Bait and live well oxygenators by Aqua Innovations

2 posts in this topic

Hey all,
Just received my Aqua Innovations "Magnum" unit. This baby looks to be the bomb as far as keeping your bait and fish in tip-top shape.
The Magnum can oxygenate up to 32 gallons of water, perfect for your boats live well or your minnow tank at home!
I will be putting this baby through the wringer as far as testing goes, but as I sit here looking at it, it looks to be very durable and well made. It runs off of a 12 volt battery, is compact and easy to install.
Keep checking this thread, or click this link-

for more information on this great new product!

They also have a Oxygenator bait keeper. These are not aerators that only get up to 53% saturation in ideal conditions. The aerators also have to run continuosly.

The Oxygenator only runs as long as it needs to while producing pure oxygen by separating the oxygen molecules from the hydrogen in a water molecule. How does 98% saturation sound to you?

Very effecient method of saturating the water with high levels of oxygen and keeping your expensive bait alive many times longer than without or even with an aerator.

Low power usage as well. It only runs when oxygen levels run low unlike constantly running an aerator or livewell.

These babies will pay for themselves quickly by keeping your bait thriving and alive where they would normally die because of low oxygen levels.

Bait is expensive, now keep them thriving and lively for use the next day or even later. How many times have you had your expensive shiners die on you?

Keep your bait healthy and lively. Also keep your fish alive in your livewells without having to run the livewell to keep it aerated. Dead fish start to spoil quickly. Keep them alive as long as possible.

Fresh fish is the best.

    • I was fortunate to see a tanager, blue-winged warbler, and a couple of young cranes all in one morning  on a walk in a park this week.       
    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
