Yep that's an old bait bucket. I've always called them minnow buckets :) Both my grandpa's had one of those.
minnow bucket for fishing - you would put your minnows in and then have rope hanging on it's handle and leave in the water while fishing
It is the inside part of a minnow bucket
That's a great conversation piece, have you got a spot you can display it?
I put a string of Christmas lights and potpourri in mine.
I didn't know it was a minnow bucket, but it sure is a cool piece! I'd put it on my front porch and add some lights on the inside and maybe put a plant on top of it!
Minnow or bait bucket.
Oh my! It's been years since I've seen one but I remember taking one with us when we went fishing. It had bait in it and we had it in the water and tied up to the boat for easy access.
it is for bait :)
That’s the inside portion of a minnow pail. You keep live bait inside of it, while it is immersed in water inside of a slightly larger pail. You could slightly raise it out of the enclosing pail to get a minnow out to put on your hook.
I was going to say the same. I'm pretty sure it's a bait bucket. The holes are to allow water to flow through while holding the bait/fish.
yes for fishing. But what a great piece to repurpose!! Lantern?
I’m liking that idea!!

Its a minnow bucket also referred to as a bait bucket. They are used to transfer and hold your bait minnows when you go fishing.
Well, I know I’m late to this party but what a walk down memory lane! I looked that this bucket and immediately thought of my Daddy. He had one he always used when we went fishing. I knew what it was as soon as I saw it. Can’t remember the last time I saw one of these. Thanks for asking the question and making a memory for me.
Hi Nessie Belle. Who of us has not gotten caught doing something we shouldn’t do?😆
It’s a cricket box, I don’t think minnows would survive with no water. You put half of a raw potato for them to eat and stay alive
Bait bucket that holds live bait and is lowered into water to keep the bait alive.
It is the inside part of a minnow bucket to take on fishing trips.
Bait bucket. We used shiners another name for minnows for ice fishing
I'm still using my parent's minnow bucket for it's original purpose, and I'm over 70!
