Cooter:

That pastured valley makes me salivate. Good looking place to set-up shop for awhile.

Good work on the bird. We've only killed one bird that was missing a spur......but a dandy it was, just like yours.

That pasture was full of turkeys this year. Usually its better in fall but the past few years its been real good in spring again. When I first started hunting the area was unbelievable then my uncle and as of now every surrounding patch of timber has been logged. Its great for deer and I think some of the old cuttings have matured enough where there is a good diversity and the birds are coming back more in spring. Not just the pastured areas but we also have been planting some rye, corn, clover, etc plus some new hay seeding to help. I've been hunting elsewhere the past 6 years but may have to reconsider! To be honest, I've been bumped from one good spot to the next but have always been fortunate enough to have great areas to hunt.

      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
