I saw a bunch of geese in Belle Plaine last night late (7:15pmish). Sit on top of the Chevy dealership and whack um! smile.gif

There is a public slough in Green Isle. I talked to a couple of guys who hunted it opening day and they got 10..that was with letting all the teal go. They did mention that there were plenty of other hunting it but theat can be expected for opening day.

Also note that those two lakes in the GI area are WPA ...meaning "No motors allowed". Just make sure your aware of that. Gaylord has Lake Titloe too.

I would plan on it vs. waiting for something to happen. If you knock one down you're going to want to get on it right away. Assuming you have waders, stuff the boat in the cattails and stand next to it (of course, it isn't bright yellow or anything?).

If you are setting out decoys your best chance should be at decoying birds, hopefully dead in decoys. A quick wade and your back in the 'blind'.

When there, you need to stick your nose into the breast feathers and take a HUGE whif... you'll be hooked.

We took the jet boat out on the river tonight in henderson looking for ducks. We had them pinned down until the river went way up. Now we might get the waders out and jump some small ponds and cricks tomorrow.

      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
