I have to get out and check out the upper Cannon River. The lakes along the river shoud have a good bite going if it's up a foot or two.

You must be reading my mind or vice-versa. I'll never forget that advice you gave me about a year ago.

Glad you got some rain. Most lakes were needing it bad. I would guess that you will get some more.

I've been hitting the inflows and haven't had any luck yet only carp as far as I've seen but I bet the fish will start hitting anytime now

The area lakes could have used the low water for another year or to so the lakes could rejuvinate themselves. I understand peoples complaints with access not being high enough, but the lakes have not even come close to any low water cycle "bottom" yet. With the water clarity issues around Mankato the lakes need signifacant drawdowns to settle mud and regrow weeds that are important to the lakes. If the lakes could go down another 1-3 feet for a year or two it wood knock down the curly leaf pond weed that has a strangle hold on our area lakes. With the pond weed down the other weeds would have a chance to take hold again. For my 2 cents worth. The Lake Washington association is destroying the lake with there every year spraying of the lake. No weeds and the lake is the muddiest I have ever seen it in my life. No weeds to break up the wave action and boat wake action.

You make some excellent points. I like the way you think.

I just hope that the tetonka lake association looks what happened to washington before they keep spray here. I was on washington last week, we had a hard time finding a weed bed of any kind. Someone is not telling all they know about the week killer they are using. mad.gif

I agree ken, since they started spraying on Washington its hard to find weeds like there use to be.

      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
