I was excited as well until I read article.

Looks like next year we will feel the pinch.

Anybody have any more details on why the low survey numbers??

We didn't do THAT good this year.

a friend of mine's father has a house on the north shore and he told me that the fish were just thick floating up there this summer. He said it was way worse than other years as far as what they had to pick up.

Lotsa dead fish from heat or CPR or what ever....

Judging by the lower catch rates this fall, i'm starting to believe the net surveys frown.gif

I hope the perch numbers are still good. I really don't care what I keep or throw back, I am there for the fun that is Mille Lacs in the winter.

The question is how a "boost" for local business this winter going to affect those same business' next spring and summer? I know a lot of them are hurting up there right now.

      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
