Yeh, they can be pricey and some of the staff in the fishing dept leaves a little to be desired. I rarely buy anything there. I usually just go in to look around and try to ease any jonesing for fishing.

frank, thats good to know thanks! i think i heard the guy say may right?

if it's any concelation i saw a pretty cool portable battery powered aerator yesterday. don't know much about them but this was fairly small & clipped right to the side of a pail. wonder if a bucket with an aquarium pump would do the job? it would need an adaptar to be used in the truck i guess.

the guy said June to me.


they wont last long at all in a 5 gal bucket, need something bigger they want to swim in circles and they need a ton of oxygen, I know of somewhere else to get herring but it's tough to get to when I ususally don't leave for the water until 8 or 9 at night and they are not around the corner from my house

yeah that makes sense frank. guess they cant survive with all that slime. what about a cooler? the kind with the little thing on the bottom to drain the water? you could change the water by letting some out & replacing??

never fished a live herring in my life. looking to make this year the 1st.

water change is important, the ammonia builds up, you want a container with round corners, the idiots will drown swimming into the corners

he basic proble is that they can be more woork then they are worth unless you have the right place to go with them this spring

I think Chris is on the right track. What if you had an aquarium at home, in the garage or basement, just for this? It may hold them until you set out, maybe even for a few days. It doesn't have to be fancy. Even a big rubbermaid tub or little kiddie pool, with a big air pump ($30-$40) would work. Then you could use the battery pump on the beach or wherever.

Ain't nothing like a custom rod

IF you're going to be using the bait fish right around where you net/catch them, a 5 gal bucket with hole drilled into it works well...like a floating fish-pen. Lid needed of course

Those 2 D-cell aerators work ok to keep killies or snappers alive in a bucket. I like to keep about 6 snappers in a bucket. Have kept up to around 10, but more really starts to get their mortality rate up. Peanut bunker don't last all that long either. I have kept some snappers, spearing, "jack"-looking things, cigar minnow, etc alive even during the summer though. Just keed to change the water occassionally and I'll chuck in a frozen water bottle too. A round tub and bigger aerator works much better though.

nope, not here

we used to use sabiki rigs in Florida and live lined herring type baitfish to the barracuda's, wire leaders and freshwater bass tackle, tons of fun
