I first started Bass Fishing last year, first year to have a running boat, and to be back on the water since I was 10 years old. Most of the time I just wanted to get to know the lake, then I got into Bass fishing. This winter I have been reading and trying to get into Catfishing. I've gotten some catfishing rods and reel combos, since my bass poles weren't durable enough. My work got one of those popcorn tins, the one where you get 3 type of popcorn in, and I was thinking about sealing it up and using it as a livewell for bait fish, since my boat doesn't have a livewell. Would that be big enough and just put on one of the battery or 12 volt Mr. Bubbles in and to hold bait fish? My next question is I've heard that skip jack and other baitfish cut are the best. How does everyone get their bait fish, and how much bait do you keep in your livewell? I'm guessing a jig on crappie/bass may take up to much time to get all the bait you need. I saw cast nets, and how well do they work? To me it seems once the net hits the water, the fish below may swim away before the net touches the bottom to trap them. Then also once your ready to get off the water, what do you do with the cut up pieces? Do you throw them in the water for some fish to have a lucky meal, or do you throw them away at the docks to keep the lake looking clean?
