably.
Below I propose to look at some interesting ship models in my opinion. Each one is interesting in its own way.
Bait fishing boat Jabo 2CG
This ship has an echo sounder, GPS, autopilot. The battery capacity will allow you to swim up to 3 hours without recharging. The hull is made in the form of a catamaran, which has a positive effect on stable running and stability. There are running lights and backlight. There is a mesh protection of the propellers, which will be useful in conditions of overgrown with mud reservoirs. The platform for bait has a protective cover (protection from splashes and rain), and the bait / load dump mechanism is implemented in the form of a dump truck. The ship allows you to carry up to 1.5 kg of payload. There are several configuration options to choose from, and delivery is made from a warehouse in the Russian Federation.
Fishing boat for bait Nest
The fishing boat for bait Nest is primarily interesting for its price. For a little over $150 we get GPS, up to 2kg payload and up to 500 meters of declared range. It is also interesting that there are already three compartments for bait, and you can control each one separately. Of the minuses here, I can only note the absence of an echo sounder, but this can be solved with an external fish finder-float, which is attached to a leash. In terms of working time, it all depends on the configuration. With the smallest battery, the boat will sail up to 2.5 hours, and with the largest battery up to 6 hours. Since this is a completely budget option, you will have to worry about running lights and propeller protection yourself and collect something. But the model is interesting primarily as a starting option for revision. I advise you to take a look.
Fishing boat for bait Nest V18
The Nest V18 is a more advanced version of the regular Nest. Here we have already added a float-echo sounder, worked on the design and hull. The boat is equipped with a sufficiently powerful motor and can carry loads up to 4kg. At the same time, there are also three compartments for bait. In the fattest configuration, the buyer receives a convenient carrying case, a boat stand holder, a convenient control panel and a wireless fish finder + screen module. The seller has a delivery from a warehouse in the Russian Federation, so you can even try the boat in wet water this year.
Bait fishing boat Flytec 2011-5
Another budget option is Flytec 2011-5. This ship does not have an echo sounder or GPS on board. But on the other hand, it weighs only 1.5kg, while being able to carry up to 1.5kg of bait. The boat has two independent bait tanks. And the range is up to 500 meters. This option is suitable for small reservoirs without a current, where the relief is already known and you just need to deliver the bait to the place. At the same time, the light weight of the ship will allow you to easily carry it in your hands even in hard-to-reach places. Therefore, compact size and simplicity in this case is not a minus at all.
Fishing boat for bait Boatman DL
The Boatman DL bait fishing boat is the most expensive, but the most interesting option in the selection. This is, so to speak, a premium class among bait boats. Carbon fiber hull, speed up to 5 km/h, carrying weight up to 6 kg, two lateral tilting tanks and a central body with the possibility of partially dropping cargo under the boat. Echolocation up to 100 meters depth, with the ability to display not only the terrain, but also fish, GPS with 56 points memory, auto return, color screen control panel, aerodynamic shape. All this is very, very captivating. But the price tag is scary.
I understand that now in many regions it is no longer the season, and it is no longer possible to use bait boats due to hard water. But in this case, the saying “prepare the sleigh from the summer” is well suited. After all, everything is now becoming more expensive, sadly. And it’s better to buy such a ship on sale now than later, in the spring, to take it, but more expensive. So despite the NOT season, I think that you need to watch and buy such goods now. Moreover, now the sale on 11.11 is on the nose and you can apply coupons.
