De-Stinking Live Well

5 posts in this topic

Other than not catching any fish, what's the best way to get the "fish slime" smell out of a live well? I'm thinking of soaking it with water and baking soda for a couple of days. Any better ideas?

I have found rinsing it with warm water, draining it and just letting it dry out works (lid open). Takes about a week, but works.

This works with coolers also. My cut bag of sucker leaks once and awhile and it takes about a week to get the smell gone..

Good luck

I've used mix of baking soda and hot water and scrubbed it out and let it sit for awhile with the lid open and can't notice a smell and I do that for my coolers too, when I put my fish in them on blocks of ice, my wife doesn't like fish smelling beer cans for some reason grin

Salt water works also (same thing, fill it and let it soak then rinse it out good) but since I haven't tried the baking soda I can't say which one works better.

We have a product called Biozyme. Stuff really works. Just spray it around and it does the work. Skeeter12

    • 70 HP Johnson motor.  Older model, but low hours on it.  Starts up fine, but when I go to give it gas the engine bogs down and won't come anywhere near running as fast as it should.  Anyone have any thoughts on the cause?  Wondering if maybe the carbs need to be cleaned.  If so, anyone know how much of a job that is?   Thank you in advance for any feedback.
    • The Warriors won't lose anyone that wants to stay with them since Durant is basically sitting back and saying pay my boys and then we will take care of business.  Hard to lure a free agent from them if their studs take such paycuts...
    • Score!! Nice find.
    • I still don't like the Hanzal/White trade.  I can see a team that is on the edge or coming into the playoffs as a 6,7,8 seed, but at the time, the Wild was 1st in the West and everything was going great.  I really didn't see a reason why they needed to change or bring in other players.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  They could have brought guys up from Iowa down the stretch to spell the vets and give them some motivation.   I'd like to know what Baby Boudreau wants to change or what he would like to see on the team. It would be nice to have somebody that really knows and wants to work the front of the net.  Parise is the closest thing we have to that and that isn't good for his longevity.  Be nice if Coyle embraced a role like that and used his size out front.  
    • Probably because most people wouldn't sell one of these for that much. I'm not sure why they did and well I didn't ask. Maybe they didn't like it as even being a older grill it had hardly been used and looks like new. I already had a Holland Companion grill that works great but this is even better. 
    • Skol!  I'm excited to see how Cooks pans out.  He seems legit so far!  What was the deal with KFAN ditching the rubechat forums?  I know the political page could get a little overheated at times but the others seemed pretty tame.  Too bad! 
    • Wow!! Now THAT's a deal!!!!!!! Why can't I find stuff like that?! 
    • Well not exactly new. Found this at a yard sale for $40.     
    • Havnt seen him for a while and is a lot bigger now.
