A Russian fisherman has invented a clever way to cast bait rockets far distances.
Bait rockets are typically floating cylindrical tubes that drop ground bait to attract fish like carp. They usually require a large fishing rod, and they can be hard to cast far distances.
The bait rocket in this video is literally a bait rocket.
Whoever the Russian engineering whiz in this video is, it seems he’s come up with a clever solution to the bait rocket distance problem.
His device appears to be a mortar that can launch a bait rocket a few hundred yards while it’s attached to fishing line.
Or, it could be a device that he’s using to cast his lure farther out into the sea. It’s hard to tell. It could be both. Either way, it’s genius.
