Buckets really are the only way to transport your bait to and from the bank. Not only are they the perfect container for transporting a huge quantity of bait, but our collection of lidded and breathable buckets also ensures that your baits stay fresh in short and long-term storage too (timescale dependant on the bait stored).
We, here at Angling Direct understand that not all anglers want to take the same amount of bait with them, and we also understand that some anglers will want to take multiple varieties of baits with them. To accommodate all possibilities, we’ve ensured that we stock bait buckets in a number of sizes. Whether you want to take a number of baits each at 2.5L, or you want to go all out with 18L of a killer bait mix that you know will do the business on the bank, we stock bait buckets that encourage all manner of possibilities.
Our range of carp fishing bait buckets not only come in a variety of sizes but also a variety of shapes. A popular option under our carp fishing section is the traditional round or cylindrical bucket, perfect for storing and mixing bait but also making pouring water onto a fish on the bank much easier.
The square, modular or rectangular buckets are a great option if you prefer a bucket with corners to closely fit in the boot of a car or barrow. The square buckets are not only easy to store but can often double up as a useful work surface when baiting and trying up your rigs.
We also store more than just hard plastic buckets for your carping needs. Check out the collapsible buckets in our range These are great for anglers with little storage but need a container whilst on the bank for transferring freshwater or somewhere to store the ground bait mix.
Bagging buckets or buckets with trays are great for separating the bait you may have made before arriving at the bank. Keeping those delicate PVA bags separate from the rest of a soggy mix is vital! We also stock riddles in this section that help to separate bait in your bucket too.
As an angling organisation, we know that buckets alone are not the sole tools you require to properly prepare your baits. That’s why a number of our bait buckets come fitted with their own riddles as well as selling some riddles separately. Riddles are a vital tool for easily sifting your groundbait, and as such are essential for the dedicated carp angler.
When using live bait to entice carp, you want to keep your maggots in tip-top condition so you can attach them to your rig with them still wiggling and lively enough to catch a carps attention. A riddle comes super handy for this as you can pick up your maggots on the way to a session and pour the maggots over the riddle and bucket at the bankside. You will find that all the alive maggots will fight through the riddle and drop into the bucket whilst the less than lively and inactive maggots will remain in the riddle.
Riddles aren’t the only bucket accessories we stock, and we also stock an innovative bucket top cushion, enabling you to quickly and easily transform your bucket into a small perch for a weary angler. If you’re looking for bait with which to fill your bucket, we also stock a wide range of bait, designed with carp fishing in mind.
