|LIVE BAIT FISH & CRAB HOLDING PENS/CAGES/CONTAINERS
We have several sizes and shapes to choose from in our Bait Fish & Crab Holding Pens/Cages. Most fish & crab holding cages are made in 1" by 1" coated wire mesh. The standard 1" by 1" keeps medium to large mullet, snapper, trout, redfish, grouper etc. Fresh water fish would include all species like large bluegill, bass, perch, crappie, catfish, trout, salmon, etc. For keeping live bait, the smaller 1/2" x 1/2" is becoming the most popular being that you're not limited to what size baits that you can keep. Examples for use of the smaller mesh would include: keeping medium to large size shrimp, bait crabs, finger mullet, white bait (pilchards), pinfish, squirrel fish, threadfin herring, croakers etc. for saltwater use. Freshwater use would include small perch, bluegill, chubs, shiners, etc. Using the smaller mesh also makes a stronger, longer lasting unit, eliminating predators such as crabs, birds, raccoons, otters etc. Even though the live bait may be larger than a 1/2" by 1" mesh or even larger than the 1" mesh, the smallest 1/2' x 1/2" mesh also cuts down on red nose being that it eliminates the live bait from trying to stick their noses out of the mesh. The smaller mesh also keeps the cage smoother thus being the reason that it keeps the live bait in a much better condition.
There are no maximum size limits on how large or how many fish that you can keep in these Bait/Fish Holding Pen Cages, as long as they're not longer than the bait/fish cage. These bait/fish holding cages are very durable unlike the floating net made bait containers which tear when rubbing against pilings on docksides, wear out from normal use, and simply do not hold up to small sharks, otters, alligators or even pelicans trying to get a quick meal. If you haven't experienced any of these problems with the net made bait containers, it isn't a matter of "if" but simply a matter of "when" that you come in contact with some of the mentioned problems with these type of bait containers. It only takes one of these hungry little animals to ruin your fishing day or week when using the net model bait container.
Using Catch N Bait's Fish & Crab Holding Boxes, you'll be able to sleep with comfort knowing that your fish or bait is caged up in the highest quality Bait, Fish & Crab Holding Cage made. All constructed with a black pvc coating and stainless crimps for solid construction and long term saltwater use. No aeration needed and no pumps to burn out!
