I've got 3 large (I think 15-20gal) round Gott coolers. They were thrown out because the spigots are busted. They're very well insulted, and I use a smaller one for minnows. It will keep minnows alive for 2-3 days with a bubbler.
I want to convert one of the large ones to an aerated bait tank for shad. Anyone done something similar? Design suggestions? Any specifics problems to avoid?
Any input would be appreciated, especially pics. Thanks!

I have never been able to keep shad alive. I've tried a lot of different things: continuous flow-through aeration, circular tanks, ice, oxygen tabs, live well additives etc. Nothing worked. You'd be better off putting your shad on ice and saving those cooler-live wells for bluegill or other baits.
