When your live bait dies in your livewell in the summer…
How to make dead bait look and act alive, This dead bait trick will help you fool more fish, by Brian Cope http://www.carolinasportsman.com/details.php?id=13898
“Dead bait is rarely as good as live bait, but with these tricks, anglers can make a slow fishing day a little better.”
“Chuck Griffin of Aqua Adventures in Charleston, S.C… When all I have is dead baitfish and I can’t get a consistent bite on them, I’ll put a piece of styrofoam inside the baitfish,” he said.
Great, live, healthy “SUPERCHARGED” bait will always attract more bites and catch more fish in the summer than fake bait or dead bait packed with Styrofoam.

In certain markets, live fish can be sold for substantially higher prices than fresh dressed fish.
The most significant advancement in hauling technology in the last 20 years has been the use of bottled oxygen gas or liquid oxygen to maintain adequate dissolved oxygen levels. These types of systems can maintain significantly higher DO levels than systems using air.

With a yearly production of 85 000 tonnes of salmon, the Eggesbønes plant is Marine Harvests largest processing unit in Norway. http://www.oxyvision.com/index.php/news/item/51-pre-slaughter-oxygen
The [pure] oxygen secures the fish against physical stress. At the slightest drop in oxygen, the systems will deliver sufficient oxygen to stabilise the condition. Oxygen measurements are recorded.
*If the oxygen drops below 100 % sat., the system will respond by adding oxygen in sufficient quantity, until 100 % is restored.
Oxygen diffusers The diffusers are supplied with pure oxygen in the form of microscopic bubbles. Fish that experience oxygen deficiency becomes stressed and exhausted, which may lead to oxygen debt in the flesh and subsequent loss of quality. Oxygen helps to prevent this from happening…

August 24, 2016 Rules are rules: The dead fish penalty
Ray Scott and the Bassmaster Classic scales are about to give Dalton Bobo some very bad news.
No one knows the cost more than Dalton Bobo, the former Alabama pro who — if not for the dead fish penalty — would have won the 1997 Bassmasters Classic.
Like every other competitor in the field, Bobo tried to keep his fish healthy and alive, but one expired prior to reaching the scales. The resulting penalty was a 4-ounce deduction off his total weight. When all was said and done, he lost the title by 1 ounce to Dion Hibdon.

The Biggest Fishing Company Nobody Knows
“The newest product Huntley [T-H Marine] himself has designed is the Oxygen Generator System, which literally separates oxygen from the air and pumps it directly into the livewell.
Nano bubbles are special, they are too small to escape the livewell water column, stick inside fish gills, eye corneas, scales, skin and fins… everywhere.

Anglers put GRDA on the hook for fish deaths: Questions arise after photo surfaces on social media
Posted June 30, 2016 @ 6:54 PM by Kayla M. Huston-Miller
Terrell said he questioned Townsend, when GRDA officials probed the water in the release trailer, one side indicated that the oxygen level was 2.8 on one side of the tank, and 3.1 on another.
[How much dissolved oxygen do fish need during live transports? http://oxyedge-chum.com/how-much-oxygen/ ]
Townsend said while the release trailer’s oxygen levels were lower than the state recommended levels of 5 milligrams per liter, the trailer’s water had an adequate supply of oxygen. “That’s a recipe for disaster,” Terrell said.

The Reel Deal: Check live wells before tournaments
by Cindy Joint
Nothing is more devastating then seeing a fish not survive a long day in the fisherman’s livewell. When fish die, they loose weight too!
Maintain healthy oxygen and water quality in the livewells… to avoid penalties!

In catch-and-release angling competitions, freed bass still face risk
“It’s public relations,” said Mr. Wilde. “If every fish caught in every tournament in the United States was killed, it would not have an appreciable impact on fish populations.”
Texas Tech University biologist Gene Wilde, who has spent about 10 years studying fish deaths after tournaments, said they are believed to die from a combination of conditions.

Bass Tournament Fish Care – The Tournament Angler’s Responsibility
Surviving the Summer by Hal Schramm, Ph.D.
Survival by definition – Once a bass is caught, it’s up to the angler to help the bass survive the dog days of summer. And by “survive,” I don’t mean “still wiggling at weigh-in.” Survival means alive and a part of the catchable bass population months after the release.
