Live well mesh

The Incredible Hull

Recommended Posts

Hi Raiders,

Had a hiccup this morning, where I had squids in my live well, and they kept going to the single skin fitting hole and causing it to block, and my tank was overflowing, there's always a first for everything =P

Just curious what raiders generally use to prevent this. I have a standard size skin fitting, is there any type of mesh that would fit nicely in the hole?

Yes I've had that problem with small squid and gars going through or blocking it up.

I used some galvanised tie wire I had lying around, but preferably use stainless if you have it and I siliconed 2 pieces across the opening to form a "cross" over it. It's not the most scientific or pretty but it has worked for me.

I think a full mesh will restrict the flow too much and clog up easily.
