    ok im a tight wad i made this kitty crate out of a old milk crate added pool noodles to float it framed top and coverd with plastic screen wire added one hing for top opening right in the middle made a latch so fish couldent flip it open and flop out added a rope handle to carry it added a long pece of rope to tie it of so it cant float away
    ok i hade the old crate laying around
    had scrap plastic screen laying around
    had rope laying around
    so all i got in it is 75cents for a pool noodle
    hope this tip saves a few of you tight wads a doller as well:wink:!!!!!!!!!

    Hey it is a good idea for bait fish as well as catches. I can modify you idea a little and preserve my bluegill better throughout the evening of fishing. Thanks!
