Default Another menhaden question

Can anyone comment whether menhaden will survive in a wire pen holding container(30" x 24") left overnight at your dock and loaded up in the boat's livewell upon embarkling at 6 AM the next morning to catch kings?

depends on how much current there is flowing thru the cage. If the do live ya better haul ass.

This has been my experience, they are pretty wimpy, i think water temp has alot to do with that also. They would prolly do better now than in august.

depending on how big your livewell is and how many you put in it. most of the time you can catch so many. first mistake is to try and keep all of them. i have a large circulating livewell and i would not put more than dozen large. they are sure to live if you didn't hurt them with the net. if they start turning red you better use them fast because they are all most dead.
