There are plenty of ways to fish and everyone has their favourites, but using live bait seems to be one of the most successful. And why not? Fish love to eat live fish in nature.
But it’s not always that easy to get your hands on live bait. You have to find the right places where the fish are congregating. This can take time away from fishing, and you might not even find them.
Wouldn’t it be better if there was a business that caught live bait from the local area and keep them in tanks or ponds for people to purchase for their fishing?
I don’t think you would need much to start this business apart from a large pond or tank setup (with filtration systems etc), cast net for catching live bait and I’m sure there would be some sort of council or government approvals needed. Maybe you could even run the business form the back of a car, ute or van and park at popular boat ramps.
If you sold the fish for $1 each you could potentially make a couple of hundred a day and buying 20 live bait fish for $20 is not very expensive for fishermen. Buying dead bait will cost you around the same.
What do you think? Is this a feasible business idea?
