Aluminum Fishing Oxygen Regulator Failure, Galvanic Corrosion.
The Oxygen Edge™ is the original commercial fishing oxygen system built for sport fishermen and commercial fishermen. Dial in the “right dose of O2 guaranteed to “Supercharge” live bait, keep live bait and tournament game safely oxygenated and healthy during live fish transports. Oxygen injection insures safe oxygenation all day, over-night or a week or more in the most adverse hot summer conditions in packed overcrowded livewells and bait tanks. You control all your livewell water quality parameters, especially dissolved oxygen (DO Saturation) in all seasonal conditions, especially those harsh, hot summer conditions when livewell mortality is always highest… if you want too.
The Oxygen Edge™ is sold worldwide… the live bait oxygenation revolution began on the hot Texas Gulf Coast, USA the summer of 1993… over 25 years ago.
Oxygen Edge™ sport fishermen and commercial fishermen use pure compressed oxygen livewell “life support system.” The Edge is the most reliable, durable and dependable adjustable dose commercial O2 system on the market today. Most impressive when used in hostile hot summer fishing conditions when keeping bait and tournament fish alive and healthy all day is really important. The adjustable oxygen regulators are specifically engineered and built of metals designed for marine use to inhibit metal damage caused by Galvanic Corrosion. The Edge IS NOT repackaged, relabeled medical equipment prone to failure caused by Galvanic Corrosion.
Oxygen Edge™ is necessary when KeepALive bait tanks and aerators, Kodiak bait tanks, Rule and Flow-Rite bait pumps, boat livewell aeration systems, livewell pumps, V-T2 air vents and electric Oxygenators all fail to insure or provide minimal safe oxygenation for all your live bait and tournament fish every summer. Failing to keep your live bait alive, frisky, and healthy is expensive, aggravating and stressful. Sloppy, dying, dead bait has ruined many summer fishing trips. Transporting and hoping to keep tournament fish alive or healthy all day to weigh-in in the summer is very stressful for most tournament anglers and a major cause of unnecessary angst for all C&R tournament fishermen every summer. A fish dies in your livewell, you will get the “dead fish punishment” and you will loose the money, the prize and the fame when a fish dies.
Winning is the point of the summer tournament fishing game and it only takes 1 dead fish in the livewell and you will loose the money. That all day stress tournament fishermen experience before and during summer day and especially night C&R tournaments is unnecessary and avoidable.
Oxygen Edge™ insures safe oxygenation (100% DO Concentration or greater), that will make any overcrowded boat livewell or bait tank fail-safe every summer. Insuring and always delivering the right amount of oxygen for all your live bait and fish is vital, you dial-in the correct dose of oxygen on the regulator for all the bait and tournament game fish in your livewell. You have absolute control of the DO Saturation at all times, every summer. The OE regulator is the original adjustable turn-on and forget adjustable commercial fishing oxygen regulator used in closed livewells, bait tanks, coolers or 5 gallon bait buckets.
The Edge is superior to any mechanical air (aeration) system and livewell water pumps when/if minimal safe oxygenation during transport is essential and must be maintained, especially in the summer and especially if/when you overstock your livewells by choice or accidently. Overstocking livewells in the summer always results in suffocation, red-nose and sloppy bait with mechanical aeration and water pumps. Air is not oxygen although these 2 gases are often considered the same by most fishermen and writers. Doctors, nurses and welders both know well the difference between these 2 different gases. Air, oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen gases are all colorless, odorless and tasteless and all make clear bubbles in livewell water and none are explosive except hydrogen gas which is explosive.
Oxygen Edge™ is a portable livewell oxygen injection system, a portable oxygen life support system that’s dependable 24/7, supersaturates livewell water with pure 100% compressed welding oxygen, commercial O2 regulator delivers a wide range of doses of pure oxygen necessary for increasing and decreasing bait and fish loads, operates quietly and continuously with absolutely no chance of electrical failure, no batteries required. Prevents livewell suffocation.
Oxygen Edge™ is a real life aquatic life-support oxygen transport system that cools livewell water about 2 F below ambient water temperature, no ice or hypothermia necessary or recommended.
Oxygen Edge™ adjustable commercial oxygen regulators deliver a controlled precision dose of pure 100% compressed oxygen always ensuring 100% dissolved oxygen saturation and greater for 1 to 225 lbs of live bait or tournament game fish. OE regulators are not repackaged medical oxygen regulators that deliver liters per minute or pediatric regulators that deliver fractions of liters per minute.
You dial in the pounds of fish or live bait on the regulator settings, you chose correct dose of oxygen with the “tank time chart” for the total weight of bait or fish in your livewell and the correct dose and volume of pure oxygen is delivered continuously.
The OE regulator provides a wide range of oxygen doses that range from 2 lbs. to 225 lbs. of live bait or tournament fish that ensures safe oxygenation for overcrowded livewells for summer transports. You dial-in right dose of oxygen on the OE precision gas regulator for all your bait for a day trip, overnight, a week… stockpile live bait safely in home live tanks and bait pens used in open water, canals and marinas.
MYTH: Adjustable doses of oxygen based on livewell water volume sounds good, but this is absolutely meaningless.
FACT: The minimal safe dose of oxygen required for live transport is sustained 100% DO saturation dependent on total biomass of fish and bait in the livewell being transported. More bait and fish always require a greater dose of 100% oxygen.
“Supercharged Live Bait” is the best but not for all live bait fishermen.
Only a fisherman can make this kind of live bait quality.
Supercharging live bait with 100% oxygen guarantees extraordinary, unnatural high quality live bait in the most adverse, hostile summer conditions, every summer. This quality live bait is abnormal and man-made, far superior to fresh caught bait. Supercharging requires a greater dose of 100% oxygen.

The precision adjustable OE regulators are custom engineered and designed for marine use. They are made with only 2 metals, solid brass bodies plated with solid nickel to reduce electrolysis damage, a major safety issue. They are commercial high pressure adjustable regulators, not repackaged click-style aluminum medical regulators that are highly prone to Galvanic Corrosion and failure used around salty water.
Oxygen Edge™ regulators are not repackaged, relabeled pediatric medical oxygen regulators calibrated in fractions of LPM or LPM. All pediatric medical oxygen regulators deliver fractions of LPM doses. Repackaged pediatric medical oxygen regulators are commonly advertised and sold as commercial fishing oxygen regulators.

Oxygen Edge™ injects pure compressed welding oxygen into livewells and bait tank water. Supercharging requires more oxygen than the small amount needed to simply keep bait and fish alive and healthy. Aeration (air) will not supercharge live bait, there’s not enough oxygen in air. Fish hatchery transporters and the “Edge” both use the same pure commercial welding oxygen for all live fish transports.
Oxygen Edge™ systems costs as much as a pair of Costa Del Mar ($300) sunglasses, a medium grade rod ($200) and reel ($200), one decent Kayak paddle ($275), 2 fishing tournament jerseys ($450) or tank of regular gasoline. The Oxygen Edge™ may increase a boat note about $4 a month. What’s it worth to you to have healthy, abnormally high quality live bait all day and night every summer? What’s it worth to you not to have to give all the tournament fish in your livewell a second thought about their safety and survival all day in every summer tournament? What is your piece of mind really worth summer after summer?
Oxygen Edge™ (oxygen supplementation) is necessary if you overstock your livewell or bait tank and when you want and need “SUPERCHARGED” live bait quality in the summer. But, if you never overstock your livewell, never have low-oxygen problems in your summer livewell, if your live bait or tournament fish are never red-nosed, sickly or dying in your livewell in the summer from lack of dissolved oxygen, if you never overstock your livewell in the summer, if you really don’t want or don’t need the highest quality, strongest, most durable live bait possible… then mechanical aerators, spray bars and livewell water pumps may work fine for you even in the hot summer months.
“Supercharged” live bait is “man made” and requires more oxygen required to keep bait alive and healthy all day. The correct precision dose of pure 100% compressed oxygen is needed for “Supercharging” and delivered by our commercial adjustable oxygen regulators. Supercharged live bait fish and shrimp are not natural. “Supercharged” live baits are man made and requires plenty of pure 100% oxygen. Livewell pumps and mechanical aeration cannot/will not “Supercharge” live bait fish. Air, aeration and livewell pumps are always limited, air is only 20% oxygen. A large dose of pure 100% oxygen injected continuously into livewell water is necessary for “Supercharging.” Only a fishermen can make “Supercharged” live bait.
Oxygen Edge™ is not necessary for summer C & R fishing tournaments if the “Dead Fish Punishment” is of little or no concern to you. But, when winning that tournament prize is the point, then getting your tournament catch to the weigh-master after an all day ride in your boat livewell is your primary goal, you need the correct dose of supplemental oxygen in your livewell delivered continuously in summer tournaments.
In “Kill Fishing Tournaments,” keep those fish alive because live fish will always weigh more than dead fish on ice. Ounces and fractions of ounces count when the goal is WINNING THE MONEY OR PRIZE.
Oxy-Chum™ attracts and consolidated saltwater and freshwater live baitfish and target game fish. Oxygen is more effective than food and sent in predictable summer and winter environmental conditions.
Pure oxygen bubbled underwater creates a “Honey Hole” of extremely high dissolved oxygen underwater in the summer and winter. Creating and oasis of pure 100% oxygen bubbled 10-15 ft. under hot lake water in the summer compels a congregation of all fish species.
FACT: High dissolved oxygen concentrations stimulate feeding in hot environmental water in the Dog Days of Summer and during late winter, when lake surfaces have been frozen solid for months and there is no diffusion of oxygen into the water. Fish are hungry and will eat when they can breathe again.
Chumming with pure oxygen works when the bite slows down every summer in the south and late winter in North America climes. In the northern hemisphere, fish don’t bite or move much in the “Dog Days of Summer” or frozen lakes in late winter when lake surfaces have been frozen over and the environmental dissolved oxygen is low.
Oxy-Chum™ An artificial oasis of pure 100% oxygen underwater that improves an oxygen poor environment so fish and bait can breath again. Most effective when the environmental DO is low; in the heat of summer, July, August and the dead of winter when the lakes are iced over, February and March. Fish are like people, the bite dramatically gets better and they will eat IF and WHEN they can breathe better.
