I've got a 26,000 gallon test tank that works pretty good. Only thing is my wife gets kinda mad when I'm testing crankbaits and she's trying to swim. She gets pretty mad when I snag her bikini top:eek:

Jed,

You can buy a 10' aluminum feed trough from most feed supply stores for about $150.00. They are around 3' wide and two feet deep. They are self contained, no need for a frame or anything, just fill it up and you are set. A friend of mine even has fish in his to see how they react to lures,he's also crazy, but it's still not a bad idea;)

Fatfingers,

Yep, that's what I use. Works great in the winter months. The only problem is the weight. My shop is on the third floor of a warehouse. I do get a little nervous that one day I'll come in and there will be a hole in the floor :whistle:

Rightly so Joe, that thing weighs more than 1.5 tons, full of water. But ware houses should be designed to take heavy loads. That is what they are for.
