Just started using this product the past month. Does not work very well. But I am still trying it. If it gets better then i will update this review.

I catfish at least 2 times a week sometimes everyday and sometimes at night. I use a insulated bait bucket and aerator and a old salt 8 foot cast net and I always use shad for catfish as I find according to the size of the shad I have caught some great cats around 15-25 lb range and i find that the best way to present shad is fresh and this product accomplishes just that. I put the recommended amount in my 4.25 Gallon bucket fill the bucket almost to the top start the aerator then cast my net. Be sure to wet your hands before handling them but the first time I used this product I had 12 3-4 inch shad alive and I removed the last one 7 hours later and it was still alive and 100% healthy not one of those dozen died or was damaged in any way. if your bait bucket is not insulted after awhile put a few ice cubes in there to keep the temp down. Don't rock them around too much when transporting them to your fishing spot and use Shad-Keeper and I promise your bait will stay calm and healthy for as long as you need them.

Keeps bait fish healthy
Have long been frustrated with the rapid decline of bait fish in my live well (such as shiners) over the course of a fishing day. Not to mention if I try holding any over that I wasn't able to finish using until the next fishing day. This product produces a noticeable improvement in the health of my bait fish over the course of a fishing day and even the next. Any residual "scent" left on the bait doesn't seem to have adversely affected the number of bass that I land.

Shad Keeper Works!
Followed directions and kept shad alive for 6 day fishing trip on Lake Cumberland in 95 degree heat. I was amazed, I only lost 3 or 4 shad out of over 100. It is important to have a recirulator and change 1/4 of water everyday as instructed.
