Anybody been out on Battle...

8 posts in this topic

for Muskies?

I usually would have been out there several times by now, but it hasn't worked out this year.

Seeing any fish? Caught any fish?

I was out there open water trolling in the 30-40 mph winds last thursday. Marked a lot of big fish in 50 feet of water 10-18 feet down. Other then that nothing. To windy to stand up while casting. I did hear people are catching some smaller fish.

Good luck I might be around there this weekend!!!

Brian-

Did I run into you at the WBL city access and chat about trolling muskies last year? Just curious...

10-18 feet down. That's right in the wheel house.

I'll be up in a week, and I'll hit it hard for the first time. Last year, the 3rd weekend in June was very good to me.

I will too, but not fishing muskies.

Wish I could share a report, but my boat's been dry for weeks.

Hopefully all this rain will go away soon... crazy.gif

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
