San Antonio, TX – Conservation is defined as ‘prevention of a wasteful use of a resource.’ For competitive tournament anglers and organizations, conservation is at the forefront of everything we do. The goal is to promote and practice high-quality fish care that helps to keep fish alive and return them back to the lake at full strength, preventing the wasteful use of a resource.
T-H Marine offers anglers an extensive lineup of products designed to help with fish care and protect the fish. “At T-H Marine, we take fish care very seriously,” said Luke Dunkin with T-H Marine. “We have developed a line of products for many years to ensure your bass swim off at the end of the day when you weigh them in, in your tournament.”

The fish care process starts the moment you hook that bass and reel it into the boat. For many years, tournament anglers would attach cull rings to the fish, and would then place the fish in the livewell. These devices proved to be harmful to the fish, leaving lasting irreparable damage on bass. T-H Marine found a non-puncture solution that has proven to be great for tournament anglers and fish care initiatives, that product is the G-Force Conservation Cull System Gen 2.
Designed with the angler in mind, this revolutionary culling system combines functionality, durability, and conservation into one powerful package. Featuring an improved design and advanced features, the Gen 2 edition takes culling to a whole new level. With its precision-engineered clips, you can easily identify, weigh, and record the weight of each fish with utmost accuracy. The color-coded system allows for effortless organization, ensuring that you can quickly differentiate between your catches without any confusion.
Crafted with the highest quality materials, the G-Force Conservation Cull System Gen 2 by T-H Marine is built to withstand the rigors of competitive angling. Its robust construction ensures long-lasting performance, making it a reliable companion on every fishing adventure. The specially designed clips are gentle on fish, minimizing stress and potential harm, guaranteeing their safe release back into the water.

Upon placing the fish in the livewell, the next important fish care practice is to add T-H Marine’s G-Juice Livewell Treatment and Fish Care Formula in to the water. “This is basically like Gatorade for fish,” explained Dunkin. “So, it’s going to get their electrolytes right.”
G-Juice, formerly known as U2 Pro Formula, was developed from over 15 years of research spent in the bait fish, fish transporting, and sportfishing industries. G-Juice is not only a convenient liquid, but also a single phase, full-function water conditioner for use in freshwater and saltwater. G-Juice should be used when conditioning water entering the livewell and in fish transport situations.
- Simple to dose livewell correctly
- Liquid vs. Granular: G-Juice activates instantly!
- Adds essential electrolytes
- Removes chlorine, chloramines, and ammonia
- Aids in maintaining pH
- Promotes healing i.e. “Torn Scales, Hook Punctures”
- Replaces lost or damaged slime coat
G-Juice is a tool that all anglers should have in their boat year-round, but Dunkin stresses the importance of having this product during the summer months. “It’s a product that you should not fish in the summertime without having it in your boat.”
Now that the fish is placed in the livewell with a G-Force Conservation Cull System Gen 2 attached and G-Juice Livewell Treatment and Fish Care Formula conditioning the water, keeping the water inside the livewell at a high quality is the next step. That’s where Dunkin recommends placing The OXYGENATOR in your livewell.
“It’s going to mount in the bottom of your livewell, it’s going to actually use the molecules that are inside the water to create its own oxygen,” noted Dunkin. “It’s been a fantastic product for us for many years.”
The OXYGENATOR Pro Live Well Flush Mount is a livewell oxygen generator that will retrofit most boat live wells from 10 to 20 gallons and operates off the existing boat battery.
The Oxygenator™ manufactures 100% pure oxygen by splitting the hydrogen molecule from the oxygen molecule in water. This creates a super saturated oxygen environment, even in the warmest water. Independent testing shows increasing oxygen in livewell improves fish survival by over 35%. When it comes time to start gearing up for your next tournament, be sure to stock up on these great fish care products from T-H Marine to ensure that your catch is returned back to the fishery alive and healthy for the next generation of anglers to be able to catch!
