Dave, you can install a removeable transom mounted pump (Aquaworld), and wire it to a dash switch, with a Perkos quick connect in the stern for easy removal. Using a free standing bait tank, bungeed in, with both intake and discharge at the top of the tank, have the discharge go directly to the splashwell.
Your intake tubing should be 3/4 ID, and the discharge should be at least 1-inch ID. This should compensate for the pressure from the pump.
I used a 15 gallon, circular, white plastic trash can for the bait tank, with a standard bucket top.
Everything comes out easily, except for the dash wiring and the transom bracket.
