Your local distributor might might be able to help. I'd guess they get back some damaged kegs. I'd suggest one of the big brewers in St. Paul but I think they've all gone to Milwaukee.

Try your local scrap yard. Also, use the Google for Sabco for legal used 1/2 barrel kegs.

If you don't have any luck with the keg, you might consider taking a sawzall to an old water heater. Use the bottom portion and you already have a tap and drain in it.

There are a lot of possibilities. An old propane tank, water expansion tank, compressor tank.

I looked on Ebay and to purchase a used keg with shipping there would run about $60.

water expansion tank, that is another possibility too......I checked ebay, did you see the 102 barrel wooden storage tank from Point Brewery in Stevens point? Man, if I had a basement that would hold that thing.

I think this is simple - go to liquor store buy keg - pay $12 deposit - keep keg

Jerkin'm I am located in Prior Lake, where abouts are you?

Sorry guys, but maybe we can have a beer bust another time. WE have deer camp (in Iowa)in less than two weeks and I would like to have this project done sooner than later. Don't get me wrong, I would love to have a project that involved getting a couple of kegs drank, but the bride would have serious problems if I started to let complete stangers back into the garage and help me drain a couple kegs, again smirk.gifsmirk.gifsmirk.gif

We use an old milk can. Drill a hole toward the bottom and put an on/off valve on it. Can draw water out as needed and a lot more heavy duty than keg.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
