Big crappies like the shallow water, a very overlooked area for ice fishing. Reading some of Matt Johnson's post about the shallow water bites has helped me a lot...All the big crappies I have gotten over the last year have been in shallow water, my house is in deep water now and I have been getting nothing over 11", will be moving back to shallow water this weekend.

Yeah i wouldnt have targeted crappies there probably, but a friends perm on green was mighty inviting with the cold air. thought we would only get northerns, but lots of crappies and bass! no northerns!

I was out for a few hours tonight on my slab goldmine and man, im getting worried that its going to winterkill. for weeks it was slab after slab, now its small ones and they are moving SLOW! the lake has a history of kills, but afterall thats why they are huge in the first place.

      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
