    Actually... it IS my home live bait tank! :wink::smile2: It's over 52 inches long. It has one end with sort of a "step" inside it. If I wished, I could partition off that corner with a piece of plexiglass, and have a live bait/tournament fish tank combo! :eek:oooh: I even left the mildew all over it to add to it's primitive character! Should hold five LARGE fish easily. I rigged up an aeration system for it today also.

    LOL! Yes Aaron, Chris has boots on. He welded all day and came here after work to load the tank. Preston, we removed the compressor and all the electric wires to lighten it up. The plastic liner is in excellent condition for now. I bought the old freezer for $7 at the scrap yard. They do make excellent home bait tanks. This summer when the weather was so hot, the water stayed nice and cool inside for the bait. Just close the lid and it's pretty well insulated.

    The frame has an insulated metal roof to keep us out of the elements. I have a tarp that I drop down on both sides also. I hope to eventually enclose most of it in with lexan, or some other transparent thick mil plastic. It's always a work in progress with my junk. It's also removable with four screws. It works and it's comfortable, and it makes people say... WT*? :eek:oooh:

    Bill that is a serious setup.

    Would be cool if you wrapped it also.

    Our old yahoo livewell debuted with flying colors. When we released our fish, they were as hardy as they were when caught. I saw numerous fish from "other" livewells float off down the canal. I'm SURE ours "could" hold up to a dozen 36 inch fish if necessary, with NO ill effects. I'll have to give us an A+++ on that addition. :smile2:

    What kind of aeration did you use? single, double aerators, bubble stones, etc....?

    I have a bilge pump lowered into the live well that pumps water through a plastic tube with slots in it, attached to the inside of the well with suction cups, that constantly showers the water in the well. Hope that makes sense. I'm so tired I can barely type today. Had a long, hard day today.
