I agree completely now if I could only get your brother in law to give me up to date reports on Mille lacs.

he gives out the info all the time, but having the hot line to him helps

he did say last night that the pond has been very slow this winter (perch is about the only thing biting), but travel out there is at best s*cks. If you don't use a paid road, then you need a snowmobile to get around. 4-wheelers get stuck a lot and a truck isn't even worth driving it out there

Rainy river near where it enters lake of the woods. There is an early walleye season around three weeks before the regular opener. You might have to push the boat across some ice since the edges of the river may be still frozen. Everyone we saw was doing very well. The one thing to watch for is the water clarity. The bite slows down a lot when the water's murky. It's something to check on before you go.

With out a doubt it would have to be low. Hands down it has been the most consistant fishery throughout the years. We have had a few bad outings, but most of the years weve done well.

The Rainy is a major fun spot to hit early spring when the ice is open down the middle till the Fork rivers open up then it gets muddy, fish stop. Keep an eye on the Rainy river forum for tips when it starts then get up there and have some fun. Just done plan on bringing a big boat. something you can shore ice. Nice Eyes taken all the time and even a suprize Sturgeon sparks up the furry. Can't wait.

      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
