Livewell Noob
« on: April 19, 2017, 07:49:02 PM »

I just got my first bass boat, a 2017 179 TrX. Even though it's my third fishing boat, I've used the livewell in all three of them a grand total of one time. . .  and that was two boats ago. I'm fishing a tourney tomorrow and have no idea how the livewell works. To top it off, my livewell has three different pumps. I've never seen a more complicated setup.

So, how do I operate my livewell? Do I put leave the drain plug in or take it out? I'm guessing "in". In what positions should the switches for the livewell be? I think that Recirc Manual would fill it and Recirc Auto would circulate it after it's full. But I'm not sure. Help!

Did you get the owner's manual with the boat? If you didn't I would go back to the dealer and ask them to go through the boat with you.

I leave plugs in. Manual will give continuous flow of lake water. Recirculation will keep the water moving. Auto will add and move water at intervals. Triton have a pump out as well. In Maine it is required to have live wells on manual vs on a timer. I believe a good practice. If you are using GJuice recirculation manual.

Congrats on the new ride.

I'm not a bass tourney guy, but joined a buddy's club this season, because it lost several members. I'd been fishing with my buddy for years as a sub for his son, who would tap out every time the weather was bad or Tom Brady was on TV. The club is small; only six boats, now.

The first tourney didn't go so well for me and my partner. :(  We were the only team out of six who had to do The Walk of Shame to the weigh-in. So, no, I haven't figured out how my livewell works, because I didn't need it. I just knew that I should have thrown the couple of trout we caught in there, just to see how it works. In case you were wondering, we also caught a small chain pickerel and three short largemouth bass.

Hopefully, I'll have some fish to throw in there during the tourney next weekend. And, hopefully, they'll be bass, not trout.

Catching something is better than a total blank. Always like to weigh in but sometimes the fish win :surrender: I'd have kept those trout to eat  :-*
