Ground bait ball maker

Its quite important to have your bait on the right spot when fishing, with this tool you can make round balls from your (moist) ground bait or soft pellets. Fill up the ball maker and compress it. The slot in the side is for removing air, this makes the compressing way easier and to have the option to put your hook bait in.


  • Grab one of the cups.
  • Slide over the pipe piece.
  • Fill with ground bait or pellets.
  • Slide in the 2nd cup.
  • Remove the bait ball.
  • Throw the bait ball in the water.
  • Catch fish.


The model is for 60mm balls, my catapult likes the balls somewhat smaller. So i've printed it on 80% of the original size.
