Having a bait tank on your kayak enables you to serve your target fish it’s naturally sought after meal, a live bait. There are several types of bait tanks available for kayaks: bucket/container bait tanks, molded bait tanks and internal bait tanks. Container tanks like our Ultimate Bait Tank have a lower CG and fit in almost every tank well of a kayak currently on the market. It has its own battery box with a 6volt battery providing the power. It is very transportable as well. Jackson Kayak also have 2 different Krates that can be plumbed as a bait tank.
Malibu Kayaks X-factor and Stealth have tanks built into the kayak and just need to be plumbed. The CG of a molded tank is lower than the bucket bait tank and for the most part are more secure on the kayak. As for CG, some or even most of the water in the tank is below the waterline and acts as ballast for your kayak rather than an elevated tipping weight so it actually increases the stability.
