This is why sealed live wells should be on every angling vessel.
Not all boats come with sealed live wells, but they are necessary to protect your catch. Watch as this angler shows you how to seal your live wells by using an aftermarket product.
It's important because unsealed live wells pose dangers to a fish's health in rough waters. As you just saw, this angler's sealed live well helps keep his fish safe when he's moving the boat or experiencing rough weather.
Keep in mind the live well should be filled to the top when moving the fish. He was using AmeriSeal Multi-Purpose Weather Strip to seal his well, and all he had to do was secure it to the rim. This seals them so when the boat is moving drastically the fish won't get thrown around in the live well.
