Check out wilderness warmth out of cove. Great roads to get you out a ways, wheel houses can be pulled out with vehicles. Talk to jay,amber or Brandon for some advice.

People driving out of appledorns. Spent the night out there, alot a trucks on ice. I was about two miles straight out of appledorns sunset bay resort. Nice roads and about 12" of ice. Lot of 1/2 ton trucks where I was fishing. Plows were going further out when I left. As always check with resorts before you go out with vechile.

Are they driving out of garrison sports yet? I want to get the house out next weekend but I saw how close to shore the pressure ridge is this year and want to wait until they get the bridge out. How much ice is out of garrison right now?

Would double check on Wilderness Warmth and Cove. Jay said ice was NOT good with flooding as of a few days ago. They are not pulling yet. A guy died off the point last year (maybe year before) so double check. Jay does keep up nice roads on the weekends but they often are not plowed during the week.

judging from last weekend, there is a chance in you know what that you'll be driving out of garrison sports. I went out of there last weekend and it's pretty crappy ice. the ice is actually o.k. but it's all slush on top. I went with the wheeler and couldn't get any farther than garrison reef.

Drove off of Wilderness Warmth last Thursday. They were pulling all the big houses out and plowing roads all day. I'm not sure how far out we went, but it was at least 1 mile.

      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
