Preston Innovations New Bait Tubs 2014

Sun 09 February 14


Bait management and storage whilst being transported can at times be a space consuming affair, taking up half your carryall during the warmer months, when large quantities of bait are required. To manage and organise these larger quantities of bait, one of the leading ranges available for sometime, that can be found on the side trays of the majority of anglers who fish commercial fisheries and natural venues are the BAIT TUBS from Shropshire based PRESTON INNOVATIONS. The original blue coloured tubs were part of a system that allowed multiple boxes to be stored in the minimal amount of space. Making these bait tubs a massive favourite amongst the match angling fraternities, all over the United Kingdom. To take these tubs to another level, PRESTON has now released a new range of BAIT TUBS for 2014, so the UKMA team have got our hands on a few of these tubs to have a look at.

Vital Statistics

These new for 2014 bait tubs have all the qualities of the original blue PRESTON INNOVATIONS tubs but the new range have now changed colour to a mat black with grey lids. They have been manufactured from a durable plastic, with all lids fitting securely, reducing the chances of any unfortunate spillages whilst being transported. All the new Bait Tubs have internal measuring marks for accurate bait volume checking, plus you can use them to measure water volumes for precise groundbait mixing on the bank. These bait tubes can be used individually but work well as a compact modular unit in conjunction with the PRESTON INNOVATION BAITWATER or the MONSTER EVA BAIT STATION.

The UKMA team have been using the new Pellet Tub 0.5pt (0.3lt), these sell for £1.30 and because they have a non perforated solid lid, this option is ideal for corn hard and expander pellet storage. The Bait Tub 1pt (0.6lt) sells for £1.50, and features a perforated lid making them ideal for maggots, caster, pinkie and squat storage. The Bait Tub 2pt (1.2lt) sells for £1.75 and is perfect for larger quantities of all live, natural baits that need to breathe. The Bait Tub Large has a capacity of just under 5.3pt (3.0lt) and these sell for £3.99. You can store either 3 x Pellet Tubs 0.5pt, 3 x Bait Tub 1pt or 2 x Bait Tub 2pt inside each these large tubs, making your bait storage as compact as possible.

Over the past 8 weeks, the above mentioned selection of Bait Tubs from Preston Innovations has more than comfortably stored and transported all of the UKMA teams bait requirements, whilst also offering versatility as the Large Tubs will hold enough groundbait or soaked pellets for a 5 hour match as well as storing your smaller tubs. As well as the Bait Tubs we’ve used from the new range, you have the Bait Tub 3pt (1.8lt) that sells for £1.99 and this features a perforated lid and the Bait Tub 3pt (1.8lt) with a removable riddle that sells for £3.49.
