The Way We Hunt’s Bait Cannon Range Test:


BONUS: If you fish with a BAIT LAUNCHER and you’re looking for alternatives to freezing your entire bait rig in ice – you NEED TO WATCH this video:

… In this video, we experiment with a few different methods to load and shoot your COMPRESSED AIR BAIT LAUNCHER WITHOUT FREEZING the entire bait rig!

BONUS X2: If you’re also interested in getting the MAXIMUM DISTANCE out of your bait cannon – check out this video:

… We tested the effects of barrel length on distance for an air bait cannon, and we show you how to calculate the (approximate) optimal barrel length for your bait cannon! Enjoy!

Actual performance (distance) will always vary based on air chamber size, air pressure (psi) in the air chamber, weight of the bait rig, wind and ambient conditions. Even with precautions, this stuff can get dangerous, so, build and use at your own risk! You need to use pressurized pvc and we recommend schedule 80. Be safe and have fun!
