glenn57 you defiantly need the Icesaw. For first ice it’s a safety tool. When walking out on the first ice or any questionable ice you have it out in front of you approximately 5’ to 6’ chipping as you walk. If the point goes through in 1 good chip you better start backtracking being the ice isn’t safe. Also it’s a lot cheaper to operate being there isn’t any gas to mess with and environmentally friendly. You can have it in your locked vehicle to prevent it from being stolen! It’s a lot safer to operate also and you don’t get all wet. It always starts and it’s so easy to use that BOSS can even use it. The Icesaw also makes nice smooth edges on the hole. You can either make a spearing hole or an angling hole! Enough said for now about the NUMBER 1 Icesaw made and I hope you don’t have to get on your knees and beg \:o to get one. \:\(

In 12” or less ice you can chip through with the Icesaw pretty easy. After the ice gets thicker the ice chips start to pack in the hole and have to be cleaned out to continue chipping. When the ice is thicker the people auger the corners out and cut between the holes. The Icesaw has its place in your arsenal for ice fishing.

      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
