be that as it may, if you put a dark colored bucket on a boat deck in the
summer, aerated or not, you can kill everything in it in less time than
you'd think. or at least down here you can. i hate killing fish/shrimp for
no apparent reason.
even with a white bucket, too many times i've forgotten to stop every 15
minutes or so to change the water and ended up at the intended destination
with boiled fish.
besides, buckets are cheap, it's the lids i have a problem with.

while i'm whining about that, i ask again: anybody know where to get those
bait bucket lids?
