I haven't been brave enough yet.

However, I was surprised to see a small house out in the middle just to the east of Big Island. I have been finding 4-7" of solid ice in and around the Excelsior Bay area.

I was out on the reef tonight ...didn't catch anything but a few perch. You gotta really watch the ice out there! North of the reef I drilled a hole in 35FOW and hit a spot with only 4-inches of ice. Really surpised me..so I backed down south to the reef where there was 8-10" inches of ice. Then again south of the reef in 25FOW I hit another spot with only 4-inches of ice. Ice on the actual on the reef apears to be much thicker 8"-10". If you are going out to the reef...watch it! Coming out from DeepHaven there are some spots on the ice that are definitely thinner than others and some really slushy spots too.

      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

      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!
