Tell me more- how is it plumbed? Can you get a bigger pic of it in the boat? I don't plan on transporting fish, but maybe carry it in the height of summer when temps are higher and fishe are pressured....

ya i can snap some more pictures theyre pretty nice, as far as plumbing you need to have a wash down pump on your boat thats where it gets it water supply then theres a hole on the other side where it drains out of. he puts a 1 1/4 insert hose fitting if you wanted to run a drain line i just let it flow on the floor and out my scuttles. btw its portable i can bring it on anyones boat long as they have a wash down pump. i looked into making one but to have a shop just make 1 tank would cost more then to buy one hes done all the work too,and i still would of had to buy all the hardare,fittings,handles,hinge,etc... sometimes he has flawed ones, where the tank might be slightly bowed he sells for less, he had one when i got mine for the little difference in money i opted for the unflawed one seeing its a one time purchase item

Nah, I think it's OK. I asked. The advertising thing is for posting direct links, or for someone to roll in and sell stuff. I don't see a problem with a happy customer giving contact info for a product like this.

I've got washdown on my boat, but don't have it connected. Hmmm....I'll think about it. It'd eat up a good portion of the back of my boat.

Esox,

I have spent quite a few hrs in 620s, don't they have a well that would accommodate a 50" fish for a few minutes while it revives?

That is a cool looking livewell and A FAT little Ski.

I know you were just trying to revive that fish before releasing it but I would think twice about placing an undersized fish in a livewell. If the DNR showed up at that time or was watching you from a distance (which they do) I don't think that you could convience them that you were going to release the fishing.

The guide states:

Between 42" - 50". All fish less than 42" and greater than 50"
must be released immediately.

I would hate to see you get fined.

I've got a 620 hull, not a 620 interior. I've got a center console bay interior. Which are not known for storage or livewells. I've got a baitwell/cooler and a livewell on the back/center. I've got plenty of room on the floor, but fill it up with a net, a 90 lb lab and my huge bag of flies-48" Simmes duffel and spaces gets eaten up. I use my livewell for wet storage like drift socks, the dog's life jacket after he goes for a swim, and wet towels after I wipe the boat down.

Boat Light Vehicle Wood Gas

Plant Hood Vehicle Motor vehicle Automotive tire

The back right is batteries/PP pump/wiring, and back left used to be my remote oil reservoir, but is now first aid kit/second fire extinquisher/rescue. The center hatch is the live well.

I really like the idea of the live well, but for the number of fish (very few) that I boat, I don't know if it'd be worth it. I could just as well hang the fish over the side on the Boga and hit the MinnKota on the remote and pull water over the gills like that.

thanks for your concern but the local dnr know we c/r fish and tank fish for their benefit to release when were confident shes well rested. theyd look at my rig and set ups and know i wasnt some guy with a random catch trying to keep it.are you stating sturgeon slot limits ? muskie just have to be over 42 mich 44 canada to be legally kept no maximum release size
