amazing purchase 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. July 29, 2012
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. June 13, 2012
Verdict Still Out When the product arrived by mail, the top was off of it lying in the box and the box was full of the product.Got all over my floor. It remains to be seen just how effective this product is in the bait tank. I expected it to keep the foam off the surface better than it seems to. As to its effectiveness in removing ammonia, seems to work ok for that. April 12, 2011
Shad Keeper I have used this Shad Keeper for several years and it does the best job I have found. We fish Lake Texoma quite a lot and use live Shad. The keeper helps to keep them alive, even over night. I would recommend to anyone that wants to keep their live bait, alive and well. April 1, 2013

A: 
It's a dry granular powder. Can't recall the exact recommended amount to use, but I throw in a couple of tea spoons full for every gallon of live well water and it seems to do the trick just fine.

A: 
its a granule like powder. The bottle should tell you the recommended amount but I believe it is one tablespoon per gallon of water. If your using a insulated bucket with an aerator your bait should be fine as long as you don't overcrowd them. If not using a insulated or temp controlled bucket be mindful that the sun and air temp will make the temp of the water rise try a couple of ice cubes every couple hours if you find the water temp rising.

A: 
The Sure Life Shad Keeper is in a powder form. Use one tablespoon of SHAD-KEEPER™ per gallon of water, or one cupful (9.5 Ounces) per 20 gallons of water. If fish are of poor quality, or when holding blue back herring, double the recommend dosage.

A: 
If you are going to keep Shad alive, you need an aerated tank. If using in live well on boat, you would probably need to put in about a tablespoon every hour or so since the live well replaces the water fairly often.

A: 
as long as your keeping Shad in it then you should have no problems keeping them in any container just keep in mind keeping water temp down and shad constantly are on the swim so the more room they have the better. Keep it temp controlled do not overcrowd it and you will be just fine.

I'm curious if this works well for minnows and if it can be used for 'live wells' for fish caught and the effects it has overall.

A: 
If I understand the question, no you would not use this lure to catch minnows. However, it does an extremely effective job of replicating the behavior of minnows for purposes of catching game fish.
