Welcome to all the long standing UB members, new members and "lurkers" alike. We can all agree we are here or reading this because of our common ground love of fishing. Some of us have worked really hard to get the nicer things we have today such as equipment and boats, while others are content with their current setups or just getting into our hobby. This thread my friends is dedicated to the Average Joe and beginners to help show off some of your homemade or budget build equipment that works well for your needs, or to get ideas on making your next outing easier. Hey, even the big dogs have all started where we are at, so no shame and have fun.
For starters, I just made a portable livewell out of 25qt Igloo cooler. Works great and I can remove it from the boat when not needed. Runs on either 2 D batteries, a wall adapter or car 12v adapter. Total cost: 60 bucks.
