Product Information


The MA BM 6000 SuperBaiter is designed as a part of the Mustad Autoline DeepSea System. Performance without compromise, – each detail is designed to make the baiting process even more accurate at high speed, – and still simple to operate.

Precision baiting

At up to six hooks per second the MA BM 6000 SuperBaiter automatically cuts the bait at a pre-set size and baits the hooks consistently at a speed of up to 360 hooks per minute.
When the first buoys and anchors are launched, the hooks and line are pulled from the storage magazines through the baiting machine and over the stern. Setting speed can vary between 6 to 10 knots (3-6 hooks per second depending on the spacing between the hooks).The bait is placed on a spiked conveyor chain that feeds it into the machine where the hooks trigger a knife to cut the bait. With the patented RotoBaiter function the bait is double crouched and secures accurate baiting of hooks passing through the SuperBaiter. The SuperBaiter is operated by one crewmember who feeds the bait onto the conveyor chain.

  • Setting speed, 6 – 10 knots in high seas

Product Information


The AutoBaiter designed as a part of the Mustad Autoline Coastal System is based on the well proven Mustad principles. The AutoBaiter has a compact design, requires little space and is equipped with the reliable and patented RotoBaiter baiting system.

Precision baiting

At three to four hooks per second the MA BM 3000 AutoBaiter cuts the bait at a pre-set size and baits the hooks consistently at a speed of up to 180 – 200 hooks per minute (3 – 4 hooks per second).

The bait is placed on a spiked conveyor belt that feeds it into the machine where the hooks trigger a knife to cut the bait at a pre-set size. Equipped with the patented RotoBaiter baiting system the bait is penetrated twice onto the hook before it’s deployed over the stern.

Compact and flexible

The MA BM 3000 AutoBaiter is designed as a part of Mustad Autoline Coastal System and works perfectly with both the manual MagPacker and HandyMag storage magazines. It requires little space thanks to its compact design, and includes an integrated waste collector. The machine can operate with EZ/J-hooks ranging from size 11/0 to 15/0, and circle hooks from size 12/0 to 14/0 both straight and offset.

Shooting the line

When initial buoys and anchors are deployed overboard, lines are naturally pulled from the storage magazines through the baiting machine before being set. The baiting speed is approximately three to four hooks per second, depending on the spacing between the hooks and the speed of the boat. The baiting machine is operated by one crewmember who feeds bait fish onto the spiked conveyor belt.

MA HS 2000-03 HookSeparator

Hydraulic Systems

Key Features

  • Weight: 300 kg / 660 lbs
  • Height: 1910 mm
  • Hauling Power: Adjustable
  • Hauling Speed: 0-100 m / min
  • Sheave Diameter: Outer diam. 440mm
  • Oil Flow Rate: 16 l/min / 4,2 gl/min
  • Power Supply: Hydraulic

New version - increased capacity

Compared to the version SP2000-02 the SP2000-03 version is raised by 150mm to enable the exit rail to slope. This modification allowes the hooks to slide smoother and farther in the direction of the storage magazine which has been prooven to be less labor intensive.

Product Information


The latest version of HookSeparators

  • Efficient separation of hooks and line
  • Increased number of hooks hauled
  • Less labour intensive operations
  • Increased profit

High speed re-racking of hooks and line

The main function of the HookSeparator SP2000 is to separate the hoooks from the mainline and guide them onto the storage magazines. This is done automatically as the line is hauled onboard. The HookSeparator is also a slack taker keeping tension on the line coming from the main hauler.

New version – increased capacity

Compared to the version SP2000-02 the SP2000-03 version is raised by 150mm to enable the exit rail to slope. This modification allows the hooks to slide smoother and farther in the direction of the storage magazine which has proven to be less labor intensive.

Magnet pattern

The main reason for its efficiency is eight patented, compact and extremely powerful magnets. By catching the hooks, the magnets separate them from the mainline on to the magazine.

High quality components

The HookSeparator is made of stainless steel. The sheaves are made out of durable and lightweight aluminum composite material. The pressure wheel is spring loaded, making sure the sheaves get maximum grip on the line. A special hook guide design reduces wear on hooks and gear and ensures efficient re-racking result.

Optional water jet

To clean the hooks and line before storage, the HookSeparator can also be delivered with a high-pressure water pump. The vibration on the swivels caused by the water jet will also ease the un-twisting of snoods from the mainline, and assure maximum hook catch rate.
