                          All About Bait and Livewell Tanks - How To Choose One for my Boat

                          Although not a standard feature for a boat, boat livewell tanks are increasingly being incorporated in boat. This accessory comes in a variety of names. They include live bait tank, live bait wells, and fish tanks for boats among many other names. In simple terms, ... read more a livewell tank is simply a compartment or container that is built in or hosted in a boat to hold live bait, as well as fish. The size of the box will vary according to the type and size of boat, duration of keeping the bait, and also the type of fishing whether professional fishing, leisure or just a weekend activity.

                          Types of Live Bait Wells

                          The boat livewells come in a wide range of sizes and shapes. The effectiveness of each type will be determined by availability of material, individual preferences, cost, available space on the boat, and also the type of boat.

                          They can be classified by the following:

                          · Shape: - Normally, the bait tanks come in rectangular (cuboids) or square (cube) shapes. This will fit well in most types of boats. Nonetheless, there are also tanks that are circular (spherical) or cylindrical.

                          · Material: - The tanks can be made from fiberglass, plastic and also thick PVC (polyvinyl chloride). The right material should be strong, durable, waterproof, and rugged and have good insulation properties.

                          · Flexibility: - Some tanks are permanently fixed on the boat either under the deck or below a bench on the deck. Other live tanks are portable hence can be moved from the boat.

                          What Makes Good Live Bait Wells

                          There are no standard rules on what the ideal type of boat livewell tank is. It is usually a matter of research as well as common sense. Nonetheless, there are some factors that must come into play when designing a live bait tank.

                          These are as follows:

                          · Insulation: - In order to keep bait or fish alive, it is necessary to maintain a constant temperature, and a temperature close to their natural surroundings. This is achieved by using an insulated box.

                          · Aeration: - Fish and bait require a good supply of oxygen in order to survive. The oxygen may be supplied by either an electric pump such as a submersible bilge pump, or “venturi” system. Larger species or having a lot of fish requires a higher supply of oxygen to keep them fresh.

                          · Removal of waste: - The water does become quite dirty overtime. It is, therefore, necessary to regularly replenish the tank with clean, fresh water. High concentration of metabolic waste suffocates the bait. Running the pump allows the waste water to be removed, and new water sucked in.

                          · Temperature: - Various fish and bait thrive well in different temperatures. Some species such as cod, koi or salmon require very cool temperatures while other species like bass, betta, perch and other tropical fishes are okay with warm temperature. Ideally, the temperature shouldn’t exceed 24 degrees Celsius (75 degrees Fahrenheit).

                          Benefits of Live Bait Tanks

                          It is only until recently that people started appreciating and embracing the idea of building live bait tanks in boats. Previously, fishermen as well as other boaters were accustomed to using dead bait.

                          Adding a tank for live bait in the boat comes with the following benefits:

                          · Ethical Issues: - Previously, fishermen threw the dead fish back into the water. Other boaters and fishermen never appreciated this practice. It looked cruel to catch fish and toss them back into the water after it was dead.

                          · Cleaner surrounding: - dead bait is never a pleasant sight. In addition, after a period of time, the atmosphere in the boat becomes foul. Dead bait also affects the eco-system.

                          · Better catch: - Fish also like feeding on live fish as opposed to dead fish. A fisherman is thus more likely to have a better experience while using live bait.

                          · Healthy nutrition: - Meals prepared from fresh fish or sea creatures have a higher level of nutrients. This is why shrimps, lobster, prawns and other crustaceans are preferred live.

                          What to Consider When Installing a Boat Livewell Tanks

                          Installing a bait tank is an involving process. It requires proper planning as well as execution. A tank that is too small will become ineffective in the long run. A tank that is too large may cost more and will take too much space especially in a small boat. The factors below should be well thought-out before to buying the bait well.

                          · Size of boat: - A small boat requires a small bait well. In fact, it is more feasible to buy a portable tank that can be removed when needed than buying a fixed one that is not mobile.

                          · Frequency of Use: - People who use the boat for fishing on a regular basis may install permanent tanks. A person who engages in the activity once in a while will benefit most from a simple tank for holding bait.

                          · Type of Fishing: - Large bait tanks will be more suited for professional or commercial fishermen. The cost of the tank will be justified by the gains made from the activity.

                          People who occasionally go out fishing may find it worthwhile to invest in quality livewell tanks. Getting a good tank doesn’t have to be a costly affair. Nevertheless, the benefits gained from installing boat livewell tanks are without argument worth the time and effort. Iboats.com carries a wide variety of high quality livewell and bait tanks at a low cost.
