Thanks Jonnyp for a great time fishing. First night we did awesome with some big crappies, awesome walleyes and couple perch. Next day started out good but dwindled from there with only couple of crappies and 3 walleyes and 1 northern. I think the best fishing was when it was -50 degree windchill. We spotted alot of fish and they hammered the bait but as the weather started to warm up the fish were not around. Warming up I mean to - 5 below. The best baits were the big demons glow and Merts Big Cecil in red glow all of them teased with a full minnow. The minnow head thing didn't work for us. I will say the red line with a floru leader did work great for us. I think there's alot fish down there, its just that they're "bullheaded" right now. Anyway thanks to Jonnyp and Kelly and Jim for all the insight on Red Lake fishing. We really enjoyed talking to you guys and hope to see you again.

It worked Ok but not as well as the new Marcum. Marcum was much clearer.

      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
