With the Engel Live Bait Cooler with Aerator BC 19, your minnows, shrimp or other live bait will always be ready for action, thanks to the powerful 2X2 Air Pump and insulated cooler box. The 2-speed air pump keeps the water fully aerated and the insulated cooler shields expensive bait from extreme temperatures, whether you're fishing in the dog days of summer or out on the ice in January.

Turn the pump down and conserve battery power later in the day.

The BC 19 is the perfect size Aerator for my Canoe. If you want to use it on a kayak, it may take up a little too much room, and the BC 13 would be more ideal. The 19 is perfect for canoes, piers, and fishing off the beach, and can easily keep 2 dozen bait fish or live shrimp alive for plenty of time. The only issue I have is the fact that it needs to come with a power cord for a home electrical outlet along with the car charger.
I have one for about a year. I have used it about a dozen times. Pulled it out a few days ago out of storage for a yak trip. The cooler is in very good condition. Hardware has no corrosion and the box is in excellent condition. Sad but the pump is dead. It has no visible corrosion and the batteries were in good condition. I also tried to run it on the 12v adapter, no luck. Sent it to the dumpster and replaced it with another brand. The pump was not abused, low hours, was always cleaned and put up properly. The pump internals do not appear to be as robust as some other brands.. Five stars on the cooler and zero for the pump.
The Engel bait cooler is top notch. It is study, high quality, well insulated, seals well, and the adaptability of the battery/cigarette lighter for the unit is wonderful. We bought this bait cooler to try and keep our 8 beautiful glofish alive during our move from Florida to Arizona. We hoped the thick insulation, and the constant bubbler would give at least some of them a chance. A risky but last attempt to keep our fish we loved by putting them in there with the bubbler going (plus stress coat) during our 2 1/2 day trip. To our amazement, ALL 8 glofish survived!!! Besides being a bit frazzled every night when we stopped driving, they stayed alive and well. We know that the Engel LIve Bait cooler was essential to this working. Needless to say, we are very pleased. In the future, my husband intends to use this for his fishing trips. If it kept our pet fish alive for 30 hours of driving, it should do very well on bait too.
