Default Need live well - Without a live well

ISSUE: Boat we just bought did not come with a live well (52 Viking). We knew that. So no comments to that effect please.

CONCERN: We fish the eastern GoM, and we do use live bait on occasion. Obviously need a live well.

QUESTION: What is a viable non-permanent solution for a live well?

I've seen the circular ones used in Hatteras/keys and elsewhere. I don't want to add extra thru hull(s) or more plumbing under the deck. Just something "portable" but with sufficient capacity (say 30gal) to keep some live bait kicking for the gulf fishing we do (Pinfish, threadfins, runners etc)

Thanks and look forward to inputs.
