What exactly is the SandBlaster Bait Caster? Well, If you have spent anytime fishing from the bank, you have probably on occasion, wanted to be able to cast your bait jussssst a bit further. Maybe you’re fishing where wading would be too hazardous or impractical and the fish seem to be just out of your casting reach. Frustrating I know, its happened to me more than a few times. Or, you’re surf fishing and the birds and fish are busting bait off the beach, but it’s too far and too deep for you to get there.
Now, there are long casting instructors and videos that will teach you how to increase your distance. Nick Meyer of BreakAway USA has several and is a former Olympic long casting coach. He has his own tackle shop as well and can supply you with all the necessary rods, reels and accessories to get you casting farther.
Of course, the Surf Fishing Quick Start Guide we previously reviewed, has casting distance tips as well. There are even drones being developed and used for fishing and you check them out in my review of the SwellPro Splash Drone 3, and radio controlled bait boats, but, there is another option, the SandBlaster Bait Caster cannon. 😉 I mean, you had me when you said cannon. Then, a fishing cannon, I’m in.
Fishing with a Cannon
OK, I’m a guy, so all you had to do was say Cannon and you’ve got my attention. And, yes they really have made a fishing cannon. The folks at Bunker Up Fishing have built the SandBlaster Bait Caster. Now you can literally “fire” your baits from a cannon out much farther than any of us can cast.
Maybe you’ve seen or even used a potato gun. Well, the SandBlaster Bait Caster is built on the same principle but uses compressed air to launch you bait instead of igniting some flammable propellant like most potato guns. So, off the top, it at least sounds safer. But come on, I know your curious, I mean fishing with a cannon, how cool is that?
You are sure to get some curious looks from the crowd, so be sure you check with the local authorities about any legalities. Don’t need any unwanted meetings with local law enforcement. And of course, watch for others around you, it is a cannon and you could cause serious injury to persons or property if you are not careful of your aim.

Bait Molds – Sandblaster Bait Cannon – 6 Pack
To use the Sandblaster Bait Cannon, you have to use these specially shaped molds to form your bait to fit the firing chamber. You rig you bait of choice and freeze it in the molds like a Popsicle. Once launched and in the water it will begin to thaw and attract fish. The SandBlaster Bait Caster comes with a six pack of molds, but with this extra 6 pack of bait molds, you will be able to stock up on bait before you head out fishing.
SandBlaster Regular or Compact?
There are some advantages to the compact SandBlaster. It is fold able and takes up less room than the original, the barrel is shorter but they claim that has no effect on the distance. This extra convenience of being fully assembled and fold able does come with an extra price however. So, it just depends on what you need. If space is an issue, then the compact may be the way to go. If price is a sticking point, then the original will be your best option
