there is a thread here about a bait boat in the carp thread.

 

if anyone remembers it i finally got around to trying out my nephews little rc amphibious toy with retractable wheels. and im pleased to say it works amazingly.

 

i made a few holes in a maggot tub tied it to the wheels with braid and drove it out 40ft before i ran out of water and dumped my cargo and returned to fill it up again.

 

i got about 10 trips with it before it began to slow down, 20 trips if i pull it back in with some line attached to my reel to save on the batteries

 

boat - £40

tub - £1.00

the look on other anglers faces - pricless :D

 

ill get a short clip of it up in a day or 2 in action

thanks for that elton much appreciated, regarding the the comment on boiles, it can be used very widely. the place i was using it produces tons of fish but none that are very big and getting bait droped over their is next to impossible unless its in some sort of ground bait but i just prefer to loose feed so the boat worked perfectly

 

im now going to figure out a better way of attaching bait tubs to it and put them on each wheel. perfect for dropping pike baits aswel.

 

one thing i have noticed, it gets full of water in the little spaces for the wheels to retract in to so its recomended to tip it out or the back end goes under a little effecting the speed but it will not sink it
