Homemade Floating Bait Sieve

Recommended Posts

I made this MacGyver-style today, it's not the most elegant thing, but it cost all of about $5 for the kids swimming float and the microwave splatter dish. Gonna buy a yabbie pump tomorrow and take it out at the weekend for a trial run.

nice work adam looks nice might have to put a few more small holes in it you don't want sand going over the sides

its all about trial and error and then fixing it up to make it better give it a try i'm sure it will work

good luck with the fishing

Hi Mate,

I use a $2 plastic pasta strainer from one of those 2 dollar Asian shops. Works pretty good

Cheers

Looks good Adam

As Seamus said maybe a few more holes but otherwise, it looks great and should work

Good luck on the whiting

I bought a fine mesh landing net and when you start pumping i push the handle into the sand so the net is half submerged then pump straight into the net because the pump then releases under the surface it stops most of the sand splashing all over you. You can then pump a few spots around you before you move to the next holes.
