A clarification about using hydrogen peroxide in live wells

Postby Terry » Tue Jun 24, 2008 2:45 pm

In the post below about the new special conditions at Diamond Valley, one of the subsequent posters in the thread suggested using hydrogen peroxide in the livewell to produce O2. Gene Gilliland and Hal Schramm, in their booklet Keeping Bass Alive say that H2O2 "can injure fish and should not be used" because it damages the gill filaments. "Damage to gill filaments, suffocation and death may result", according to the authors.

The Department of Fish and Game asks that anglers and tournament organizations do not use hydrogen peroxide as a livewell water additive.

The booklet mentioned above is very informative and available online. I will add the site after I post.

Sure-Life recommendations using hydrogen peroxide:
http://www.sure-life.com/pdf/bass_champ ... n_tips.pdf
Any questions concerning using 3% hydrogen peroxide should be directed to Lane Gergely:830/556.4801
Reports of hydrogen peroxide being harmful to bass where based on commercial use with stronge 35% solution, not the 3% over the counter solution as recommended by Sure-Life, manufacture of Catch & Release and other livewell solutions to keep bass healthy.

Instead of all the chemicals, couldn't a person use a 12 volt air pump with a stone on the end of the hose? OR>>> We all have water pumps on our live well right? Couldn'[t we just drain the bad water ,and add fresh every so often? I really don't like to idea of giving the fish chemicals. Their natural water is probably the best thing for them.

I vote for airpumps and stones, and fresh water! :lol: :lol:
