    Hey guys, there comes a point where a man has had enough, and I am to that point on bait tanks. I have built atleast 30 that for whatever reason or another, I just was un happy with. Is there anywhere in Ohio that you can buy them? I am not talking about a 300$ keep alive system, but just a good solid tank with no plumbing or anything, just the tank. I have to go to Cleveland on Wednesday for work, didn't know if there was anything between cincy and there. Dont want to spend more than 100$ or so, as I will be doing the aeration and filtration systems myself...Any help will be appreciated thanks

    Travis ... you can get a large hard rubber/plastic type at TSC (Tractor Supply Center) ... they have them from 50 gal to 110 gal ... I got 110 gal one for $65.00 ... There are several on her that have the same type ..... You can also buy reasonably priced pumps from Harbor Frieght Tools

    I had to work all weekend, so I will be back out on the water this weekend after a 2 week break....I would be lying if I said it wasn't nice to get away from the frustration for a while, but now I am ready to get back at it.

    Garry,

    I have seen the ones at TSC, but what I am looking for is a custom made white bait tank, that way all I have to do is add the plumbing. Just sick of fooling around with making them out of something else. I like the way they sell some that are already molded with a lid, that way I can add whatever and be done with it.

    One of my friends made one out of styrofoam, then fiberglassed the whole thing inside and out. He could keep 300 baits alive. He made it for a live well on his boat, and it is very light and insulated. I am going to make one this winter.
