Modified Potato Cannon can Launch Fishing Bait 200 Yards Offshore

For anyone that has ever gone fishing, you know that getting your bait in the perfect spot can make a huge difference on the catch that you come away with that day. If you are looking to fish on an ocean shoreline you would likely have to wade out in the water a little bit to get your bait into an area good for larger fish. One man decided that he needed a better way to cast his bait into the ocean, so he created a giant pneumatic bait launching cannon. The cannon is capable of launching a frozen bait projectile over 300 yards offshore. It’s a pretty ingenious engineering solution to a common fishing problem.
