Aerobait Aerated Bait System
Cheaper in the long run
I just got the 7 quart aerated bait system about a month ago and I would recomment it to, especially crappie anglers who are tired of reaching out of the boat to get a minnow every 30 seconds.
I can get my bait the night before my trip, and be on the lake early in the morning before the bait shop opens. I've done it, and haven't lost one minnow. The 1 D cell battery seems to never run down. I ran mine for well over 24 hours straight and it still has plenty of juice. They are insulated as well, and as long as you keep the lid on they'll stay alive in 90 degree weather.

Aerobaits are excellent.
I've used a 7 Qt. Aerobait for close to 20 years, I guess.
It is the best bait bucket I've ever used and worth every penny paid.
When I finally needed to replace some parts on it (after many, many hours of service), the manufacturer sent me an entire mechanical assembly that was easily replaced instead of sending the individual parts that I ordered, which would have required much more work to replace.
This assembly included several more parts than I ordered, but they didn't charge me any extra.
My fishing partner dubbed it the "African Queen" because of the way it just keeps on chuggin' along.
A few years ago I added a second 7 Qt. Aerobait to my collection of equipment. It is known as the "African Queen II".
I expect many more years of great service from them.

Ok at best
I bought this product to fish in south Louisiana. It's basicaly a foam lined 5 gallon bucket with a built in aerator in the bottom. The first time I tried to use it wouldn't aerate, turned on but no bubbles. Had to leave minnows in bucket and attach my bubble box. Seems like a goo product design but poor execution. Also a lot of reviews said it quit working once got wet, which is inevitable in a boat, would not recommend for salt water due to corrosion. Also battery box has a screw on lid so required a flat head

Good bait bucket, lots of room
Hello fellow fishermen. Pros: Design and internal space of bucket. The Aero bait system keeps all parts concealed avoiding rust and having to move tubes and stones around. Lots of room in 5 gallon for live bait as big as pinfish to swim around. Con: Initially it appears as if the aeration system is not providing enough oxygen as it is not diffused like from the stones, but a single stream of full air bubbles, but kept my bait alive for hours nonetheless. Overall, proud of purchase, worth the money.
