      Hi Rob! Water was 10'. They were suspended about 5 or 6'. I made the floating livewell using a basket, pool noodle and some zip ties. Quick, easy project ...more that has proved useful.

      Thanks Frank! I know YOU know what it's like when you're fishing for bass and end up with a big, toothy predator on the end of your line. A few extra minutes ...more are required to make sure you leave with all your fingers...and your lure!
