But as to keeping them longer or it being some secret way of keeping more bait alive in a livewell, well all that is false. I've tested that theory all last year and your bait is still prone to it's same morbidity rate without it as well as if you over fill the well.
For 40 years of dealing with these little suckers at 88 degree water on the flats.
