This bucket was designed 40+ years ago & gets called by many names, it was designed to be dragged along behind your boat / kayak to keep your live baits (be they fish, prawns, sand eels, crabs etc) in pristine condition.
There is a facebook article calling it a "COURGE" this is just an old west country word for a floating box/crate which was left on the moorings to keep live shrimps fresh & alive

No need for an air pump as the water circulates all the time you are pulling it along. When you stop the livebait bucket stands up like a self cocking float  due to the "Stabilizing keel" (a lead block / weight set in the bottom) design which keeps the "FLOTERITE" trolling bucket upright when not being towed.
The "flow-through hole" design keeps bait alive & healthy for longer as they get a constant supply of well oxygenated water & at the same temperature at which the livebait will be used therefore avoiding temperature shock when the livebait hits the water.
Easy opening door for one hand operation which is held shut while being towed by a Kevlar spring on a nylon pivot, therefore nothing to rust or corrode.

This piece of kit has been on the market since the 70's, copied many times but never bettered.

Mounting holes provided for attaching a battery-operated aeration pump when moving from place to place at high speed or transporting live bait to and from the boat.

(Please note:- "do not use a battery air pump when the bucket is in the water").
Use bungee cord to secure the trolling livebait bucket to the boat to absorb the shock when towing, not essential when in a Kayak (a rope will do) as the "pull away" is far slower.

As you can see from the pictures below which were sent in by a customer this livebait bucket is also a must when wading and targeting bass from the shore or even just rock hopping, the FloteRite trolling bucket can be laid in larger rock pools (with no fear of baits escaping) to replenish oxygenated water when not able to reach the open sea below.
