I have been fishing in the Pacific Ocean the last few weekends and my live bait does not last long. Does anyone have an idea on how to convert the bait tank to create a circular motion to the water current?

Unless your live well is different than most, your live well pump should easily keep enough water circulating through. Mine - which I just replaced - has a 500GPH pump (8GPM) pushing water through about a 10 gallon tank. What is yours?

It's the stock tank on the F18. Nozzle points down.

Could you add a piece of ABS - elbow and length - to bring it onto the bottom of the tank?
