Near watertown 10-31---11-02 very tough. Ducks are not sitting on public water. Few fields out so the # of fields to hunt are small. Tough to get permission. Should change in the next few days with more birds coming in and more crops getting harvested. More birds and crops out to the north.

Hunted near De Smet, which is about 40-50 south of watertown from Oct 19-28.

We did pretty well. Limited out field hunting mallards every day. Every farmer we ask said it was OK to hunt ducks, but we really expressed that we were duck hunting only.

Here's a satellite tracking program that the Arkansas DNR put a few mallards to study their flights. Kind of interesting. You can see where the mallards are daily and follow their flight tracking.

      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

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
