Any of you guys use a Engel bait cooler. If so how do you like it and does it keep bait well?  I mainly want it for mud minnows or finger mullet from time to time. Will post a link below so you know what I’m talking about.

    I have the same cooler but just as a plain cooler not set up for bait.  Came free with the Kayak.  Been using it for 4-5 years.  I'm sure it's going to work great with muds.  Decent cooler, not a Yeti, I could feel the cold on the walls after 2-3 hours packing it with ice, the gasket is superb, refrigerator quality, the latches lock and seal very well.  I'd recommend it for a day's fishing.

    I have the 19 quart version. I kept a couple dozen mud minnows in it for 3 days one time during a storm.  I bought the minnows and could not go out- so I kept the pump running.  They all lived fine.   When I buy mud minnows- the guy at the bait shop always comments on how it is the nicest minnow bucket he has ever seen.

    My son gave my Father one for Christmas, but far as I know he hasn't used it yet.
    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you

    i won one at a tournament about 4 yrs ago. really like it, but it doesn't keep ice any longer than any of my igloos.

    The Engel Bait Cooler is great. i have one and have used it for everything from shrimp to minnows to pilchards (but only a few of those at a time as I walk the shoreline). Never had any issue with it and the bait stayed fresh all day.
