I used to have a micro cat which was a good boat but was bigger than I really needed, so I now have a technicat. I rarely use it but there are times and places where a bait boat is invaluable. The only advise I would give is to be careful buying second hand ones from places like ebay because they may be playing up or in need of a service. The price to service one (which includes postage back to you) is not far off £100, or at least it was when I got the micro cat serviced. Angling technics boats are very good but from my experience they tend to go wrong fairly often.

Its funny, there was a time I would use the boat every session just for acuracy and stealth. These days I prefer to cast and rarely use it.
I think a lot of that is because on one of the waters I fish, everyone is using one to send their bait out about 40 yards!
I think its worth having for those rigs down the margins where you couldn't possibly cast a bait, but ask yourself do you REALLY need one? That £300 quid could be put towards so many other things Smile

But doesn't that make them not very good as opposed to very good as in your quote ? scratch

Why is it that when ever there's a thread on Bait Boats someone always comes up with " Learn To Cast " comment ?

I don't know anyone who can cast 300/400yds ?

And I'd rather use a Bait Boat than row the baits out, especially in the dark !!

So on Big Open Waters I use a Bait Boat.

Far safer.

Very Happy , they are very good when they work. Maybe I have been a bit unlucky, but there have been a few times when I have lost connection with the boat whilst out in the lake, and the wiring connections seem to fail a little too frequently. To be fair, they may be a hell of a lot better quality than the other brands out there, but I can only go by my experiences. All said and done though, I do like their boats.

Ive got a microcat mk1 had a few problems with it etc and thats after the service with the hoppers dropping once ive out in the water... I prefer a spod myself but as someone has said baitboat as its places, especially if your on a water that everyone is using them on.... My only real issue with them is you get idiots that will fish at all costs with them and no consideration for others....

Danny,

You get that in every form of fishing, casting across other anglers lines, spodding into others swims, casting into your swim, it's a lack of angling etiquette.

As with anything, bait boats can be misused, but thats down to the anglers, nothing whatever to do with the bait boats ?

Bob - Totally agree mate didnt mean it was specific to a problem with the boat but mainly the users of them..

There is a angler on my water that gives it all the bigun but can only fish with a boat, when the comps come up he dont do anything, he cant spod i dont even think he knows what a marker is........

For those that say its cheating its just another form of technology moving forward like the bite alarms etc....
