How deep.........

4 posts in this topic

I was just wondering how deep everyone is fishing.We have been in 18'for the last 3-4 weekends.We moved the house this week to 27'.Just wondering what depths seem too be producing active fish. Anyone and everyone lets hear how deep everyone is and how you're doing. Oh and by the way in 18' we caught 1 10" walter, and about 3 dozen 5 in. perch, using everything u can think of, even had a buddy up there 2 weeks ago that made his own strucure on a string out of raw materials from a lawn and gardening store(looked pretty good too) and that didn't bring us any thing besides alot of those small perch. Anyones response is appreciated

i've always been told 90% of the fish are in 10% of the water on a lake. Find the 10% and you should be good. Sorry I wasn't more help but when the bites tough around the whole lake you really need to be mobile and find the fish.

      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
