I have a bait vending machine and am thinking of putting it in pueblo some where, do you think it would get used or not? and if so what would you all like to see in it and where? Thank for your input

Heck yeah it will be used. Maybe put it at North Shore. Minnows, crawlers and leeches would be great, but I think mnnows and crawlers would be essential.

If you do put it out, please post as I am always on the lookout for places to get bait, especially 24 hours a day.

I doubt the marinas would because you would be competing for their dollar. Pick the closet gas station to either the north or south entrance.

check with the loaf-n-jug in pueblo west, I think that would be a great spot. If they won't let you put it there, I think it would go in this nice corner of my garage. ;D ;D ;D Minnows, crawlers and leeches please.

Mcfish has the right idea, the nearest gas station would be $.  Those machines are all over in TN and VA and I am sure a good business opportunity for someone with the startup investment money heere in CO.  I have never seen one with minnows.  Only nightcrawlers, bloodworms, leeches, crickets, and red wigglers.  Near the coast in NC they also have peeler crabs and clam bait in those things.  Good luck, Just make sure you keep the product fresh for a while so that people know they can count on that machine for their bait.  Repeat business is the key!  Let me know where you put it.  If it is anywhere in the state I am sure I pass it a few times a year.

There is one inside a building (near the office) at Aurora, and one at Boyd. I think the one at Boyd (near the bathroom) had a "for sale" sign on it.

Yes pop is cold. But this machine keeps it at 45 deg's in there and that is how you would keep them alive, no colder and no hotter. When you buy worms from a store they are in a fridge arent they?

The North shore entrance has some gas stations that sell bait.
The South shore needs a bait vender since Tony's closed.

I don't think they are going to have minnows at the south shore marina.
Would be a good place.

I believe the south side would be a great spot, not only because thats the side I go in but there was a machine there previously at the bait box I believe. I personally used that machine several times and know about six others personally that also used it. I wonder if chicken livers might go good in there, I am always running out and the liver in the stores are always frozen, don't know just an idea. Sucker meat may also be a good choice don't know how these would keep but if they sold fast enough wouldn't have no worries.

Don't really see the advantage of a bait machine, other than 24 hour service. I would
be leary of buying bait that I could not inspect for quality before purchasing.

Going back to the machine location...That Loaf & Jug would be the perfect spot...hmmm or maybe that Taco Bell :eek: ;)
