I found a few articles, this from Bass Pro

"Livewells: These are easily the second nastiest part of the boat for obvious reasons - especially for you anglers that run around with fresh shad. If the boat is to be in storage for some time, I simply place an opened box of baking soda in each livewell to keep them from collecting odors.

On occasion, you have to buck up and clean out those dirty livewells. those chemicals used to help keep fish alive during tournaments create horrible stains and that's why your livewell has "bathtub rings" in it

To clean your livewell, you can use the same BoatLife Bilge Cleaner - it's non-toxic and biodegradable.

The product can be wiped sprayed onto the surface to be treated. After a few minutes, rinse with fresh water and whisk away fish blood, slime, mold, mildew stains, rust stains and water deposits. It is safe for use on metal, fiberglass, rubber, plastic and painted surfaces. Used as directed, there is no residue left to contaminate fish or damage aerators and pumps. Make sure you get to the sides of the lids where you can't see - it's a prime spot for mildew to start."

CLR-you can buy it at most retail stores. spray it on and let it sit for 3-5 minutes and then wipe it off with a rag and rise. If you haven't tried it already, I'd first try a Mister Clean Heavy Duty Magic Eraser-get it damp and start rubbing, the things truly are magical in what they have taken off of my boat.

I'm at a loss for words. Really? Am I missing the punch line?
