Had fish to trailer to weigh in in live well- live well was closed; but got to weigh in & water had drained out completely. Fish were ok & I weighed in- any suggestions on what may have happened during trailering as to why wells drained. thanks all.

Live well control valve obviously open. Check/cycle handle several times. Also you can backflush control valve through live well drain fitting. (may have debris in valve preventing it from closing all the way.

I had that happen once. I now insert a plug into the drain if Iā€™m trailering more than 15-20 minutes.
