Tournament anglers have two goals when they hit the water. 1) catch 5 legal bass and 2) keep them alive for weigh-in. Goal number one seems to outweigh goal two in most fishing articles and videos. Yes catching them has to happen first but keeping them alive is just as important.
A few months ago I wrote about the benefits of adding the V-T2 Livewell System to your boat (read post here). With Tournament season a mare three days away I finally had a non-rainy cold day to install my V-T2’s.
The process is simple and painless (assuming you can bring yourself to cut two holes into your bass boat). The process takes about 15 minutes. You need a 3” hole saw, a 9/64 drill bit and a 5/16 socket or wrench. In the video below I used a towel to catch the shavings from drilling the hole. V-T2 recommends a garbage bag, which after installing my set would have been a better option.
If you want to find out more about the V-T2 System you can check them out at Newproproducts.com. The 49.99 you spend might just be the difference between a live bass and a dead one, which could be a check in your pocket. Make sure you check out the V-T2 System, you don’t want to regret it later.
