I wasn't sure if it was going off with some bacteria or drying out or if the fish minded, I still would rather present them with nice pink meat just in case. Some fish I am sure eat rotting dead fish but not all. Think of most baits, casters, maggots' for example or sweetcorn maybe, I would rather they were all as fresh as can be. The meat in the tin, I would still rather have the meat in the tin not exposed in the air and the simpler less messy anything is does me, I will be using punch only and I am not going to bother taking it out and cutting it into cubes anymore. I have some old syringes which were mentioned and they just need adapting and something else, my plastic tube with a plunger made out of a bit of wood and I have an old top section of a rod that I might take a look at. I only want 2 maybe 3 sizes, I like making things heath Robinson style apart from anything else it saves money. I will still have a look in the tackle shop but I think I have what I want now. thanks for all the help and putting all the ideas my way.Leaving it in the tin doesnt stop it going off,if you take it from the tin and shave a gnats off every hour or so it is still pink inside,it is drying out not going off and fish eat rotting dead fish in the water,where there is protein they will munch it....
Spam freezes well, takes on flavour( curry, chili, F1 etc) and if sliced and kept in a ziplock bag, will keep for ages. I hate open tins and consider them dangerous as scars on my fingers will testify.
