frisky and healthy even during hot Florida summers. The

Oxygen Infusor for my bait tank. My bait is staying lively overnight for my
trip the next morning. Before using KeepAlive, I was losing 2 to 3 shiners overnight and the ones that lived were
very sluggish and lifeless. The KeepAlive

Captain Charlie tells us: "My problem has been the same as everyone else on the Gulf
Coast. The amount of bait that my livewell would support was cut by 50-75% when the water
got above 78 degrees. This has always meant that bait collecting was a big part of the
charter for at least half the year. Since using the KeepAlive
Oxygen Infusor System, I found that during the summer, even with water over
85 degrees, I could fill my bait well with enough threadfin herring (the most delicate
bait of all) and scaled sardines, to fish for the entire day. Even at the end of the day,
the left-over bait was just as lively as it had been when first caught in the

to transport my bait to where I launch the boat to fish. I also
sell them in my shop, because I know they work."

River Guides is a top professional guide on the east coast of Florida. Captain Bill tells
us: "The first time I discovered the KeepAlive
Oxygen Infusor was in February 1997, during
the Frank Sargent Show at Tampa, FL. At first I was skeptical but then I installed
the KeepAlive Oxygen Infusor
and was immediately impressed. The pump was actually keeping
shrimp alive for 2 days in my boat, on my trailer, in my yard! During the summer
(June - September) the water temperature was 85 - 88 degrees and still the shrimp lived!
This is my second summer using KeepAlive
and now I simply use the
Oxygen Infusor everyday of the year. No
ordinary water pump can measure up! Give KeepAlive a try and you will save money on your live bait!"

Wade Osborne of Afishionado Guide
Services is a professional guide in the Tampa Bay area. Captain Wade Osborne says: "At certain times of the year
catching live bait can take
hours. Once caught they need to stay frisky. I use a KeepAlive
KA700RK recirculator on my live well and a raw
water pick up, but water pumps can spook
noise sensitive fish, like snook and redfish. When moving into those
area's I shut my water pump off and use
recirculator. I do the same in
the winter when I run up one of the numerous rivers or creeks the
Suncoast has to offer to fish. This keeps brackish water out and the proper water salinity in for delicate
threadfins and pilchards. On those hot sweltering summer days, when the
water temperature is approaching 85degrees,

accentual equipment. The millions
of air bubbles the KeepAlive
pumps into the water keeps my bait
lively and happy all day long. Well, at
least until it's about to be inhaled
by a big fish! KeepAlive,
bait can't survive without it! Neither can
