from the demo video on "that site", its funny how they dont really want to show you how far the frozen bait was actually launched. You only get a glimpse of where the bait lands, and it hardly looks like it is 300 yards out.

One of those gigantic slingshots that hurl water balloons would probably do the trick and be cheaper and lighter to tote.

Several years ago I was fishing & a guy had a home made pipe gun contraption that was shooting his bait out past the 3rd wave.

Would a remote controlled "boat" work if a device is figured to pop the bait off the side at a certain point? Light waves, or bay fishing??

A "Big Shot Line Launcher" might work. It's a very big slingshot that arborists use to shoot lines into trees.
