New for 2016, Frabill’s Model 4825 Aerated Bait Bucket holds 1.3 gallons (5.2 quarts) and offers anglers a smart alternative to clip-on aerators without having to move up in size to the 6-Gallon Aqua-Life Bait Station.
The Plano, Illinois-based company says that now anglers have the option of a top-performing bait with built-in lid aerator but in a smaller footprint – great for bank fishing and reducing clutter in any watercraft.
Also, given increasing invasive species regulations, anglers are becoming more conservative with how they utilise live bait. It’s now common to keep several oxygenated bags of minnows on the ready in a cooler, only breaking them open as needed.
Frabill adds that its new Model 4825 Aerated Bait Bucket is the perfect container for this kind of fishing.
It also conveniently fits into most consumer refrigerators to extend bait life even longer for multi-day fishing trips – or just keeping bait on the ready.
“We wanted to design a bait bucket that would give anglers of all kinds a smart, one-stop way to keep bait lively and fresh, but in a smaller footprint. We also wanted to make the product more user-friendly, moving away from the need for a clip-on aerator,” says Frabill design engineer, Tim Makos.
“Additionally, the built-in lid aerator was designed from the ground up for years of solid, quiet and bulletproof performance. The motor is both quiet and powerful, but in a scaled down footprint,” adds fellow Frabill design engineer, John Whalen.
Features also include an insulated liner to keep water temperature stable, a built-in compartment for lid-housed aerator and two or four AA battery operation.
