Tuna, Spanish Mac's & Bonita Tubes

(All 6 tubes have flow valves)

Finally a bait tube shaped like the bait we use.  The New "Tunaform"  tuna tubes are shaped to fit tuna, bonita
spanish mackerel small blue fish and many of our most popular baits. The model TF-6M will fit bait up to
approximately 7 pounds. By shaping the the tube to fit the bait a tighter fit occurs allowing more water to pass through the baits gills instead of around its body.  The molded 1 pc tube tray features 6 tubes that are fed individually from (2) intake manifolds, one on each side of the tank.  The water in each tube is completely adjustable using 6 ball valves. 

The water enters the manifold intake from the pump (1" or 3/4" barbed fitting) then is split into  (2) 3 way manifolds, one on each side of the tank. Inside the tank flex hose connects the 3 way to each tube. 

Water enters the tube from the oval coned bottom and overflows into the tank at the top of the tube through drain holes Two 1/2" drain fittings drain the tank . Any water that is splashed to the top, drains back from the splash tray into the tank. A end of day drain cap is also installed to drain the tank completely at the end of the day.
