I use a mesh sports bag, so much cheaper.

so you catch the bait live, cutup, and put in mesh bag? or dead bait in mesh bag?

When I chum this IS the way to do it!

I have had red snapper, tuna, kings, mahi, cobia, etc come running almost every time I have used mine.

I have had red snapper come up from the depths (85 ft) to within feet of the churn and the surface. We were able to use 12 Lb spinners with cut chunks to cast to the fish we wanted! Just like the inventors video. It works. Granted slick calm conditions. No wind or current.

Some of the best money I have ever spent.

Love my chum churn, shame I don't have a boat to use it on anymore. Works s advertised, but it also brings a bunch of undesirables to the surface as well. I personally like catching sharks but many do not share my passion for fighting blacktips and spinners on light tackle.

I have had my chum churn for 6-8 years now and have used it many times in the Gulf. I have tried all types of fish to grind inside. Can't say that I can account for any fish worth keeping being lured to the boat. I call mine the remora churn. It's guarenteed to have at least 5-10 remoras at all times around the boat. Works great for sharks. I would not be a bit upset if my chum churn accidently fell off the boat. I am ready to sell if anyone is interested.
