The Oxygen Edge™ is sold worldwide…  the live bait oxygenation revolution began on the hot Texas Gulf Coast, USA the summer of 1993… over 29 years ago. Oxygen-injection life support systems for sportfishermen was a Paradyme SHIFT away from mechanical aeration in livewells and bait tanks.  l

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/morbidity is always highest … if you want too.

The Oxygen Edge™ sport fishermen and commercial fishermen use pure compressed oxygen livewell “life support system.” Preventing suffocation in summer life transports with the right dose of oxygen: The Edge is the most reliable, durable and dependable adjustable dose commercial O2 system on the market today.  It’s most impressive when used in hostile hot summer fishing conditions when keeping bait and tournament fish alive and healthy all day is really important. Our adjustable oxygen regulators are specifically engineered and built of metals designed (pure brass body and pure nickel plating inside and outside) for marine use to inhibit metal damage caused by Galvanic Corrosion. 

The Oxygen Edge™ is necessary every summer when livewells, bait tanks, bait pumps, boat livewell aeration systems, livewell water 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.  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.  When 1 tournament fish dies in your livewell, you will get the “dead fish penalty/punishment” and you will loose the money, the prize and the fame.

Winning is the point of the summer C&R tournament fishing game. One dead fish in the livewell and you will lose the money.

That all day stress tournament fishermen experience before and during summer day and especially night C&R tournaments is unnecessary and avoidable.

The Oxygen Edge™ insures safe livewell oxygenation (100% DO Concentration or greater) when used correctly. that will make any overcrowded boat livewell or bait tank fail-safe every summer eliminating suffocation. The fisherman controls and delivers the right dose of oxygen for all the live bait and fish being transported. You have absolute control of the DO Saturation at all times, every summer regardless of abnormally high stocking densities. The unique commercial OE regulator used in closed livewells, bait tanks, coolers or 5 gallon bait buckets.

The Oxygen Edge™ is superior to all electrical mechanical air (aeration) systems and livewell water pumps when and if insuring minimal safe oxygenation continuously during live 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, outdoors writers and numerous fishery biologist. All doctors, nurses, aircraft pilots, SCUBA divers, plumbers and welders know the difference between oxygen and air; they all know, under the fire safety Rules of the Oxygen Road faithfully. Air, oxygen, nitrogen, helium and hydrogen gases are all colorless, odorless and tasteless and all make clear bubbles in livewell water… Hydrogen gas is explosive.

The Oxygen Edge™  is a portable manual livewell oxygen-injection system that is dependable 24/7.  Pure 100% is accurately delivered with our commercial O2 regulator. A wide range of O2 doses are necessary for increasing and decreasing bait and fish loads, operates quietly and continuously with absolutely no chance of electrical failure, no batteries required. Delivering the right dose of oxygen is very important, not too much O2 and not too little O2.

The Oxygen Edge™ is a real aquatic life-support oxygen transport system. It cools livewell water about 2 degreea  below ambient water temperature. With the correct dose of O2, chilling livewell water with ice (inducing hypothermia) is not necessary or recommended. 

The Oxygen Edge™ adjustable 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 click-style aluminum oxygen regulators.

You dial in the pounds of fish or live bait on the regulator dose settings. You chose and dial in the correct dose of oxygen. And oxygen “tank time chart” is included in the written operating instructions.

The OE regulator provides a wide range of oxygen doses required for a range of stocking densities 2 lbs. to 225 lbs. ensures safe oxygenation for overcrowded livewells for summer transports. You dial-in the correct dose of oxygen for all your bait for a day trip, overnight, a week. You can even stockpile live bait safely in home live tanks and bait pens use in open water, canals and marinas.

FACT: Many base the correct dose of oxygen dose supplemental oxygen on livewell/bait tank water volume (gallons of water). Sounds good, impressive, but this kind of thinking means absolutely meaningless when your livewells/bait tanks contain no bait fish, bait shrimp or tournament game fish. 

FACT: The minimal safe dose of oxygen required for live fish transport is sustained, continuous 100% DO saturation/ The correct dose of O2 is 100% dependent on total biomass (lbs.) of fish and bait in the livewell being transported. The correct dose of O2 is not based on the livewell water volume. More live bait and fish in the livewell always require a larger dose of 100% oxygen. Not a larger dose of ambient air or higher volume livewell pumps.

“Supercharged Live Bait” is the best live bait fish any live baiter can make (far exceeding fresh caught bait quality).

Only a fisherman can make Supercharged live baitfish in his livewell/bait tank. Mother Nature is not capable of doing this because air contains <21% oxygen. 

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 is man-made, far superior to fresh caught bait. Supercharging requires a high dose of O2 insuring continuous 150% to 175% DO supersaturation in transport water.

The Oxygen Edge™ our “Generic Oxygen Regulators” are dose adjustable and have aluminum alloy bodies at 1/3 the cost Oxygen Edge commercial regulators.

The Oxygen Edge™ injects pure compressed welding oxygen into livewells and bait tank water.   Supercharging requires more oxygen than the 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. 

The 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.

The 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, you 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.

The Oxygen Edge™ is not necessary and of no importance for summer C & R fishing tournaments if the “Dead Fish Punishment” caused by livewell suffocation/hypoxia (low-no dissolved oxygen) is no concern for you.

But, if winning that tournament prize money is the point of your tournament exercise, getting your tournament limit of fish to the weigh-master’s scales after an all-day ride in your boat livewell alive and healthy by providing the best tournament fish care possible in 2022. 

In “Kill – Fishing Tournaments,” consider keeping those gamefish alive and healthy to the weigh-master’s scale. Live fish 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™  a man-made oxygen oasis attracts and consolidated saltwater and freshwater live baitfish and fish far better than food and structure. Modifying fish behavior with pure oxygen effective than food, sent and structure in predictable summer and winter environmental conditions.

When environmental dissolved oxygen conditions in the summer and winter pure oxygen creates a life-saving “Oxygenated Honey Hole.” Fishermen create that oasis of pure 100% oxygen bubbled 10-15 ft. under hot summer lake water or under that ice sheet covering the lakes water surface in the winter when environmental dissolved oxygen is always low. Correcting low environmental water dissolved oxygen causes mass 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 ambient air (<21% 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 are not suffocating and can breathe better.
