    That all depends on what you want to spend. If I were you and had the extra money, id check out some of the tanks offered by some of the BOC sponsors. They offer some that are really nice, many different price ranges and would fill anyones needs im sure. rspd507

    Check out Gray Line bait tanks or Blue Water bait tanks, those are some of the best out there. Get your wallet!$$$$$:big_smile:

    You can get you a big drum barrel, and put a good ariator in it, it works really good as a live well

    Creek bait tanks are the best there is. Plus what makes them so much better then the rest is there simple to take care of.

    Styrafoam holds oxygen better than most any material plus is easier to maintain a constant temperature. It would be nice if you could get a float used on old docks and attached it to half plastic barrel. It would be good if you could seal it and pressurize to that of about 8 ft of water so they wouldnt hemmorage also.

    No problem. Hey get with Steve Brown he has owned them all. I'm sure he can tell you the difference between them. I don't have room in my current boat for an after market bait tank. I wish it did because the one thats built in kind of sucks. I guess thats enough reason to get a new boat right?

    Creek bank is by far the best tank on the market. you can get by with the other brands, but if Your serious about keeping live shad, start with the best and just cough up the dough for a creek bank

    I usually just throw it on ice and cut it up as I fish with it.

    I LOVE my 30 gallon Sunshine/Grayline bait tank. Don't use it too much anymore since shad have become so hit and miss on the river around here......
