Default Minnow Bucket

I , like many others , have a prob. keeping minnows alive , in the warmer temps . I have come up with a system that helps . They make soft freezer packs . Take the freezer packs and freeze them over a laid down coffee can . I put my minnow bucket in a 5 gal. bucket . Then slide the freezer packs between the minnow bucket and the 5 gal. They , the freezer packs , won't usually last all day , but they most certainly keep your minnow bucket water cooler . THAT helps minnows last longer .

Just my idea , that I thought I would share .

Frozen water bottles work equally as well. And for livewells, frozen 2 liter bottles
Is "basstiality" the same as sleeping with the fishes?

I prefer to Die on my feet than Live on my knees

2sac is not bassalarro material.

That's exactly what we do on our week long trips. Good reuse of water bottles before recycling. And after a day or so you can get a rotation going (some always in the freezer and ready)

Dropping a cheap aquarium pump/bubbler really helps with overnight storage as well.

Changing water often (at least 50% once a day) goes a long way as well.
