(Mar 15, 2015 - Plano, TX)
It’s been a long drive to your fishing destination in the middle of Nowheresville. Dirt roads narrowing to trails, hills, dales and humps and bumps all the way. No cell service. No hustle. No bustle. Just you, your bud and a shoreline full of fish that haven’t seen an angler’s hook in a long, long time.
Gear’s unloaded and you’re ready to make your first cast. Presumably, life is good.
But the moment you open the bait tank you could see something's amiss. Floaters. All of them. Every last one bellied up at the surface. And not a bait shop for miles.
The fact of the matter is shad, pilchard, shrimp, crabs and most every distressed aquatic critter uses up more oxygen than if they were just swimming about in their native environment. Even something as ordinary as a ride in the back of a pickup truck can turn a subsurface creature into a heavy breather when they are being thrashed about in a minnow bucket.
A proper aeration system that has the ability to run all day, and then some, is the only way to combat an extended road or boat trip without killing your precious live bait cargo.
Introducing Frabill’s new 1436 Floating Pump System – built to endure the nemesis known as saltwater. (Naturally, it handles freshwater effortlessly.) The bait-maintenance device drifts across the surface while sucking in air, mixing it with water and blasting it back infused with tiny bubbles of life-giving oxygen. And that’s 360-gallons-per-hour of nearly 100% oxygen-enriched, gently-flowing H20, so it works wonders in small bait containers as well extra-large tanks up to 30 gallons.
The whisper-quiet Floating Pump System draws minimal power, too, and when clipped to a 12-volt battery, will run longer than you can.
