Default mystery death of bait in well?

Had about 20 live pinfish and cigs in my 30 gallon livewell pumping fresh water in from under the boat. We had the baits in the well for about 3 hours and were doing great. We were sitting on the three barges when all of a sudden the baits all started looking stuned and died. I can't figure it out. Jack thought it was possible that the oyster fish/toadfish/mother in law fish, slime that was on his hands that he rinsed off in the bait well could have caused it. I have never heard of this, but I can't think of any other reason. What do you guys think?

I had this happen once when we had a bad red tide and ran through a area effected. However I was sitting on anchor when this happened. It is a real mystery to me.

Sunscreen. . . It'll kill em every time in under 5 minutes.
We've killed two and three hundred baits at a time because somebody applied and forgot to wash their hands off.

Sunscreen for sure, that's happened to us before, you gotta make sure people wash their hands, it's best to use a net to dip the bait anyway, and i started using that spray on bull frog sun screen, it works great and you don't have to get any on your hands at all
