The Bait Pucks work fantastic.

Remember to knife them at every pull.

I have a second set that I clip on a couple hours into it. I leave the first puck in there as well.

I got my first limit the other night with them and even threw back 2 legals as I pulled up my last nets.

Awesome, let me know how they work. Maybe they can be in a grab bag as a giveaway at yakfest 2013

NICE!!!! Yeah I've been sticking my knife through the slits at least before every outing. Glad they are working for you.
Did you find you had to keep rebaiting though, since you have a lot more access to the bait?

Please call them the "Drake Puck" to all your friends. I want to leave my mark any way I can haha

I just like to put out new bait an hour or two into it for even more scent. I do not rebait the Drake Pucks™ in place, I just put in an additional one.

I am thinking of trying scissors to cut up the bait in the Drake Pucks™ at each pull. I also have found a straight edge screw driver works great for opening them up.

The current will be strong tonight as well as foggy, sounds like a fun night to hoop as I am going out again this evening.

Almost 2 months, and these things are still holding up well. I've only had to re-bait 3 times and I've used them over 15 times. Just switched from Sardines to Greenbacks, I'll report back when I figure out how they work with Greenies

Been doing this for years, works great. I like the smaller 2" pvc, less bait to fill and keep seals and rays from slurping your shit.

When no seals are around i use the Jim Kelley special aka Deamon, cant share that though.

DEAMON with the bugs and the biscuits. He's a legend in my book. Another fine kayaker lost to a skiff.

I use those in addition to the homemade bait tubes.

Having seen a family at Mole (when it was allowed) get their nets torn by sea lions, I stop putting anything in the net pucket.

I use clips to attach the "bait pucks" to the upper ring and bottom net.

it provides scent and the seals leave the netting alone.
