    Im sure any box or barrel with enough weight would work. Just remember when you pull that hog out, all of his fry (babies) are vulnerable. If its a private lake and you are trying to preserve your panfish populations, you know what to do.

    i saw some homemade ones on a fishing show that were made out of big 18-24 inch pvc pipe with a cap glued on one end and holes drilled in it so it would sink better. saw the same thing made out of stainless schedule 40 pipe with a blind welded on one end. you would never have to worry about either of them rusting.
