    Default Styrofoam Liner for 5 Gallon Bucket

    Does anyone know of a company that sells a styrofoam liner for a 5 gallon bucket? I checked all over the 'net and can't find one. I have 4 different size battery operated aerators, and a couple of aerators and pumps I can plug into the wall to save batteries. But when warm weather gets here, I'll need an insulated lbait bucket that holds at least 4 gallons to take care of bigger baitfish like shiners and chubs. I already have a 10 qt insulated minnow bucket and several of the 2 gallon pure styrofoam buckets, but they're not quite big enough for shiners.

    Someone told me Grizzly Jig Company sold liners for 5 gallon buckets, I checked their catalog and they don't now.

    I looked for awhile sometime back for the same thing, and I couldn't find what I wanted. I even considered making my own out of 1/4" styrofoam since it would conform to the bucket easy, but gave up on that idea. It wasn't thick enough for me to keep the heat out in the summer. I ended up buying one, I always thought they were overpriced for what they are made of. It will be interesting to see if someone else comes up with something.

    It's a long shot, but if you have a "Big Lots" store in your area, look around the cooler section for a cooler made out of a 6-7 gallon bucket (a little taller than 5 gallons, it takes the same lids). The ones I found say Coca Cola all over them, but you can take the liner out and use in another bucket if you want.

    That would be a very good idea if I can find one used. But they're about $55 plus tax for new ones. For another 3 bucks, I can buy a brand new Cool Bubbles insulated 5 gallon bait livewell which includes an aerator that runs 85 hours on 2 D batteries with a lid.

    I was thinking of the same, and decided on a narrow ice chest that I converted over with an aireator and bubbles as well...
