Stock Tank Live Well

Well here is my homemade live well made from a 100 gallon stock tank. I used a 100 gallon rubber made stock tank and a Tetra Wisper 60 gallon fish filter for this live well.

I took a 5 gallon bucket and drilled holes all around it and use that to hold my minnow’s when we go seine for them down at the creek. That also makes it easier to to get the minnows out and keeps them separate from the creek chums and little bluegill we keep for when we head to the river to go cat fishing.

To prevent the bait fish from jumping out I used a couple of pool noodles and 2 laundry bags for the top. I just bent them to shape and used bobby pins to hold the laundry bags and noodles to the shape I needed.

My buddy Dave just gave me a pool filter, so my next project is to turn a 275 gallon tank into a live well.
