Default live bait well

Talk to me about live bait wells.I think it is time!

What is the best brand;best size;round or oval,etc,

The well I would need would have to be portable.Space is not a huge issue.I would be using it for Macks,herring,etc.for Stripers and Tuna.

Also,any good ideas to get power to the stern section of boat for the pump.A simple terminal block with clips just doesn't seem appropriate....Ideas???

If you want to try one before you make the full expenditure u tube has some videos on making your own. It also shows features to look for.

As to power I would recommend a waterproof male connector on the inside rear hull with internal wire running to the fuse block protected by its own inline fuse.

Sounds like you want something that's not permanent. Your best bet is go go with a plastic tank.

You will want a Round or Oval shaped tank.

Capacity/size will depend on the amount of bait you want to keep. Also, some bait is more fragile than others and you will need more water per bait to keep them alive.

Finally, get a good pump and battery to keep the fresh water flowing.

I will second the Kodiak. I have used several different sizes and they all work great.
