Custom Liofish containment device

I recently did a lion fish tourney here in Jax,The lion fish rodeo.Was a great time by the way.On a couple of the dives i crammed my containment device all the way full.I talked to some other divers at the tourney and a lot of them carry 2 devices with them on tournament days.I was tinkering around in the garage and at lowes and heres what i came up with.My favorite one is the clear plastic one cause it is super light weight and because you can see your catch when you get back on the boat.The materials literally cost me $150 bucks and i made 3 of them.I still have enough material(the clear tube)to make one more.I have seen some custom ones made out of 6 in. plumbing pipes and 5 gallon clear water bottles.Has anyone else made some custom ones?If so share them,we would like to see.thanks

Re: Custom Liofish containment device

well I called them and they charged me less.$70 bucks for a 6 foot piece,then all the fittings were fairly inexpensive.u could also get a 10 ft by 6 inch pipe from lowes for $40 and make 3 of them

Re: Custom Liofish containment device

That's pretty nice.

I'm looking to make one out of a bollard cover. http://www.innoplast.com/products/bo.../standard.html 7" ID. It won't be as nice as yours but hopefully it does the trick.
