    If you can keep them in the lake nearby that is good. They do ok in a bait bucket in small numbers but you got to keep the water changed of they will die quick--those buggers will poop a lot and mess up the water-choke on their own waste. You are on the right track to getting better size fish. I agree with you, the stink bait produces small fish but good numbers. Good luck. A aerated and filtered system works best for all types of bait but gets expensive. PM Wylie Cat-- he has an excellent system for keeping 'gills. We love to fish bluegill for big channels and blues.
