I just had a chance to check out the list of seminars at Pheasant Fest. It's in St. Paul Jan 18-20. Really impressive list of speakers. The stuff about improving habitat - like 20 different sessions. Wow.

I went last year but didn't sit in on any of the seminars. I'm going to try and make a few this year. I did get a chance to speak with Larry Brown outside of the show. I bought a used side by side at a Scheels in Des moines. I was filling out the paperwork and he walked uo and said he used to own it. We talked for an hour or so about birds, dogs, training, etc. He gives a talk about hunting other upland birds that I was thinking about sitting in on.

I would recommend the below seminar. Obviously what comes out of the new farm bill will be the nations backbone in set aside acres.

Pheasants Forever's (PF) second-ever Farm Bill Forum will take place at National Pheasant Fest 2008. At 10:30 AM on Saturday, January 19th, U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Tom Harkin (D-IA), U.S. House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson (D-MN), and U.S. Acting Agriculture Secretary Chuck Conner will participate in a panel discussion about the 2007 Federal Farm Bill. The Farm Bill Forum, presented by the law firm Gray Plant Mooty, will be held in seminar rooms 10 & 11 on the upper ballroom level of Saint Paul’s RiverCentre, the site of National Pheasant Fest 2008 presented by Cabela's.

I guess that I'm full with the politics. I'm more interested in all the sessions they have about improving habitat. You couldn't buy the amount of expertise that's going to be there, and the knowledge that they're going to share is worth it's weight in gold. How much time and money gets spent every year on planting the wrong seed, or putting in a tree package but not knowing what you're doing.

I guess some of the dog seminars are going to be worth the time. I am amazed at some of the stuff I read in the dog pages forum.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      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
