Will update after first run this weekend.

The $6 four inch bubble aerator stone from the pet store works really well--much better than the cheapo tiny bubble stone/sponge in the Frabill kit.

Worked better than expected
Shad (Threadfin) survived 40minutes in the bait well
Blue gills did great all day in there.

That's awesome. Thanks for the update. Was curious how bait would hold up in the heat.

Did some night fishing night time temps in the high 70s; but I did have a frozen water bottle just in case

I’m really liking the idea of dropping lines and then going bass fishing (just made some pvc float/jug lines)
May have to post another DIY thread on those

It would be like fishing in 15 places all at the same time.

Added another set of handles—two for carrying and the other two for ratchet tie downs

That's awesome. I might have to make one of those.

Did you happen to fill the void between the two buckets?

I thought about filling the void with spray foam or a bunch of silicone. But, I wanted to be able to separate them just in case. Figured there might be a circumstance where having an extra bucket might be handy.

I used the generic Wmart white buckets in the paint section. They fit very snuggly and are difficult to separate
