Can I purchase bait pumps at Anaconda?

Yes, you can. If you use live bait when fishing, it is important to keep it fresh! Keep your live bait in good condition during your fishing expedition with one of the bait pumps (also called aerator pumps) available from Anaconda. Battery operated and compact, they are easy to use and invaluable for keeping your bait alive.

Why should I use a bait pump?

For many species of fish, it is essential to use live bait if you want to be assured of a good catch. The natural scent, appearance and lifelike action of live bait can be irresistible to gamefish jaded by trendy artificial lures. But it takes a good balance of water temperature and oxygen working in harmony to keep bait in good condition, so it is alert enough to trigger wary fish to action.

That can be particularly difficult in the summertime, because water holds less oxygen as the ambient temperature rises. At the same time, the metabolism of fish increases, which means their oxygen consumption is greater. Ideally, as well as adding oxygen from your pump, you should aim to keep the water in the bait well a few degrees below the temperature of the water you are fishing in. Some anglers freeze some water inside a plastic bottle and keep that in their bait well, others add ice. Some bait buckets are insulated, so keeping the temperature of the water at the right level for longer.

When can I use the bait pump or aerator pump?

You can use the bait pump before you go fishing, if you have purchased or caught live bait before going off on your fishing trip. If you plan a lengthy fishing session, you can use it to keep your bait fresh during the day. You can also use the pump to keep water fresh if you want to keep your catch alive on the way back.

What else is included in this range?

You will also find a bait bucket with lid and adjustable belt to keep your bait close to hand, as well as some Black Magic "Bait Buddy", a fine elasticised thread that is virtually invisible when applied to the bait. It will help to stop bait falling off your hook as well as allowing you to use different baits together, and soft baits like shellfish.

Netting Gaffs Traps Bait and Pumps

Here at Anaconda, we have all the equipment you’ll need to catch all sorts of aquatic wildlife whether its fish, crabs, prawns, crayfish or live bait for fishing.

Fishing Nets

Anaconda offers a wide assortment of netting equipment that have been specifically designed to catch different types of wildlife. Check out our range of fish handling nets, crab pots, cray pots and shrimp nets.

After reeling in a catch, using a landing net lets you quickly get a handle of the fish and not risk losing it before it sufficiently gets tired. You can even use the landing net while the fish is still in the water, which is important if you intend to catch and release.

Here at Anaconda, you can buy modern landing nets that use lightweight frames and handles, as well as rubber mesh nets that will help protect the fish’s protective slime layer, which it needs to prevent infections. Regular nylon nets will simply scrape off this protective slime or mucus which takes a long time to regenerate, and leaves the fish more vulnerable once it’s set free.

If you want to keep your fish as fresh as possible before coming back to shore, we carry scaler bags that allow you to tow any fish you catch behind your boat while you continue on fishing. By the time you come back to shore, the fish will already be slime and scale free and ready to clean.

Bait Accessories

Do you prefer using live bait over artificial lures? Anaconda has lots of live bait accessories that will make fishing with live bait much more convenient.

Check out the Black Magic Bait Buddy which is a fine elasticised thread that helps to keep your bait from falling off your hook. It also makes using soft baits like shellfish much easier.

Anaconda also sells bait buckets or bait holders to keep your live bait secure and within arm’s reach. We also offer waterproof aerators that help keep your bait alive while in storage.

To keep costs down, you can catch your own live bait instead of having to constantly buy them from a bait and tackle shop. All you need is a bait pump, and you can collect your own bait ranging from fresh yabbies, sand worms, beach worms, wriggler worms to pipis. We also sell washer kits that contain a wide range of different washer sizes so you can repair any bait pump on your own.

Crab Pots, Cray Pots and Shrimp Nets

Crabbing and prawning are both extremely fun activities that the whole family can enjoy. You don’t need a lot of equipment or invest a huge sum to get started. Check out our selection of very affordable crab pots, cray pots and shrimp nets from top brands like Wilson and Jarvis Walker. Anaconda also sells poly rope of different lengths so you don’t end up leaving your crab traps and cray pots in the bottom of ocean.

We also offer other essential crabbing accessories like bait bags and pouches, so your bait doesn’t get entirely eaten up while crabs are stuck in your trap. If you’re laying down multiple crab traps, we also sell floats or buoys that allow you to mark where the traps are located. Anaconda also sells crabbing ID kits that come with waterproof tags and markers, so you can properly label your traps and let everyone else know who it belongs to.
