Hey -- you guys get out yet? Have not heard much out of you fellers (been listening to Larry the Cable Guy too much).

What is the scoop?

Haven't been out yet....some of us have to work grin.gif

I have taken all of next week off so I will have 11 days off starting tonight at about 5:00 wooooohoooooo.

Hope to get out and hit the ice, might go down and check out the ice/slush situation tomorrow morning. And may try and hit either Leif or Little D next week with the youngens to try and get them on some fast and furious gills. Incidentally, has anybody been on Leif yet? How is the ice??

See you out there Hitman, bring some beer... grin.gif

I talked to a guy last weekend that said he was driving out on Leif. He said there was 12 inches of ice out there and that was last week. He was driving a heavy duty Ford so if you have something smaller than that I would think you should be fine.

Thanks for the info huntnfish, I'd probably take the wheeler anyway. Guess I'm getting chicken in my old age.

I know I still wouldn't drive out there with all the snow and inconsistent ice. The water is way too cold to be going for a swim this time of year.

Lida has about 12 inches of ice... people have been driving on it for about two weeks.

      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
