We make bait transfer scoops that are light and durable. The handles which come in 3 different lengths are constructed with thin wall tempered and anodized aluminum tubing. The end is plugged so that the scoop floats. A standard 15″ diameter ring is fitted on the other end. We add a heavy duty hand sewn net bag which has been tarred for longer life, and lace this to a stainless steel inside wire.
The lengths are as follows:
Canopy Scoops — 4′ handle
For use on the bait tank. Shortened handle allows the chummer to work under the bait tank canopy.
Transfer Scoops —6′ and 8′ lengths
These scoops are for bait transfer out of the net or bait receiver into your tank or bait wells. While we offer this scoop in a 6′ length, the 8 footer is by far the best size to have on board. If you are considering only 1 scoop, get the longer 8 footer.
Here is a copy of our bait scoop instructions:
Congratulations! You have just spent a bunch of your hard earned money for this bait scoop. Please spend two minutes to find out how to make this piece of equipment last 10-12 years.
Thank you for buying one of our fabricated aluminum bait scoops. With proper handling and reasonable care this scoop will speed up your ability to move live bait, decrease initial bait mortality and by proper loading (only half full) will help you gauge how much fish your tanks or wells can safely hold.
- When passing bait from net to boat or well to tank, wet the scoop handle and your hands so the scoop slides easily through each persons grip.
- Never drag the handle over the coaming edge! Keep the handle scratch free, smooth and the anodized finish intact.
- Only load the scoop half full. A half full scoop is one standard scoop in the bait business. This keeps the bait from being crushed and the ring from bending.
- Don’t fend off the ring end! These scoops have wooden ends to be used for carefully pushing the skiff or boat away from the net.
- Wash off with fresh water and store indoors during the off season.
We supply low cost chum scoops mostly as a courtesy to our customers. Our handle and scoop frame are made by Precision Marine in Costa Mesa, CA. We add a heavy duty hand sewn knotless bag tarred for long life and lace to a stainless steel inside wire on a stainless ring. This is an item where you should have two on board—just in case.
