Don't tell me that the rain kept ALL of you off the river this weekend! It's Sun nite and by now there is usually a pretty good post of people and there weekend stories. Maybe we are all alittle down after losing to the Cheese-Heads!

I made it out yesterday a.m. and got a couple hours of trolling in before the skys opened up on me and the wind kicked up twenty notches. I was near Prescot when those storms moved in and thought that maybe I could hide under the bridges there and wait it out. WRONG!! It rains harder underneth them than outside cause they are just metal grates. Anyways, I knew the cover on my boat would come in handy one of these days and it did it job perfectly. I was able to troll around and hide out under it and barely needed a rain suit. I did stay around the bridges for awhile, atleast until the lightning died down.

Getting the fish to bite was a different story. I didn't get a single bite before or during the rain. I was trolling and I tried several different baits and depths, but no dice.

After a small lull in the rain I switched to drifting a spinner rig with a worm. I did pick up a nice sized channel cat and a 14.5 inch walleye like this. Then the wind kicked up to 25-30mph and the rain came back so I cut outta there. All in all it was a wet and unsuccessful day, but it bets the tar outta working!

      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
