    I fish off a pontoon boat so I use a 100 gal rubber stock tank. I have a 7 gal bucket that has holes drill in it to hold my bait. It set in one end of the tank. I only fill it about 1/3 full. I don't have any pics yet I'm still working on the air pump.

    I use a 10 gal. Igglew water cooler. It is insulated and has no corners
    for shad to get stuck in. I drilled a hole in the top for my aerator.
