Opinions on how to weld this crack on my fel bucket.

I was thinking of running a thin zip disc along the length of the crack and then welding it.
But then I got to thinking maybe I should just weld it as is or perhaps grind a small 'V' and long the crack.
I can and plan on hammering the ends to align.
What would you do and thanks in advance.

Can we see a bigger picture of where the crack is.
My first thought, just weld it. I assume it's pretty thin steel.
(y) That was my point.
And, just for the heck of it...

No need to vee metal that thin. Drilling a hole at the end may help but I'm not sure about it.

Apparently that’s why God put a hole there.
