5 posts in this topic

I heard through the grape vine that there was a drug bust out on the lake in the past week or so, and that a big icecastle house and a couple trucks were confiscated, anyone else hear about this? or have any specific details?

If true that pretty sad, probably cooking meth or something dumb like that.

Sadly enough, this has gone on for years. Back in the mid-80's we (Sheriff's Dept.) cracked down on "party houses" on the metro lakes, including an operation on one of the major bodies in the area that netted 36 arrests in one evening. It involved several metro departments in order to monitor all the known entrances and egresses from the lake, our narc unit (with a van on the ice) and a bevy of patrol sleds. Even the Civil Air Patrol had some wings in the sky, since the drug and booze (for minors) were being transported/delivered occasionally by private planes landing on the lake. Didn't happen this particular evening, but the narc guys monitored and ID'ed the party houses and between the deps on sleds and a handful of unmarks from the local municipalities, simultaneous "knock & enters" brought the activity to a halt.

If this is going on out at Pearl, I'm tickled someone is being proactive; we don't need these nutjobs jeapodizing our families (and property). And they ultimately do.

That's great news. I was on jury duty in Stearns Co. last week and a quasi-illegal was convicted of selling meth to a stoolie in Melrose. Funny that the stoolie clammed up when it was his turn to testify. We later found out that the pusher had made a plea agreement but it was overturned and he had to go on trial. Guess that's why he didn't seem too surprised by the verdict although it was a pretty clearcut case.

      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
