I need some advise on whether to buy the tanks with white interior or blue. I am considering taking out the one in front of my center console voyager tritoon and the one in the rear center and putting 50 gallon oval tanks from Sunshine in their place...that would give alot of fish/bait storage....then use a 40 gal one I made from a white plastic drum for a purge tank..I am in the process of rigging this boat for Texoma...

Some blue sky paint on the ceiling of porches will also help keep bugs out off the wood and keep it looking clean.

I think the blue is worth the money.  I have read articles that talk about that color reducing the bait's stress.

I'm sure George is very busy but he'll take the time.  All he'll do is put more work on Bandit.  [smile]

I never heard the blue paint thing on the ceiling.   That's cool.

I do know that service stations used to paint bathrooms red because it makes people spend less time in there.  [smile]

Green is the worst color for a public bathroom.  People get comfortable with the green and stay too long.  [smile]

George told me he is going to blue on all tanks. I am going to buy the 40 gal oval with removable filter box..18.5 inches tall and have a cushion made for the top for a seat..he said he can put the drainhole wherever I want it and I can use the drain system that is on my boat..I may even replace the one in my rear....

Hey Guys
Just got a good deal on a 30 gal Greyline bait tank. It only has the filtering system. My question is do I need to add the aerator on the bottom of the pickup tube or will the drop of the water from the filtering system be enough to aerate the tank?

How many baits are you wanting to carry? Unless you are going to try and carry a whole bunch, the one pump should be plenty. I have a Greyline and it has never been a problem for me.

I'm thinking 50-60 shad. I go to the coast sometime and will be keeping shrimp, croaker etc.
Guess your saying if I don't crowd it up it should be fine?
Thanks for your input.

Bruiser, I sent you an email.  Your 30 gallon tank will easily carry 125 - 150 shad.  I've had 200 in mine and they lasted all day...well, the ones that didn't get eaten did.  [smile]

Salt water you'll be fine as well.  When I go down there, I don't use my bait tank.  I use the live well on the boat.  I put the shrimp and croaker in one of the yellow/white live bait buckets you can get at Academy.

When under power, the bait buckets sit in the live well.  When I get to where I want to fish, I let them overboard.

Use a white rope for shrimp and a black rope for croaker, piggy perch etc. so I can tell what's in what.
