Ice, fizz them and add a livewell treatment, those will keep them alive and well.

Pure oxygen is where it's at.

Yes sir...haven't lost a fish since adding these to my wells. I also use Please Release Me...when I transport fish from water to weigh in site.

Too much ice will kill them. Unless it's non-chlorinated ice. You could also use prime or API Stress coat to remove the chlorine.

Correct, see the chart on page 4. https://www.bassmaster.com/sites/de...ce/KeepingBassAlive_guidebook%20comp.pdf If waster temp is over 75 put your flowrite on recirc, flush with fresh lake water every 3 hours. 8lbs of ice will cool a 30 gallon livelwell 10° for 3-4 hours. These steps will keep them alive for weigh in but more importantly will reduce delayed mortality too.
