Learn how to make a Bait Bottle to carry your worms wherever you go fishing.

I LOVE FISHING! I LOVE DOING STUFF OUTDOORS

I spent a bunch of hours and days fishing this summer. This summer I learned how to bait my hook and take fish off the hooks. So, now I could fish without my dad helping me. But, I always forget where I put the bait when fishing around the pond. Sometimes I would fish half way around the pond and forget my worms. Then I would have to go all the way back to the other side of the pond to get my worms. What a waste of time.

My bait now goes with me in my BAIT BOTTLE! No more wasting time looking for my bait. I spend more time fishing.

I hope you find my FIRST INSTRUCTABLE helpful to you can outside fishing fun!

Step 1: Tools and Supplies

You do not need many tools to make the Amazing Bait Bottle!

Tools

  • Power Drill
  • 1/8 inch drill bit
  • Scissors

You only need a few supplies to make your bait bottle.

Supplies

  • Spare plastic water bottle
  • Super Glue
  • 2 Zip Ties
  • Carabiner Clip

Step 2: Drill Holes

With the drill and drill bit drill a bunch of holes near the top of the water bottle. These are air holes so the worms can get oxygen to breath.

Step 3: Add Zip Tie

Tie Zip Tie #1 to the bottle cap nozzle.

Tie it just tight enough so it does not come off the nozzle. You want the zip tie to be able to spin around the nozzle.

Step 4: Prepare Zip Tie #2

We only need part of Zip Tie #2. We need the end that will act like a nut.

Clip the end off of Zip Tie #2.

Step 5: Connect Cap to Bait Bottle

Now we will connect the cap to the bait bottle.

  1. Push end of zip tie into one of the holes from outside of bottle.
  2. Pull end out of top of bottle
  3. Slide square connector from zip tie #2 onto zip tie #1.
  4. Pull zip tie end so you have about 3 inches of zip tie left on zip tie #1 connected to bottle cap
  5. Clip off extra zip tie.
  6. Pull zip tie out of bottle.

Step 6: Put Worms in Bait Bottle

Get worms from your worm bin or from the bait shop and put them into the bait bottle.

Step 7: Clip It

  1. Put the carabiner clip onto the bait bottle loop.
  2. Clip the bottle to your tackle box, tackle bag, fishing lanyard, or even your belt loop.
  3. Take your bait bottle wherever you go.

We did have to drill a hole into the tackle box handle to connect the clip to the tackle box

Step 8: Another Way to Make Clip Loop

Here is another way to make the loop. If your bottle has a lid on it try this.

  1. Use supper glue to glue the lid to the bottle cap.
  2. Hold lid onto cap for about a minute or two to dry.
  3. Put your carabiner clip onto the lid loop.

Step 9: Two Ways
