My brother and I have been using five gallon buckets with Marine Metal Hush Bubble Water Resistant Air Pump as live wells for many years. One thing has always bothered me about this set up. The air tubing always gets in the way as it is draped over the inside of the bucket to supply air to the air stone. I finally fixed the issue! Also I purchased a little net Frabill 3047 Floating Dip Net that we should have been using for years!
