Hydrogen Peroxide in live wells?

It works. Studies done by Texas Parks & Wildlife showed it gives a near immediate short term boost of oxygen (~40% greater) that lasts between 30-60 minutes depending on livewell design and amount of bass held. I used to always carry a bottle on board when tourney fishing during the hottest portion of the summer.

Yes it works.  Use it in combination with Catch and Release formula for the best, non-harmful fish care.

Works good, did this for decades during summer night tournaments; 1/2 cup for 15 gallon livewell oxygenates the low DO night surface water.

The Trolling Motor Dr sponsored local ABA night tournaments at Castiac and Casitas in the late 80’s & 90’s and handed out info using OTC 3% hydrogen peroxide to save bass and handed out Catch & Release to contestants.
