Old Pal minnow buckets
Anyone know if they make them anymore or where to find them?
Are you speaking of the old galvanized steel buckets with the liner? If so, I haven't seen them around for a while. FWIW, I use a 24-can plastic cooler foir my minnow bucket. I feel that its way better than anything I have ever used before. It actually keeps the fish alive longer because the water does not heat up as quickly. When I am icefishing the cooler does not freeze inside.
Yeah galvanized buckets
I haven't seen any besides the one I have in years.
Found some on EBAY
I have one. And no it's not for sale. Try antique shops or flea markets. I have seen a couple here and there.
I like them and think they're cool.. but years of experience on the Texas coast trying to keep shrimp alive in 100 degree weather says that a proper aerator in the right size ice chest works best.
They can still be found, you just have to really look for them.
ETA: I don't think you can find new ones by Old Pal, but Frabill makes them.
