I'm talking CC boats in the 30'-40' range, Yellowfin, Seavee, Contender, Invincible, Jupiter ect....
Assuming that factory bait tanks don't do a very good job of keeping our bait too happy.
Are West Coast guys modifying the factory tanks or installing West Coast tanks?
Considering a CC in the low 30' range, and the bait tank thing is holding me back.

    The center console brands you listed are all very reputable fishing machines and so their bait system is first class too! You will find insulated oval shaped bait tanks to circulate the water and bait, blue gelcoat walls and clear polymer lids to calm the bait, directional and flow volume control nozzles, and many of the newer models have pressurized lids to prevent bait slosh when running in choppy waters. Happy hunting!

    clevel, not being a jerk here, but do have experience with those EC bait tanks?
    Yup, I looked at many and i bought a new 2018 Cobia center console with an excellent bait tank. Made in Florida.

    At 30' and longer, I think those boats hold even our baits quite well. None of the guys I've seen who have brought over boats that long also put in aftermarket bait tanks.
