Has anyone purchased the carry on livewell available for sport and installed it on a Montauk?
I am curious if it will easily attach to the railing with the supplied strap.

A $489 bait bucket?? I'll let someone else try that out for me.

Yes I think over 400 bucks is ridiculous also.
What is everyone's favorite portable livewell solution?
I am thinking of just putting a battery powered pump on a cooler.

Both me and my Lake Lanier fishing partner have Keep Alive brand units. His is the 15 gallon and mine is the 20. Neither of us have had any problem keeping several dozen baits alive.

For small fishing outings (pulling up a little bait on a sabiki), I use a battery-powered aerator clipped on a bucket.
For more serious fishing, I use the removable Kodiak baitwell that came with my 1995 Outrage 21, with a transom-mounted pump. Kodiak used to be owned by Larry Wilkin, who sold the company to a conglomerate but kept producing baitwells and accessories on his own. He's near me in Southern California in Simi Valley, and did a nice job repairing my damaged tank a couple of years ago. He has some portable tanks on his website that might be worth checking out:

I accidently saw dealer cost on the nearly $500 bait bucket today--$293 dollars.

I think I will look into kodiak, keepalive or aquaworld tanks.
I have an idea of running a new wire to the stern bilge area and hooking into the auxiliary switch for power. I have an 04 Montauk. If I can find a quick disconnect, this might be my solution.

You can build your own out of an old cooler, bilge pump, and tubing.

"Carry on Live well"
I once had a wise person tell me this was exactly how I should live my life... the best advice I've ever received.

I saw the [infamous] BW baitwell at my dealer today.
1/2" thick clear (lucite? Lexan?) cover with the Whaler emblem engraved in it, nice switch for aerate/pump out, quality weather proof power connector to a wired cigarette lighter plug in. Thick sidewalls on the bucket. Rule 500 gph pump.
Even for $500, that is one *nice* bait bucket.
