What does everyone use to clean their livewells? I usually rinse with just water and leave the lids open to air out. However, since it's got 150° here in North Texas they are starting to smell.

I just open the drain and leave the live well lids up, the flies clean it out for me.

Fill them about quarter full with the hose and a good shot of vinegaer. Run the pumps for a few then drain.

I've always used Hydrogen Peroxide and flushed with water. Read on here a few years back to dump a bag of ice in your livewells on the way to the lake, it actually helps clean any stuff off the interior walls of said livewells as the ice shifts around moving down the road.

I bleach mine once a year (multiple rinses afterwards), and no, I've never had a fish die.
