Marine Metal Fish Saver Portable Aerator
Trying something else
I really liked the product design and functionality. However I purchased 2 of these and both failed quickly.
The first one failed when I left my bait overnight, the second time I used the unit. All my bait died and stunk up the cooler it was in. Had to get more bait the net morning. This was after only 2 uses, probably a total of 2 hrs prior to this last usage.
Tried a new unit and it failed after an hour of use. Was working fine and I heard unit slowing down till it just stopped. Thought it might e clogged so I cleaned everything and tried again. Within 5 minutes died again.
Will be looking for something else.

I use the fish saver when I bait fish for catfish. I put it in a 120 quart cooler and normally keep 30 to 40 brem and chubs alive all day and night. For best results use a little bait saver along with some ice. I been using a simuliar areator for 5 years and it also done good, but had alot of problems with the filter getting clogged. I have had the fish saver for about a month and used it several times without any issues. Don't think twice for a reliable areator that works, it also has an adjustable spray head that is really nice.

I baught this aerator for a vacation with my new-to-me boat which does not have a livewell. when i hooked it up, i was so excited at how well it was working! After a couple of hours of use it stopped working. i had to b uy another pump. when i got home i was looking at the thing and noticed rusty water coming out of the rubber seal where the power cord enters the unit. i drilled a small hole in the top and it was full of water. dried it out and coated the whole thing in silicone. hope it work for a little while now.

This product works very well. I have used it a lot of the past couple of years and it has never let me down. I do a lot of catfishing and like to use live bait however i do not fish close to home. I like to paylake fish and this is what i rely on to get my bait from point to point b and still be just as it was when i put it in. If you are like me and want a reliable aerator then this is the one for you.
