    The Super Bait Tank II Manufactured by Livewell Systems

    I wanted to drop a line to my fellow fishing enthusiasts to talk about the Super Bait Tank II, manufactured by Livewell Systems. As the designer of the original “Shad” styled bait tank the Super Bait Tank II over 30 years ago, Ron Vest and Livewell Systems has developed a strong reputation for delivering the highest quality “Shad” styled bait tank on the market for a fair price.

    As you make your bait tank decision, you need to consider; “From whom” you are buying?"

    As the owner of www.superbaittanks.com, StriperFun Inc. is the “online” marketing and point of sales as to “where” customers buy their Super Bait Tanks. It is my honor to be associated with such a top notch product like the Super Bait Tank II and to work with a “class act” like Ron Vest. His reputation for delivering his product on time and as ordered is unsurpassed.

    They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery. If so, then Ron Vest should be very flattered!

    The Super Bait Tank II, as the industry bench mark /leader, has had many people try to duplicate it over the years. As a testament to the quality of Livewell System tanks, no one has ever succeeded in building such a long lasting and superior Shad tank like the Super Bait Tank II. I can attest to this personally as a long time Super Bait Tank owner and professional fishing guide (using a Super Bait Tank II for nearly as long as Ron has been building them!).

    The Super Bait Tank II comes with a 5 year structural warranty on the tank itself (not including the internal pump and parts - which are normal wear items). If you check the imitator’s tanks, most only come with a 90 day structural warranty.

    Ask yourself “why this is?” before you buy.

    The Super Bait Tank II has a year around 90 day waiting list from time of purchase, versus the other lesser tanks for sale that are readily available. There is a reason those other tanks are readily available now and also a reason why people are willing to wait 90 days to get the best Shad tank on the market. If you have ever owned one, you will know why! It is the quality of the tank!

    There have also been a number of rumors flying around on the internet (in various "dubious" fishing blogs!) that Live Well Systems - Super Bait Tanks “has been sold” and/or that the artist that hand makes each tank (Ron Vest) is no longer with the company and will not be making the tanks.

    None of this is true!

    Ron Vest still owns the company and will be making the tanks (as he always has), providing the serious angler with the very best bait tank on the market.

    Please contact me if you have any questions about which Super Bait Tank II is the right tank for your boat. We have standard sizes from 20 to 50 gallons as well as larger tanks available on custom orders.

    You can call me at 931- 403 -2501 or you can learn more about the Super Bait Tank II by clicking: www.superbaittanks.com
