Went out for a few hours this afternoon chasing eyes. Not much luck for them but got into some beautiful crappies from 11.5-12.5" as well as some nice sized slimers. All fish caught were released. Water temps were still 60 degrees. Need some cool weather. Some nice fall colors too.

blasin e-mail me please. Its getting to that time of year where the crappies are going to school up over structure off of deeper waters. Still a bit warm but when we get into the lower 50's they will really start to put on the feedbags as will the eyes. Both crappies and eyes will use the same areas of the river this time of year. Most often the crappies will be either suspended or in the thick of the structure. The eyes will be right around there as well but usually not up in the water colomn in these areas.

Blasin were ya above or below boyscout?

We fishd all the way from Garfield to Boyscout. But the crappies were caught below Boyscout. I did mark a bunc of fish in 25 fow water that I pretty sure were eyes but they wouldn' go for us. Didn't get out in the harbor at all.

Load I was just curious about the location and if I was right about it.

Now about that Drew comment. Funny but you know me better than that.

As far as that spot I hit it a few times and it paid off big time to times in a row but the last few times has been real slow. Ya many many snags in there.

I have a new one for ya though. Not far at all from there.

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

      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
