How are you coming on the damage to the cabin? HOpe it wasn't to serious and you're getting it done before the snow flies.

I'm shutting down the water etc, pulling the dock and lift this weekend. Sure not looking forward to it but I guess there's not much I can do to slow down mother nature. Two weeks from now I will be in SD so maybe that will take my mine off of it for awhile. With the leaves pretty much gone I can almost see into your kitchen window from my dock LOL.. grin.gif.Have a good fall, perhaps see you there on the hard water. Bill

I was there last weekend and saw the damage first hand, not too major. I have someone lined up to fix the roof but they hadn't got to it yet, it was pretty rainy last week, hopefully it will be done soon. Three out of four panes of glass were broke out on one window, took them out and brought them to Mora for glass replacement, will be ready by this weekend. I put a piece of plywood over the window for now. The roof shouldn't cost more than a couple hundred bucks and the glass should be under a hundred, so no insurance claim will be needed. Cut up a few downed trees.

So things should be back to normal soon.

I'll be up Sunday to take the dock and pontoon out, my fishing boat and lift are already out. The following weekend I'll be shutting the water system down. I have a busy schedule this fall so I need to get things done when I can, a little earlier this year than normal.

Ice fishing will be here soon, maybe I'll try over your way this winter (early before the "village" appears). Dave

Sounds good. I hope to be up before the ice is thick enough to support full size vehicles and big wheel houses. The fish we've been catching that way have been awfully small, occassional decent size, but mainly 6-8". Released 3 others 21", 22" and 23" last weekend.

Glad to hear no major damage to the cabin. Hope to see you on the hard stuff. Bill

      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
