South Georgia teen selling live bait in vending machine

Georgia News

ADEL, Ga. (AP) — A South Georgia teenager says business is booming since he set up a vending machine to sell live fishing bait.

Seventeen-year-old Christopher Keshawn Horne sells live minnows and worms from a machine outside a gym in Adel.

The Tifton Gazette reports that Horne launched the business Feb. 25 and had to restock his vending machine the next day.

The teen’s business, GA Boy Baits, gets help from his parents. His father, Christopher Horne Sr., is an avid outdoorsman who was already raising his own live bait. He’s been supplying his son.

The teen’s father says the vending machine was designed to keep the proper temperature for storing live bait. South Georgia Graphics did design work for the exterior of the machine and is located outside of Buddy Dukes gym in Adel, Ga., according to The Tifton Gazette.
