    I am going to be building a livewell/baitwell in the front of my boat (about 50 gal) and would like to utilize it as a crossover system for big fish and baitfish by putting a divider of sorts in the middle. Has anyone on here used their livewell for bait or their baitwell for big cats? I will be using shad 99% of the time and occasionally keeping cats/eaters for a tournament or whatever. If so any pics?

    I put shad in my livewell once. I had one cover the outlet pipe and before I realized what was happening i has several inches of water in my boat. I now have a Grayline bait tank and love it.

    I was planning on building the baittank into the boat and using it occassionally as a live well as needed. How big of a livewell does a cat fisherman need for a tournament?
