This Engel Bait Cooler is amazing I was able to keep a pint shrimp alive overnight without a problem best purchase I've made this year !
I give this cooler/live well 5+ stars, it keeps my bait fresh and alive
way longer than any other I have tried on my kayak. Love it, if you
don't have one you should.
Much better than Frabill model
Perfect size for my kayak. I works great as a live bait holder. Kept my
croaker alive for many hours. I of course works great as a small travel
cooler. I would purchase again. The only thing is the hinges look a bit
flimsy but so far so good.
I bought the Engel 13 quart cooler / bait box just before a fishing
trip. It worked great. I put a pound of minnows ( bout 6 doz) in and it
kept them just fine for 2 days, and that was with us dipping in a lot
to take one or two out. We lost a few but not the first day, it was a
good trip , and i will continue to use this bait box.
However I did have trouble with the Aerator , I had to open it up and
re-sauder a connection, then I didn't like that it was very loud. So i
went to Academy and bought a Stabil aerator , it is quieter and seems
to be better built. But I love the box.
I haven't tried it other than as a cooler so far but I am satisfied with
quality...ACK good compant to do buisness with.
Excellent quality cooler. Love the size, perfect for my Hobie Pro
Angular 12. Have used it twice so far and it works great. I felt this
cooler was better quality than the Fabil cooler and worth the extra
money. The stainless steel latches are nice. The hinges are plastic,
but seem fairly durable.
Finally got to use my new
Engle live bait cooler and I
truely love this product. It
keeps the bail cool and alive.
One reason I love this bait box
cooler is that it can plug into a
cigerate lighter and save
batteries. I recently purchased
a adaptor to plug into my
house outlet so that I can run
the areator for days if needed.

Quality Engel construction (just like their
coolers) I've used it on multiple fishing
trips and it does the job in keeping the
bait cool and alive. I like the power
adapter for the aerator to plug in lighter
and save batteries. One note with the
air-tube inserted - it is NOT water tight -
water does leak from the air-tube hole.
(not a big deal but it will not serve as a
drybox unless the plug is inserted in the
air tube hole.
I purchased a Engel Live Bait
Cooler with Aerator BC 13.
And just after my second use
the aerator stopped working.
After repeated attempts to
contact both seller and
distributor. I ended up buy a
Wal-Mart aerator for 12.99 that
has lasted longer than this one
from engel. May be they
should give a person the option
not to buy the aerator, The
cooler is great. I finally did get
a respond from ACK and they
informed me they were aware
of the problem with the
aerator. There respond was
contact the Engel distributor in
Florida. Thanks allot.
Great bait cooler. ACK has lightening fast
shipping and great customer service. My
cooler arrived without the aerator.
Contacted ACK and they had one shipped to
me. Definitely recommend this cooler
The bait cooler has been great.
It seems solid with strong
hinges. The carry strap is
perfect for carrying when it is
full of water and bait. Well
insulated and strong air pump.
