Default Homemade PVC Cut Bait Thrower

I want to make a tool to keep on the boat to throw chunk bait. I saw one made out of pvc on floridasportfishing, but can’t find it anywhere online. From what I remember, it was a piece of 3/4” pipe (capped on each end), then something that looked like a jar attached to one end to scoop and launch the bait. Has anyone made something similar?

Cut off the end of a plastic waffle bat.

Jumbo wiffle ball bat - cut top off. Or just buy a Chum bat for $6.

Get a butterfish spine or bone stuck in your hand you'll never use your hands again.

Couple guys have almost lost limbs due to it. Nothing to play around with.

Yeah, the one on the show looked very similar to that set up.

Bend it straight, and you're good to go. Get the 12oz.
I like that idea.

Yeah, I was being a smartass; imagine that. I use an ice scoop.
