SHAD-KEEPER™ Shad & Blue Back Herring Holding Formula

This is one of our best selling specialty products. Not only does SHAD-KEEPER™ totally condition shad holding water, but it also removes harmful ammonia from the water. Ammonia and surface foam are two of the key reasons these types of baitfish have been so hard to keep alive in the past. With SHAD-KEEPER™, no other products are necessary, and complete success is obtained in keeping the bait alive so that more time can be spent productively fishing. This product has been chemically engineered to be in a class by itself.

Along with removing ammonia and surface foam, SHAD-KEEPER™ adds all necessary electrolytes shad and herring need. SHAD-KEEPER™ also removes harmful chlorine from city water and melting ice, and any heavy metals which may be found in the water. The oxygen content of the water is enhanced and scales are hardened.

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.

Other helpful hints include:

When catching shad or purchasing shad, cool tank water to low 60's or within 10°F of original source of shad water. This will help decrease initial shock.
Round or oval shaped tanks work best in keeping shad alive.
Always wet hands before handling shad.
Maintain water temperature in mid 60's if no filtration unit is used on tank. If tank has filtration system, then water temperature may be kept in mid 70's.
Maintain caution when doing partial water changes, so that pH of water is not changed drastically on shad.
