Years ago, bait buckets used to be made from galvanised steel, and many tackle shops still sell these, but most modern-day anglers have moved over to hard plastic bait buckets. There are other styles and options available to make your fishing more efficient and convenient. Here's a quick overview:

A two-bucket design: This, as the name suggests, is a combination of an outer and inner bucket. The traditional lift out bait bucket has an outer hard plastic bucket with an inner liner that fits inside. The inner liner often has a perforated bottom, allowing the angler to lift the liner out of the bucket which removes the water, making it easier to select the bait fish. Anglers can also keep bait fresh and lively by placing the inner bucket liner in the lake or off a dock as a holding container. Other features may include notches, holes and clips for holding dip nets, air hoses, aerators and pliers.

Trolling buckets: Trolling style buckets are ideal when trolling for fish as they pull easily behind your boat or in the current when wading. The weighted keel design keeps the bucket from rolling over and positions the self-closing bait door floating face up for easy access to your bait. The trolling bucket constantly aerates the bait as it moves through the water.

Insulated bait buckets: By combining a foam liner and the durability of a moulded plastic outer bucket, you have the best portable container for baitfish. The inner liner keeps baitfish cool during the warm months and it also reduces the danger of freezing of your bait water in colder temperatures. If you need to store baitfish for several days, you can add a battery powered aerator keeping the water oxygenated.
