    good looking setup. one question: how do you plan on keeping the water cool in the dog days of summer? As unique, but well thought out, your baitwell is I am sure you have some ideas, just wondering in case I want to rip them off :)

    If you go to yard sales, find you one of those 120 qt coolers, it works great in the summer, I use one to keep bait in during the summer till I transfer them to the boat, I picked one up for 5 bucks and it keeps the water at consistant tempurature sitting in my yard under a tree for a couple of days, I do add little ice everyday though just to keep the temp where I want it. I used to have a tote like what your using but I couldnt keep the water cool enough, If your going to keep it in your basement though it will probably be all you need.
