Given that the heaviest fish are the winners, does everyone just go for northern/walleye in these things? I've never fished a tourney.....

My brother and I were first timers at the EXTRAVAGANZA last weekend and had a blast, even without any fish. I'm thinking about coming out to Jane on Sunday for some fun. Anyone know where to find a bit more info about this tourney? Found some basics in a couple local papers (time, location, cost), but was wondering about additional rules (augers, #of lines/holes, pre-fishing, shelters, etc). Don't want to haul too much out there if I don't need it Thanks in advance.

They will drill holes for you. You can have one line per ticket max of 2. No pre fishing on sunday and you can have a shelter but you can not seat in it while the contest is going. There is a circle you have to fish in.

      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
