Best for the
Bass - Part One

that I have received from everyone the past couple of months for my
new business venture. With out a doubt BassMedics™ Rejuvenade™ has
been the premier product for my new company. It is the most
conservation minded fish care product on the market and I am pleased

Even though fall
is just around the corner, keep in mind that fish care is an ongoing
requirement for ALL fishermen. Many times, we "forget" to take care
of the fish once the water starts cooling down. However, just
because the weather is cooler, the water temps will stay in the
80's, sometimes into the month of October. The benefit of

lowers the oxygen carrying capacity of the water.

This helps to calm the fish, as well as
increases the oxygen carrying capacity of the water.
always dip fresh water into your bag when in the weigh
in line. Many tournament groups use bags with out holes. While
this is great for the fisherman, it can be death to the fish!
Typically, fish held in 85-degree water can deplete the oxygen in
the water in less than a minute. Obviously, this is very harmful to
the fish and can increase their stress levels.
