    here is one of many bait tanks we use.. this one is made from a 120 gal. cooler that someone dumped in my yard:confused2:..... we used a bilge pump from walmart.. then hooked a hose thats about 1 inch to it. then we put some holes in it and used some small hose barbs i think they are 1/4 or 5/16 in size.. this will circulate the water and keep bait alive for a very very long time as long as you keep it cool.. we put ice in to cool the water.. i have seen kits for theese at bass pro but the way we did it was about half the cost of what they wanted for the kit... ok so it doesn't want to up load my pics for some dumb reason???? someone want to help?

    I have a bait tank that is almost the same as that but I used a 5 gallon bucket for my short trips and a bigger cooler for the over night trips I bought a battery lighter kit that has the red and black jumper cable clips that I hook up to a small ridding lawn mower battery and I find that it does work very very well at keeping them lively.
