Before I was able to come across a good used bait tank...(thanks Travis) I made due with a Home made tank for a few years that worked really well also. Basically just using a 20 gal laundry tub from walmart, a 500gph pump, and some Pvc fittings along with wrapping it up to insulate it.
Ok basically the pump pumps up out of the tank as shown in the bottom of this picture
It pumps into a 4" clean out cap with a piece of screen in the bottom. You fill the clean out with polyfill and this is your filter box
From the cleanout it goes straight down back into the tank. if you take a piece of rubber hose and cut a angle on the end of it and stick it in the down spout and run the other end up above the water line. Creates a home made venturi to add oxygen to your water. Add a 90 degree elbow at the bottom to give your water some directional flow and all is good.
