Bait boats are an essential tool for those predator anglers who enjoy fishing on, or rather near, highly pressured swims. A high-pressure swim will often result in scaring fish off into more ‘unfishable’ territory. However, with the proper use of a bait boat, you’ll be able to access those previously unfishable areas. Baits boats allow you to do a lot more than just accurately distribute bait, and you can accurately drive your rig to the predator fish in question with the use of a bait boat.

Predator anglers are increasingly looking for ways to get ahead of the game. When fishing a pike or predator venue, bait boats provide a technologically advanced solution to the problem of accurate dead bait distribution.
Predator bait boats can be used to transport bait, end tackle, and predator lures to designated locations. Using this device, anglers can reach an otherwise difficult-to-reach fishing spot – allowing them to target areas that you won’t be able to with traditional casting methods.
A bait boat can greatly improve your fishing range when dead baiting for pike, perch, and zander - but it also opens up other possibilities such as baiting up the swim. With a bait boat for predator angling, you can reach the pike or other predator fishing that is feeding in the harder-to-reach areas.
Make sure you connect up a charged battery to the connectors in your bait boat and ensure the battery compartment is secured. Ensure your remote for the bait boat is fully charged or with fresh batteries and then add power.
Next, you are ready to load your bait! With your dead bait rig, be sure to thread the bait and predator braid through the hopper door and up to the bait compartment, bring your choice of lead through also, then close the hopper door to secure your dead bait in place!
You can cut up small pieces of dead bait to add over your predator rig to add attraction to the area you ship your bait boat to. When catching a pike with a bait boat, you can also use groundbait and strong fish-flavored bait liquid and bait goos to attract the fish.
