Ok guys this may sound weird.I am currently using an old fridge to keep my bait and I can only keep about 30 bags and I want to keep more for hard times .Would it be possible to cut the bottom of freezer out and make the freezer freeze the entire box ?I m thinking it will work but it will burn up motor.Any opinions are appreciated.

get a small chest frezzer one bout 3-4 cu ft, in the long run it will cheaper in electric. if you cut the bottom out of your unit, you may hit some hardware and lose the unit all together, also in cutting you have exposed the insulation you will need to put a patch over the exposed insulation to help maintain the seal. I would go to sears or a appliance shop and check out the chest frezzer and price them first, i have seen them as low a $125.

The bottom of the freezer has not only cooling coils under the plastic and or metal, if equipted, it also contains the defrost coils on "frost free" models.
Try one of the "rent to own" stores. I found a dented up one a few years back for free. They hauling to the landfill.
