Yes, its another one of my dumb questions Is there any point in buying one of these things to catch some bait? Or could I even catch any bait with it? I had this brilliant idea of dropping it down at high tide from THS promenade and continue fishing and just retrieve it when the tied goes and hopefully I'd have some free bait for fishing the low tide when it comes would it work? Or its just a lame idea?

See this my problem I'd have to pump bait where I fish otherwise I'd waste a lot of time and I can only go once a week at most
That's the problem a lot of us have, you either go pumping it or buy it in bulk, there are a few anglers on here that pay around £2 for a pack of 10, i'm not particularly good at pumping yet but I still prefer to get my own cos as they say, practice makes perfect.
I have one of those not much use in the mersey but good fun on anglesey .throw some fishbait in and put it down the side of a rock mark or breakwater. you will be surprised what you get in it. this year at silver bay over three days we had dogs, pout, tompot blennies, pollack .edible crab, 2 lobster and some good sized prawns . saw a local once catch a 3 and a 5lb bass on floatfished live prawn from fourmile bridge.

You don`t always have to go fishing...i get a lot of pleasure from bait collecting and it`s nice to have a break sometimes. I`ve got my new bait fridge freezer so i`ll be loading it up from spring,with peelers,lug,razors,mussel so come autumn/winter i can fish the marks i want,whenever the time/tide is right. You can combine low water bass sessions with pumping worm to kill two birds with one stone. In spring you can collect 100+ peelers prior to a bass session in Wales,so before too long you will have a good stock of bait in your freezer.
