      I was fired from the About.com fishing site last April and don’t have access to it anymore so I can not correct that page. Sorry

    Hi Ronnie,
    I met you on a cruise a few years back when my (ex) girlfriend and I were seated with you and Linda (and another couple from Toronto at dinner. Just wanted to say hi and if ever down Naples, Fl way look me up, reds and snook are always hot!

      Sorry I didn’t see this for so long. Good to hear from you – I remember that cruise well! Hope you are doing good. I will contact you if I head that way – you do the same if you get to central Georgia – we can go fishing!

    All C & R fishing tournament held in the winter (the dead of winter) should have excellent survival rates. Livewell hypoxia is not an issue in cold livewell water where as in summer livewell water, hypoxia is the killer.

    We worked with Gilliland (1999) in the research phase of “Keeping Bass Alive.” We provided the Oxygen EdgeTM oxygen-injection system , technical instructions and oxygen safety issues, much of technical oxygen system information in the B.A.S.S. publication.

    The problem with summer tournament kills was livewell hypoxia caused by aerated hot livewell water. Supplemental oxygen administration improved summer tournament survival dramatically eliminating livewell hypoxia problem completely. The other option to reduce tournament mortality was to change the Classic Tournament date from the historic hot Dog Days of Summer (August) to the cold dead of winter when the water was cold (February) when safe livewell oxygenation is not an issue.

    Gilliland’s 1999 research caused a major positive change in Bass Master Classic fish survival rates… use livewell oxygen supplementation during summer tournaments to stop the suffocation or have the tournament in the winter when livewell hypoxia is a non-issue in cold livewell water.

        On a hot day ice lasts only a few minutes. You would have to carry several bags and put it in constantly. And if the livewell water is a lot cooler than the lake, when you release the fish the sudden change in temperature may kill them. Better to keep aerators running constantly. We fished a tournament yesterday at Sinclair, water temp 89. Not a single fish died in an eight hour tournament.

    Ronnie — quick question, would you recommend fishing in a 15′ x 46″ aluminum mod-v w/ a 9.9 hp in:

    Lake Juliette

    Lake Tobesofkee

    Thanks, Jeff

      Both lakes are fairly big for a 9.9 but you can fish them ok. Tobosofkee gets really rough on weekends in the summer so you would have to go early and get off the water early, or you are going to have trouble with boat wakes. During most week days you could get by. No wakes at Juliette and you can fish a lot of it from either ramp, but if the wind gets up be careful on open water – it gets very rough very fast.
