Regardless of practicality, you have to admit that this thing has entertainment value.

Yeah, I'm not sure how that guy was compressing it on the beach. Maybe he had a gas generator too. Maybe they make battery operated models?
 
*I just watched the video again and noticed something. At 3:26 you can see a large battery and a beach cart. He must wheel everything down and then run a car air compressor off of that.

Who doesn’t need a canon?  I mean besides chunking bait think of the myriad other things you can do with it when your not fishing.
Harass your friends and neighbors as they drive through your neighborhood.
Pass beers to your buddies across town!
I could come up with a thousand and one uses for such a fine piece of machinery and I’d buy one.
Except I might already have one buried in my shed.

I'm going to hold out for a smaller version that can be used on your shoulder for sight casting in the shallows.

I have looked at those things. Watched videos with varying opinions. They look cool. I am afraid the beach cops would have me in handcuffs after the first shot. Wonder about ordinances.

I checked my local beaches and none of them has a NO CANONs sign posted. Grin

I like David's thinking.  Better to do and apologize afterwards than to ask permission and be told "no"!

There was a hand held golf ball cannon at a charity tournament this summer used a compressed air chamber charged from a scuba tank, not unlike the high end pre-charged air rifles.  Made the 325 yard par 4 "drivable"

It is $499 on their website plus $100 to ship.
I would say you could get a decent drone to do the same thing, only better.
Then you wouldn't have to freeze your bait into a torpedo.
If it is too Dangerous to Kayak, I'm fine with casted baits.
If I needed a bait cannon, I would make a home made one.
A potato gun can shoot just as far, and costs only a few dollars to make.
Too bad sharks don't like taters. Grin
