I considered using the Frabill flowtroll minnow bucket but it seems a little big and clunky for my needs. I have heard it can cause your kayak to drag a bit too. I am thinking the best way would be to make one myself, I have heard of people using Gatorade bottles with holes in them and a string tied to it off the side of your kayak. I think I may try this, would this allow for adequate flow of fresh water? Any better suggestions? Thanks!

Some of the saltwater people make one from a length of PVC pipe of 3 or 4 inch diameter. They cap an end and add a screw on/off cap to the other. I've seen a type of drain 'head' used for one end. Holes of an appropriate size are drilled in the pipe as desired or needed.

The whole thing is attached to the yak with a length of rope attached to one end via a screw eye or just through a hole in the cap and knotting the rope.

YouTube should have a number of examples for ideas.

There are several others. Search 'kayak bait tube' on YouTube.
