Just left the lake and did ok. Fished out of Hillmans and tried at 8 miles out, then 5 miles out and finally 3.5 miles. Caught about 25 walleyes and 2 perch. 2 northerns 1-33" 1 28 1/2" No crappies. BJ from Hillmans helped us out and put us on some bigger walleyes at 3.5 miles out. Thank you to him for the help and hospitality for checking on us. We brought our own shack and he still wanted to make sure we were doing good. Definately went out of his way to make sure we were happy. Kelly P thank you for coming to check on us immediately when we were spinning our tires trying to move the house. Everyone was great. Thanks agian for working so hard to keep everyone happy on the lake and keeping the road in great shape

I was also up Thur - Sat and tried the same spot out of Hillmans - 8 miles out. Has some luck Thur night, but caught 1 walleye on Fri. afternoon - not even a bite at night. Was going to move, but elec. auger broke. Going back up on Tues.

Wondering how other people did over the past weekend. Any reports would be great. Thanks

Doug -

I'm gonna try out of Hillmans, taking the "Crappie Hwy" to the NW. People I have talked to are doing better out that way. I guess start there and see what happens.

Just got back. 3 of us started at the end of Hillmans road off to the right about 100 yards. Set up around 3 pm. Caught about 5 last one caught on rattle reel about 9am. Marked plenty of fish but would not bite anything from buckshots to plain hook to glow demons. Tried everything in my box. So we picked up and went to "crappie highway" The first road at 5.2 miles we took. Went down it a mile or so and set up around 3pm saturdayafteroon. Fished from 3 till 10am sunday without a single bite. Marked about 3 fish all night and we fished till 4am and put rattle reels out till 10. Going back in 2 weeks, hopefully it picks up a little. Still had a blast tho. What nice weather this weekend too!!

      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
