A bait boat doesn’t have to cost the earth and the Jabo Radio Controlled Fishing Bait Boat is probably the cheapest commercially made bait boat on the market, coming in at under £120 for the standard model. That’s the brand new price, not second hand!
The bait boat is made from strong plastic and is completely sealed to ensure no water can get inside, even if it turns over. If you’re using it in very wavy conditions and the boat did capsize, it is designed to turn itself the right way up again. Another great feature of this boat is that the propellers are actually on the inside and protected. This means that even if using in weedy water the boat will never get tangled up.
Other features include a fish attracting underwater lamp and a rig dropper so your hook can be dropped exactly where you want it.
The Jabo comes in two different versions with the upgraded version featuring a built in high spec fish finder. This comes with an LCD transmitter instead of the standard one that displays lots of information sent back from the boat. As well as the main fish finder function, the LCD also displays water temperature, water depth, fish depth and battery life.
