Hello from NC

Post by Brad Holder » January 6th, 2018, 10:02 pm

Hello guys. I'm from Lexington NC, and myg hime lake is High Rock Lake. I've been striper fishing for nearly 22 years using both live bait and artificial techniques. I've been in industrial maintenance for my whole adult life. Married, father of 2. Recent purchaser/new owner of Creek Bank Bait Tanks.

Welcome, Brad. Are you going to be selling the Bait Spas as well? They are great little items for the transport duty. Also work great for the in-hull tanks.

How's the striper population in High Rock doing? That was quite the hotspot in the early part of the 2000s.

I don't know how many people I hear asking if the BaitSpas are still around and available. I have a new one in the package that I'm hoarding still :)

Mike, I used to catch a lot of bait off Nutbush Bridge on Buggs. They have a catwalk for castnetting there but won't let you stop a vehicle on the bridge. My Bait Spa has definitely come in handy when ferrying bait from the catwalk to the parking lot. I have one of those wheeled coolers. Just place the the Bait Spa on the bottom, hook it up to a motorcycle battery, and go. About everyone who sees it wants to know where to buy one. :tupl:

I do have the molds for the bait spa. I will have to modify it though because it was based around the original proprietary Creek Bank aeration. Since that aerator mold was destroyed, I have to modify. Hopefully I can find an alternative, and I think I can.
