In a earlier post we were talking about bait boats, but at the time I couldnt get to the pics. The first picture is of commercialy made "Bait Shuttle"! The other pics are of Niko boats that were customized by taking out the servos and mounting outriggers for retreival and electric motor control of the unit and the other for taking out your bait and bait release. You steer using both out riggers which are conected to two rods.The bait shuttle works fine for getting out a couple oz's and a live mudsucker out 300 yards! The drawbacks you need 4 d batteries every fishing trip and it cant handel a bunch of current! The Customized boats can carry quite a bit more weight 4 or 5 oz and maybe more depending on model you choose. You can buy these boats for under a hundred and make the outriggers cheaply. You can charge them from your car battery. I have my eye on a full displacement work boat that I want to convert to a bait boat! Some times out at the place we use these boats, there will be maybe 10 boats out and it like a miniture harbor! Everytime I go out there someone has tricked there baitboat out a little more! It,s fun and a lot cheaper then the 700 to a 1000 dollar and up, units popular in the U.K.
