Default 5gal bucket used for lionfish?

I have seen a couple post on using a 5gal bucket with holes in it and a X cut into to the lid for lionfish. Instead of using a bag. Has anyone tried it yet? I'm thinking about trying. Do you guys/gals think you can put lobster in the same bucket with lionfish?

we put lionfish and lobster in the same bag all the time, don't see why you couldn't do the same with a bucket?

Lobster might be able to push out of the "X" in the top of the bucket if they tried hard enough but as for lionfish, it would have no additional effect

5 gallon bucket is gonna be a PITA to lug around. Get one of the lionfish bags from MBT Divers. Its a modified lobster bag....but works great for lions...and the spines don't come through. Very fast to use.

Used a bag the other day... noticed that the 2 small holes in the bottom were WAY toOO SMALL...water flow was very slow while my wife lifted the bag into the boat was very difficult for her,,, I have added a few ... however the potential for spine pokes is higher..

Why not just take a pair of snips down and cut the spines off before putting in the bag?? Saw that on some of the videos...

Trimming the spines while in the water takes up to much bottom time. I will go by MBT and check out what they have. Thx for the input

Yep, that is an issue with the bag. Just need a work around method......maybe a short rope and a clip...so that the bag can hang off the side of the boat until its drained...??
The problem with mesh or more holes is the risk of getting stuck.
Cutting the fins off is not an option when you are dealing with the # of fish we have now.

Scuba Nation TV show just did a special on Lion Fish hunting. If this link works it is what they were using it is made by Zoo Keeper, it is on the Reef.org website.
