I'm extremely curious about this concept. ?? how would it work?

Assuming your tank is below the waterline I could see that working. But in the summer to get cold water you'd have to pull your water from 15-20 feet down or so. Depends on your environmental parameters i guess because that definitely would not work here.

By the ocean one could simply use the tidal movements to get r done though, that'd be cool to see.

Gravity is what causes a river to flow why couldnt u have one flowing threw your house ? And why would you need pumps ? Unless u pick a river that drys up

then you would need a sump pump for your basement lol because you'd be below the water table for the area

so there is a pump involved just not one that's related to the tank

Best side of this setup is that if you have crap weather muck up your fishing plans you can just grab your rod and have at her in your basement

Stick around guys because one day I will be posting pictures of me reeling in a 20 pound northern pike in my basement.
