Canoe & Livewell Question

Recommended Posts

We bought a three-person canoe in January and have fished from it several times this year at Lewisville Lake (Pelican Dakota 15.5 ft.).  We are keeping it simple -- paddles and no electronics -- the way it was done for millennia.  

 

I'm curious -- what do others with canoes, kayaks, or jon boats, do for the livewell situation?  Tow a stringer behind the boat?  Five-gallon bucket?

I've seen folks convert large capacity coolers into livewells, plus there are livewell kits for jons.  Google it and you will probably get some ideas for what might work in a canoe.

 

Canoes aren't typically tournament watercraft where you need to retain your catch alive for a period of time so livewells for canoes isn't a frequent topic in this forum.  I imagine folks in canoes that are keeping their catch probably do tow a stringer alongside the boat (assuming there are no toothy critters around to eat the catch :lol:).  Otherwise, some folks probably dispatch their catch and put on ice.

 

I fish exclusively from a canoe and have the biggest livewell of all...I remove the fish from the hook and put it back in the lake... ;)

Likewise, except my canoe fishing isn't exclusive.
