98.4% successful live release plus hours of successful transport is really impressive and unmatched to date! And they said this could never be done in large summer bass tournaments or any other kind of C&R fishing tournament. THAT'S JUST PURE HUMBUG!

Succes like this is the New Reality but are bass really worth all this effort and new technology? Very few contestants and tournamen officials say yea and do it but most contestants and tournament organizers say hail nay, to much additional cost, to much trouble, to much his and that yada, yada, yada!

This kind of live release success requires motivation, effort and especially the new oxygen-injection livewell technologies that is available today for bass boat livewells and live release haul tanks.
B.A.S.S. and TP&WD Inland fisheries sets a high fisheries conservation bar for all other summer bass tournament operations and contestants.

I have a question for you Classic followers: Do any of you actually know, did you see or have any clue what popular brand of bass saver livewell chemicals/supplements/ Hydrogen peroxide/ice that contestants actually used in their boat livewells all 3 days at the 2021 Classic and in the TP&WD hauling tanks?

If so, what free chemicals and supplements did B.A.S.S./TP&WD require, issued and used pre-blast off in all 54 bass boat livewells?

Sharing information on the New Best Ways to Keep Bass Alive in hot summer tournaments.
Thanks

Really odd post to read.

Only thing I saw was someone put g-juice directly on to a bass. Only other thing I saw in a live well was melted bags of ice.

Them fish were floating in the state park later, just because you live release them doesn't mean they have long happy life afterwards.

Just get $40 livewell vents & skip all this other non-sense. Had the TD at my last derby comment how lively my fish were compared to others. They work.

Did you witness this yourself or just repeating what you heard? Those fish were weighed at the lake and not transported so the trip had nothing to do with it.

That is what I did also and have never lost a fish in the 3 years I have had them.. I do keep G juice on my boat if needed.

someone posted a few weeks ago that there were 1050 tournament boats on guntersville in one day.....this lake gets pounded every day of the year yet it produces great fishing and has for years.....two things to remember...if tournaments hurt the fishing,this lake would have been ruined years ago......and why do tournaments not hurt the fishing....because spawning bass produce far more fingerlings than the lake can ever sustain....

Guntersville is full of grass. Grass seems to be the best cover for fish to flourish.

They brought them back and released them and yes they had plenty floating out in the middle maybe 98 percent when released. Maybe....

How were you able to tell which ones were weighed at the lake and which ones were transported to Ft. Worth and brought back?

I wasnt. Its not like their 98 percent claim is broken up between ones weighed at lake and ones brought all the way to ft worth. So why does it matter?

No different than what I witness you do at a tournament on Lewisville. If it weren't for other boaters the fish you released would have died.
