Chumming Stripers with Pure 100% Oxygen in Georgia “Oxy-Chum”

Clarks Hill Stripers Finding A More Oxygen-Rich Thermocline

A new oxygen system on Clarks Hill is making for better striper water. by Don Baldwin https://www.gon.com/fishing/clarks-hill-stripers-finding-a-more-oxygen-rich-thermocline

About 5 miles upstream from the Strom Thurmond Dam, near Modoc, the corps suspended a series of nine oxygen lines at varying depths through a stretch of the lake.

During the summer, oxygen gas is supplied to these lines, and the oxygen is released along the length of the lines through small openings. The system is simple but apparently effective.

The oxygen tubes are placed upstream of the dam to allow for a longer stretch of improved oxygen levels as the current moves downstream.

The striper population seems to be thriving, and there is still plenty of action even in the heat of the summer.

The Best Summer Tournament Bass Care Possible or Less Than The Best Bass Care Possible is every tournament fisherman’s personal choice today. And the choice one makes is crystal clear.

Todd Driscoll TP&WD Fisheries Biologist Summer Fish Care Article with Links to O2 Injection System Specs http://www.kensmithfishing.com/blog/todd-driscoll-tpwd-fisheries-biologist-summer-fish-care-article-links-o2-injection-system-specs/

Driscoll says, “To maintain livewell-held bass in the best possible shape, pure oxygen-injection systems (oxygen bottle, regulator, and fine-pore air diffuser) can be installed for under $300 [a homemade DIY oxygen-injection system].  Without question, lack of oxygen is the primary reason fish die in livewells.  During the most extreme conditions (i.e., 15 + pounds of bass in a livewell over 85 degrees), these oxygen-injection systems are the only way to maintain optimum oxygen levels.” 

How much tournament fish care are you really willing to provide for your summer tournament catch all day in summer fishing tournaments?

How much tournament fish care is really “too much fish care,” too much trouble, cost too much… and another15 excuses to reject the best tournament fish care possible” this summer?_____________________________________________________________________________

“A clarification about using hydrogen peroxide in livewells” https://www.westernbass.com/forum/clarification-about-using-hydrogen-peroxide-live-wells-t41246.html

“In the post below about the new special conditions at Diamond Valley, one of the subsequent posters in the thread suggested using hydrogen peroxide in the livewell to produce O2. Gene Gilliland and Hal Schramm, in their booklet Keeping Bass Alive say that H2O2 “can injure fish and should not be used” because it damages the gill filaments. “Damage to gill filaments, suffocation and death may result”, according to the authors.”

The Department of Fish and Game asks that anglers and tournament organizations do not use hydrogen peroxide as a livewell water additive.”

CHEMICALS – pg 21

Another chemical that has sometimes been used to treat livewell or holding tank water is Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2). Hydrogen Peroxide breaks down into oxygen and water in the presence of organic matter. However, this chemical can injure fish and should not be used. Most people have used this colorless, odorless, tasteless liquid to disinfect a cut or scratch. You can see it fizzing and bubbling on the skin as it oxidizes. Now imagine what it does in a livewell full of bass. The bass’ mucus coating protects its skin from the oxidation reaction, but there is no such protective coating on the delicate gill filaments. Unfortunately, anglers that use Hydrogen Peroxide think that is a little is good, a little more should be better. Wrong! Damage to gill filaments, suffocation, and death may result.   DO NOT USE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE IN THE LIVEWELL

Bass Mortality and the Tournament Angler, How to Keep Your Catch Alive, by Bill Hutcheson, Bass Angler Magazine 6/7/2006  https://bassanglermag.com/bass-mortality-and-the-tournament-angler/

This article was written 4 years after B.A.S.S. published Keeping Bass Alive, 2002, nearly 2 decades ago.

The writer writes:

“Oxygen and water temperature are the two most significant factors in determining initial bass mortality.  Colder water retains dissolved oxygen better than warm water.  As such, the cooler months of the year do not pose as great a threat to fish in the live well as do the summer months.”

Water Temperature and Oxygen

“… the number one culprit in initial mortality is water temperature and associated [hypoxic] oxygen levels according to the Texas Tech synopsis.” Texas Tech University professors led by Gene R Wilde. 1972 to 1996,” over 2 decades ago.

*Transport and Holding Methods – ”A few dealers aerate the water by bubbling oxygen through air stones from oxygen cylinders, but this method is not widely used because the expense is substantially increased without significant increase in survival.”

Aeration (21% oxygen) and oxygenation (100% oxygen) was considered the same thing then as well as by many today. Today this type aquatic oxygenation is called “oxygen-injection.” Pure 100% compressed oxygen, liquid oxygen and commercial PSA oxygen generators are commonly used to insure continuous minimal safe oxygenation for live shrimp transports and live shrimp dealer capability.

*SUGGESTIONS FOR HOLDING LIVE BAIT SHRIMPGreater oxygen demand should be met by increasing the water circulation or by aerating the water (mechanical aeration with ambient air).”

GENERAL OVERVIEW

This 1966 published scientific research suggest the primary problem causing bait shrimp dealers high mortality is insufficient oxygenation (hypoxic livewell water). The researchers also recommends that more mechanical aeration and or increased water flow through live tanks will correct the high mortality problem caused by insufficient oxygenation (hypoxia) thus increasing survival rates.

HOW MUCH DISSOLVED OXYGEN IS SAFE FOR TRANSPORTING LIVE FISH AND LIVE BAITFISH IN BOAT LIVEWELLS AND BAIT TANKS

*100 % DO Saturation for all live fish transports is required regardless of the stocking density or water temperature.

An opinion and recommendation from Texas Parks and Wild Life Fisheries Division:

 Fishery Science FACT: “At a moderate water temperature of 70˚F, 100 percent oxygen saturation is 8.8 mg/l of oxygen, whereas at the higher temperature of 80˚F, 100 percent saturation is 7.9 mg/l. Both of these 100 percent saturation oxygen levels are suitable for keeping bass alive.”

CAUTION – ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZZARD

Oxygenator Bad Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14nyjpAAFZI by drhobbs28

Published on Apr 6, 2017

So after waiting 2 weeks for a new one I have finally installed my new oxygenator. My old one was giving me up to 8 volts in my livewell water. So I installed the new one and had half the voltage [4.5 V]. Every time I would put a fish in my livewell he would turn side up. Well that’s because he was getting shocked. After getting no answers and ignored I decided to pass this on. You might want to check yours out. Check it from negative battery post to the water. It really lights up as the water is draining from the oxygenator. I learned this one day while cleaning my livewell and was leaning on the piano hinge and reached into the water and got lit up.

Independent 3rd party testing confirms substantial electrical current is present in livewell water using a volt meter when livewell Oxygenator is running and touching livewell water.

Positive test results confirms continuous electrical voltage (4.5V – 8.0V) in livewell water when the Oxygenator is submerged underwater, turned on and running.

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.

April 30, 2017  Pre-slaughter oxygen – Marine Harvest secures the fish quality with automatic oxygenation.

 http://www.oxyvision.com/index.php/news/item/51-pre-slaughter-oxygen
With a yearly production of 85 000 tonnes of salmon, the Eggesbønes plant is Marine Harvests largest processing unit in Norway.

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…

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?  https://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.

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.
