Fish holding tanks are required for any fisherman that wants to preserve their catch alive until he gets home. They are also suitable for holding live bait. The tanks do not need filtration systems or heaters like home aquariums because they are only temporary enclosures. They can be made using simple materials such as a plastic cooler, a portable air pump, an air stone and some plastic tubing.
Fill the cooler with water from wherever you’re fishing from. If it’s a lake, use the lake water. If you’re on the ocean or a bay, then use that water. The water must match wherever the fish is taken from.
Attach one end of the airline tubing to the output (where the air is expelled) of the air pump. The airline tube typically squeezes over a thin air spout that acts as the pump’s output. Make sure it is a secure fit.
Attach the other end of the airline tubing to an air stone. Air stones are porous rocks that produce bubbles when air is forced through them.
Place the air stone in the cooler water and activate the pump. Air will begin flowing through the water, oxygenating it for fish.
