Chumming Fish With Oxygen – Oxy-Chum Tips

WEBSITE UPDATED               Thursday  February 24 2022      

In oxygen poor lakes, rivers and ponds, chumming live bait and game fish with pure dissolved oxygen attracts fish more effectively than food or the “spawn.”

OXY-CHUM™ IN THE SUMMER AND LATE WINTER FOR FUN AND TOURNAMENT PROFITS

On a cold winter hot while the water surface is frozen, just before surface ice begins to thaw, try bubbling pure oxygen into environmental water about 15 feet deep around a structure known to hold fish and see what’s attracted and consolidates.

In your oxygenated oasis, bait fish arrive first, then gamefish and predator fish accumulate in a healthy artificially enriched oxygenated oasis you’ve created with Oxy-Chum™.

That’s “Oxy-Chumming.” The tactic is seasonal and effective when the environmental dissolved oxygen concentrations are below normal in the summer and late winter.

Artificially improving poor environmental dissolved oxygen concentrations stimulates the “bite” and feeding. Make fish bite in July and August when the bite naturally slows down simply by artificially manipulating environmental dissolved oxygen concentrations.

Fish, like people, are get hungry, but they do not eat well when arterial blood oxygen levels are hypoxic.  Every summer, fish’s basal metabolism peaks for the summer in the Dog Days of Summer.

To our knowledge there are no fishing tournament rules, State game laws or EPA codes restrict, prevent, inhibit or deny chumming tournament game fish or any other wild fish with pure oxygen.
