Fishing with Jonny P July 8th

8 posts in this topic

Sorry for the late report. I headed up to Red Lake before Moondance Jam to get in a little guide trip with Jonny P. And once again it was the same ol' story...huge Pike! We casted for Northerns on some of the weed lines and ended up with 2 Trophy class Pike just under 40". Both fish were released to fight another day. Later on in the day we found ourselves a nice little hole for some wallys and ended up with our limit or eaters which West Winds cooked up for us, AWESOME. The water was a little rough that day and I ended up losing my lunch over the boat, which I am sure Ill never hear the end of it from Kelly and Jonny. Thanks again Jonny for the awesome experience and for teaching this rookie how to use a bait caster. If any of you reading the forum are thinking about booking a trip, stop thinking and do it. You will not regret and make sure you bring the camera for all those monster Pike.

      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
