Seen the head boat with these. Looking for a floating box, with water circulation holes, I can store my bait in. White leggers, greens in a floating box at the dock. 

 

Did a Google, and SOL search and nothing came up. Anyone here know what there called, and where they can be purchased?

 

Thanks for looking

Lou T

Usually called lobster totes, about the same size as a regular tote but with a foldable plastic top.

Use that or a heavyweight version of that. Drill holes, add rope handles and zip tie pieces of a pool noodle to the sides.

We use a 55 gallon plastic drum and dip net with a long handle (broom stick with net zip tied on the end) for spot.

 

 

Crabs go inside the drum in a smaller plastic box or cage with a rope.  Voila

Hey Lou if you are looking for something smaller try the promar seal proof bait cage ac-300 can hold about 10 -20 crabs depending on size
