Thoughts on this?  Looking to get a few trips out of each baiting.  Freezer is a bit tight and a 5 gal bucket might be easier to fit than the orange basket I normally use.

Depends how big of bait you use how far apart etc. Clam bags is a no. Small necks maybe.

Each one of us here today will at one time in our lives look upon a loved one who is in need and ask the same question: We are willing to help, Lord, but what, if anything, is needed? For it is true we can seldom help those closest to us. Either we don't know what part of ourselves to give or, more often than not, the part we have to give is not wanted. And so it is those we live with and should know who elude us. But we can still love them - we can love completely without complete understanding.

1/4 inch probably not. 3/16 maybe baited with necks.

I used to use a chlorine bucket which is a little taller than normal 5 gal. I could just get 600' of snood with salted eel which is a skinny bait. There is no way you'll get 1000' line in a five unless maybe parachute cord for line. Hope this helps.

1000ft of 5/32" rope will fit to the top of 5gal bucket without baits. I sew up two 5gal buckets to fit my 1200ft with bait. Two sewed up buckets probably made to 7gal.

I use a 7 gallon bucket for mine and sometimes can fit 1500' in it with necks and a snap lid. I am also using parachute cord for my line with snoods. I sit bucket/s on shelf that has the veggie draws and have taken out any other shelves and drawer in it. It's my fridge though specifically for my lines right now.

5 gal is about 14.5" and a 7 gal is about 20"

Hope this helps and good luck

I was able to fit 1000' of snoodline in a 5 gallon bucket baited with chicken necks.  The main line was #4 Loktite and the snoods were made of 1/8" bungee.  I cut my chicken necks in half if they are too big.
