Dead and dying fish in the bait tank can make all the difference to a day on the water. Baitfish such as shad, shrimp, pilchard and crabs are easily distressed during transportation and can perish through lack of oxygen even before they are loaded on the boat.
That’s why Frabill has introduced its new 1436 Floating Pump, an aeration system designed to run all day and to work equally well in both saltwater and freshwater.
The bait maintenance device drifts across the surface of the bait tank while sucking in air, mixing it with water and pushing it back into the tank as bubbles of oxygen.
The system’s low current pump is whisper-quiet, says Frabill, and when clipped to a 12-volt battery will provide all the power you need. It is suitable for small bait containers as well as larger tanks up to 30 gallons.
It produces close to 100% saturation of dissolved oxygen and the direction of the oxygenated bubbles can be easily adjusted. A replaceable filter removes debris from the livewell. The system comes with a six-foot power cord and copper battery clips with on/off switch.
US company Frabill specialises in bait containers and bait care, ice fishing equipment, landing nets and premium raingear, including the F-Series Storm Gear.
