Marine Metal Super Bait Saver
Bait saver 10 gallon livewell
I fish around East Central Florida saltwater and I like to use live bait, primarly shrimp, mullet and pilchards. My boat does not have a livewell and no option to plumb one either. This product seemed to be a good fit. I thought the price tag was more than what it was worth but the 5 gallon bucket with a bubbler was not enough.
The first two times out I thought the aerator was running to fast but it was keeping the baits alive and well. The third time out the aerator failed and heated up rapidly.
Marine Metal Products is a great company and they have been around forever I notified them of the issue and I recieved a new aerator withing two days free of charge. They said the manufacturer of the aerator motor had some issues?
Over all the aerator keeps the baits alive and well for a really long time. I also noticed that the baits keep there color longer and are still very lively even after they have been in the well for a while.
I would recomend this to anyone that is a true live bait fishing person without the option to have a circulating livewell built into there boat or if you are transporting live baits over a distance.

Simply Love it
I have the 10 gallon and I just love it. I can keep my castnet in it when it's not in use. I use it on my canoe and have used it as backup on my larger saltwater boat when the baitwell pump dield. If you have the room, go for the 20 gallon, the pump that it comes with can handle it. Just so nice the way all the pieces fit together, much better than rigging up a cooler or something. should last forever too. well worth the money IMO.

I got this size, not to use as a bait holder, but as a livewell for pan fish during the summer months. Works great. If I catch over my limit, I can still throw the smaller ones back in. I have a pontoon without a livewell and this works great

I think the bucket needs to be insulated to help keep water cooler.In hot weather ,adding ice to the water keeps the minnows alive much longer. If the cooler was insulated like some of the smaller buckets,ice would last a lot longer !
