mackerel don't seem to last long in a water bucket,is it best to bait them up straight away when they are caught?

I've got a battery run pump,2 speeds on it.I'd forgotten I had it.I've got a couple of nice 25 ltr buckets as well.

Last time I used it was on the Medlock,yep,the Medlock near Clayton bridge.

Caught a few minnows on a small hook and dumped them in the bucket.

Put them on a 8's hook live under a bubble float,bang,bang,a 4lb chub,bang bang,a few 2lb to 3lb Trout.

I used it in Fowey a few years ago,very handy for the sandeels.

It's a nice little stretch but I've never fished it Sad

I used to get down there with my brother pretty often,but I doubt I can get down to the bank these days with my dodgy foot.
I don't know if you know or not,but there is a pond (£6) if you turn right at the pub at the bottom of clayton bridge
about half a mile up,next to the river.I've fished it a couple of times,but it's overfished.
That's where I get access to the river.(no pike in it though)
