Default Thought I should Answer You

What I will be doing with it is having in the boat this fall for redtails and creek chubs. I want to take the minnows from my aeration tank system in the shop to a tank in the boat leaving them there while I fish and then bringing them back to the aeration system in the shop. Currently I four five gallon pails of water in the box of my pickup in which I put flow troll minnow buckets into while transporting, then when on the lake fill the livewell and put the flow trolls into the livewells for the day of fishing. Any suggestions is appreciated.

For other baits like trout, fatheads, shiners, etc. that circular flow may be too much and stress them. If not keeping shad/herring, the current greyline design would be the best of the 3 (and the least effective at keeping shad, unless you add another pump to make the flow circular).

The best answer is, what you need depends on what kind of bait you are keeping, how many, and how long you need to keep them.

Superbait tank by Ron Vest in my opinion is the best, Keeps shad alive for days.
