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.

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.

No, you will run out of room by about 2 deep.  Here is a very good solution for you, remove the bottom of a similar 5 gallon bucket. Please the bottom less bucket into the bucket that has a bottom and you will have sufficient room now.  Go for it!

Yes.  I fit my 1200' line, heavily baited w/ necks (about every 4-5 feet) into a 5 gal bucket w/o a problem. 
Happy Crabbing!

Maybe a better idea is 2 - 5 gallon buckets with 600 feet in each bucket.  Stack second bucket inside the first on top of trotline.  ends up about 1 foot taller than one bucket but most freezers are tall enough and 1/2 volume of frozen necks in each bucket will thaw a lot faster.

I have 2-600' snooded lines with necks at 6' apart.  Each 600' line fits perfectly into a 5 gallon bucket. The lines are 3/16" rope.
The trick is to push it down as you lay the line in.
Both buckets fit perfectly in the chest freezer.
