I use a garbage can, works fine but is ugly, who here has a neat set up that is willing to show it and possibly give me an idea of how to fit one in the limited area that there is? Pictures or descriptions are appreciated. Thank you.

Kodiak 14 gallon livewell fits perfect between the cc and the reversible seat. Great in summers since it is under top. Will keep 18 pogies alive for a full day of fishing on the hottest of days.

I use a 10 gallon round, office type garbage can. It looks great, and is **almost** desert tan. Rule bilge pump mounted on an old spedo bracket on transom, 3/4" clear tube from pump to top of tank, 1" clear outflow from top of tank to engine well. (Plastic threaded nipples mounted to tank) gearbag shoulder strap holds it to stern lifting eye. Power connected to stern light with a quick connect. All parts break down into tank, using shoulder strap to carry. Works great...except at night :-)

I have a custom built 30 gallon Clearwater Bait Systems http://members.aol.com/jh6040/clearwater.htm with an integral Oxygen Edge system http://www.oxyedge-chum.com/Products.htm
I mount this where the cooler seat mounts.
With this system I can keep bait alive for weeks and when it gets hot I have active fresh bait. Don
