I have 2825 Kingfisher offshore that I want to start tuna fishing with this summer out of Illwaco. Currently it has no bait tank installed. What would you recommend for the model and brand of tank. Preferred installer ? Does anyone make one self contained with pumps, pipes etc that you strap on the offshore bracket and go? Thanks for the help. Probably want it on offshore bracket to save on deck space.

I have a Defiance 50 gallon. Great tank for anchovies and probably other baits. But I have only had anchovies in it. Lots of guys chasing Albacore using Defiance bait tanks in the northwest.

Installs are fairly easy. But you’ll need a good game plan. I would suggest getting on the northwest board and start there for install tips.
Ask a lot of questions. I did.

Good Luck.

Where are you located? Contact Bluewater Bait Systems, Pacific Edge, TowerFab (Tom), and West Coast Bait Tanks. Not given in any order.

For install, I highly recommend Joe at (760)822-5025. He'll come to your location as well (assuming you're southern California). Fair price, clean job, NO COMPLAINING (do you know how many salty pros bitch about working on boats?)
