Can I combine the two main hoppers of the bait boat into one larger compartment?

Yes, you can. The bait boat contains two main hoppers separated by a plastic wall, which can be easily removed. Simply unscrew the handle holding the plastic wall, remove the wall, and then screw the handle back into place. This process requires no technical skill. As a result, you'll have one big hopper compartment instead of two, providing flexibility in bait storage based on your preferences or needs.
