I have never seen a commercial one, like redmist said your probably gonna have to build one. We never used one just clean as we catch and freeze or put on ice.

If you are talking about a cheap live box for what you catch and not for bait this is what I used for a long time. Go to the Dollar Genral and buy a round laundry basket with the dome lid cut a hole in the top of the lid about 6" then zip tie the lid to the basket in about 3 places, next take a pool noodle run a rope through the center of the noodle and tie it around the top of the basket so it will float.The catfish will not get out of the hole the noodle will make it float above the water line.

Boat/cycle in Henderson has anything and everything for live boxes, traps and so on. I believe they have a website so if you Google them I bet you find it.

The one I use now came from Memphis Net & Twine,it has a draw string top I float mine with a pool noodle around the top hoop so as you catch you can drop the catfish in.

You could buy 1x1, 1x2, or whatever size wire at any hardware store, maybe feed store, and fasten it with hogrings or the clips for building rabbit cages. Very easy to make it however you want it.

^^ These work well. Can buy them or make them. I will be making one very soon.
