Default Pics or diagram of your herring tank

Hello All,

Just finishing up redoing my 23' aluminum fishing boat. I live in Athens NY near the Hudson River and need some help making a 55 gal or bigger herring tank for the upcomming season. I kow the concept but can't quite put it to finished product without spending boo-koo bucks on a premade one which I would prefer not to do. Pics or a diagram or a inperson look at your tank would be great. Also looking for someone to go striper fishing on Mondays (day off from the railroad) this season.

Thanks

Jason Allen

Thanks Jim

Do you have some more info on the the bait shop in Redbank?

Mondays are great for me. LMK when you would like to come up. Maybe we can get a couple of forum dudes together for breakfast and a all day fishing hoo-rah

Oh by the way if anybody in the hudson river area knows where to get a decent 55 gal drum or has a diagram or pics or a invite to see your bait tank setup and I will pay for dinner ( wink wink ) .

If you do go to the shop in Red Hook, don't expect great conversation. The guy can be a bit unfriendly, but I think he just doesn't like to talk much. He used to sell live herring and I bought dozens of them off of him over the years. He used to keep them in an old stainless steel milk tank.

After I made mine from an empty 55 gallon plastic drum, I came up with the idea of using a 55 gallon garbage can. To make the tank you'll need a ninety degree fitting for the bottom of the tank, a straight thru-hull fitting for the top of the tank, hose, and a bilge pump and some waterproof silicone caulking. Drill a hole on the side of the tank about two inches up from the bottom and silicone in your 90 degree fitting facing to the left of the tank. Next drill a hole about two inches down from the top on the opposite side of the tank and install the thru-hull fitting. By putting them on different sides, you'll be sure to get the circulation you want to have that the herring will swim against. You'll need a length of hose long enough to get the water coming out the top fitting over the side of the boat. You'll want to get a decent size bilge pump ( Walmart has a 1200 GPM for $35) and connect the out let on the pump to the 90 degree fitting with a length of hose. Remember to make the hose long enough to reach over the side of the boat and be submerged by about a foot. Here's where the high GPM bilge comes in- although they advertised at "X" GPM, the farther away from the source you get, the lower that number. For instance with the 1200 that I bought it states on the package that at the nozzle it's 1200 gpm, but just three feet away it drops to 900. My 55 gallon takes SEVERAL minutes to fill up with a 900 GPM rated pump. BTW, the River Basin in Catskill has the fittings you need. Also, what kind of boat do you have? What size is the outboard?

You do not really need a Spa for the Herring.55 gallons ?How many herring are you going to hold?I have a 29gal.Built into the boat.
Remember a gallon of water weighs 8.34 lbs per gal.Times that by 55
an extra 458 lbs in the boat.A gallon of gas is 6.5 lbs x20 gal=130 lbs
588 lbs and not a herring in the tank.
Just my 2 cents.
We keep 10 to 15 herring to start and then go jig or net some more.
