    just made me a couple bait holders for gills and minnows. the first one is made from a cooler. much to big to carry down the banks and such but for the truck and garage it should work great.

    took a $6 bubble box and some tubing and got a $2 bobble stone and used marine adheasive to secure it to bottom. also attached a knife to it for easy access.

    drilled a whole through the side for the tubing and used the marine sealent/ adh to seal it.

    the big stone puts out more air than the small round one that came with the box.

    this one is a more portable one for moving bait around. took a clean 5 gal bucket and got an eliminator lid from cat connection. they are cool.

    put a bubble box on the side through bucket and sealed with marine seal/ adh. drilled a whole for the air line and sealed.

    attached the lid and filled with extra batteries and tackle.

    also attached a knife through bucket for this one too.

    Those are awesome Jeremy. One suggestion don't keep those hooks or those batteries in that 5 gallon buckets tackle box or both will be ruined.

    great idea once again jeremy.
    I've got a "transpoter" tank I made from a large plastic round plumbing container. I use it ti transport bait back to the house and to the fishing hole.
    I'll take some pics and post tomorrow.
