1. Livewell Treatment and Fish Care Formula
Hot days can be incredibly rough for tournament bass. Once they go in a livewell, water contaminants, heat, and wounds can be fatal, but there are a few tricks that can help reduce the risk.
Among the top methods anglers trust to keep fish alive is G-Juice, a specialty formula that treats both the water and the fish. In fact, anglers buy it again and again because it’s easy to use, it’s ultra-effective at neutralizing livewell contaminants, it counteracts the effects of heat and stress, and it helps fish heal.
2. Non-Puncture Cull Systems
More and more tournaments are requiring non-puncture culls. Instead, they’re moving to cull systems that clip on a bass’ mouth and hold on without causing damage that makes it hard for a bass to eat and recover later.
With this requirement becoming the standard, it’s a great idea to have some G-Force Conservation Cull Systems on hand.
3. Cull Weights
As the perfect complement to the G-Force Conservation Cull System, G-Force Cull Weights easily clip onto cull clips so bass can overcome swim bladder issues. By keeping the bass from going belly up and combining these weights with the other recommendations here, anglers can significantly decrease gamefish morbidity.
4. Livewell Vents
Livewell vents are for customers who don’t mind a little DIY work, but they are probably the easiest livewell upgrade that anyone can do. Once an angler follows the instructions for punching the right-size hole in their livewell lid, they can properly vent their livewell and prevent it from becoming a toxic place for their fish.
5. Oxygenation Systems
Oxygenation systems take a bit more work, but they’re still a great purchase for weekender DIYers. These systems add oxygen to livewell water so fish can breathe easier, especially on hot days, and that makes them incredibly valuable for tournament anglers.
Maybe your tackle shop caters to anglers who want every edge or maybe you do retrofit installation work — either way, the Oxygenator and Pro-Air System are two of the best oxygenation upgrades that you can offer.
