Well I came up with a brain storm! for those really hot days in the valley I'm gona take my livewell pump and rig up a mister for the boat that attaches to my fishing top, shouldn't be to hard to do and should drop the boat temp a bit.. just thought I would share,, I'll let you know how it works

As a collaborative design, I would suggest adding a small filter to the system to keep the emitters from clogging.

Will you get enough pressure ? Thouse jets are tiny

Now that's using your noggin. I suspect we'll start seeing them as standard equipment on skiboats and high end fishing boats ;)

Not the high end fishing boats! Remember, they don't think things out before they build them.

Mo, there's a 3 page thread on this forum that says so. It has to be true! Started by Doc, no less.

Hi guy's,

We have done this in the past to fish the valley Kokanee derbies in the heat. You will need a high pressure wash down pump not a high volume low pressure bait or live well pump.

You will also need a fine screen filter to prevent small particles from entering your lines.

The misters will work but it is very hard to keep them from clogging.

My boss built one for his boat and it works well but you have to use a high pressure pump and a pressure bypass to get it to work right he had aout 200.00 into it befor it was up and running but he loves it there it a placw on line that sell the kit ill post the link if i can find it

I'll do some resurch on the pumps and see what I come up with, can't imagin I need anything over 30psi to make it work.. gota do sumpin cause it's friggin hot out there and my fishin buds deserve the best..

The filter will keep debris out but what about alkyln lakes like Eagle and Pyramid? We might need a water treatment step in the process.

07-20-2005, 03:04 PM
they make a filter for that too the site should have it if not let me know and ill ask where he got it

Use to fish with a guide on the Sac for salmon in August and he installed a 12volt system and it was fantastic, if you have ever spent the day on the uppper Sac you know how hot that could get. Just remember to wear sunscreen as that mist on your skin acts like a magnfying glass. I speak from experiance on that one I was burned to a crisp :'( :'(

you have to much time on your hands, it would be better spent on a lure that works every time.
