    Looking for suggestions on keeping lobsters on the kayak. My compass doesn't have good below deck storage for that and was either thinking of dive bag to hang over the side (pretty sure the seals don't want the bugs) or just letting them crawl around the tank well. Thanks in advance and good luck this opening weekend!

    I use my Vittles Vault bait tank. Also makes for a good hold to stack my nets.

    Seals like lobsters slightly more than you do. Just sayin'....

    ya dont leave them hanging over the side, not worth it. In the tank or in a mesh bag on the deck.

    a gunny sack would work. I'd keep it on deck......no need to hang it over the side.....
