I decided to try something different when it came to a live bait well for my kayak. I had already made the PVC tube and that was a pain to drag in the water when paddling. Couldn't put it in the kayak for too long since all the shrimp would die from no water. So I made this with 2 large plastic jars. One has no holes and can hold a little bit of water and then put the slightly smaller one in that one when paddling to a different location (also can clip the aerator on the outside of the larger one to keep bait fresher longer). The smaller jar has lots of holes for water flow. I clip it to my anchor trolley ring while I am fishing. I heated up a 16d nail with a torch an punctured the jar in a ton of places. It doesn't take up a ton of space and the bait stays fresh and basically just cost me my time to make (while I was having a yard sale) I am all about making stuff on the cheap but only if it looks pretty decent. What have you guys done for your live bait wells?

That's sweet. We use peanut butter jars in a similar way to hold leeches when I go fish the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in northern Minnesota.
