And I do mean TANK!!!!! Bought the pump for my upcoming bait tank, the tank I keep at home for the leftover bait and fresh caught.

We had a discontinued 3000gph pond pump(this thing can move some serious water!) that we had for a while, I found it at the end of summer and just now purchased it. Regular for $280.....guess how much I got it for? This is awesome......$2.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! plus tax.....lol

Next, the big rubbermaid for Tractor Supply.

DONT go down that road man..lol

Big bait tanks are good..but like everything else in catting are addicting as heck..trust me;)

3000gph..are you nuts? "this thing can move some serious water!' well no kidding...you could keep stream trout alive with that thing..lol
After you got your HOME tank set up...you need a transport tank...a nice 150qt igloo cooler with a 750GPH pump works great..also need a smaller one like a 48qt with a 500GPH pump too;)
A work buddy named Rod Neil got into cattin a few years ago..i helped him out with his transport tank..using a deep cycle trolling battery ive kept bait alive for 3 days in mine..his is a 125 igloo and works great..heres the link to his bait tanks http://www.angelfire.com/sc2/catfish/Page912.html
Now he did mess up on the pump hes got when he did this page..its a 750GPH pump like mine..not a 750 gallons per min. geez!
If you wanted a big tank like his(he says its 350 gals. i say more like 375-400 gals.?) but i can get ya the same tank CHEAP..just let me know..plus a great deal on all kinds of other plastic tanks(all shapes, sizes, ect.) CHEAP!! like 55 gal. plastic drums(great shad tanks)
I dont use my 275 gal. tank all that much any more(i go through a LOT of bait fast), but if i were to buy a new one from a store..the plastic rubbermaids are the ones i'd buy..very heavy duty tanks and come in lots of sizes! Tractor supply is the place for them.

Sounds like a very good set-up...I was going to shoot for something like that this year, but I am just going to stick with cut-bait, for all my fishing now.

WOW what a pump. Use it in a 55 gal barrel and you will have some strong fish trying to swim with the current that will produce. LOL

I didn't get a chance to build a bait tank but I will try it this year.

I already have my fish transport tank. The 55 gallon rubbermaid I built late last season. Used a 650gph livewell pump, homemade spray bar and filter for the inlet. This thing is titz.....

Next I will build a 30 gallon size for the boat, this way I can bring plenty of larger baits and bring fish back.

Scott, since you're not going to deliver the no-rolls:rolleyes: :eek: I'll bring my 55 with me........it's art!!! I still can't believe you don't deliver:cool: :p
