Attempted that this morning, with nothing to show for it. Good luck finding shiners, they are in very short supply everywhere due to some kind of kill off up north, and with the VHS thing, importing them is not an option for the baitshops. We only got one flag and missed it, we are going to try a different area tomorrow am.

Silver Creek, and Lake Zumbro are your options in this area. Silver Lake, and the zum river below also has a few. The backwaters of the Miss are another good option

I don't know if this will help you out or not, but if you drive down to Austin, MN; find Ramsey Dam and fish there. I pulled out a nice 25 inch nothern there last summer shortly before getting deployed. Take you there are also plent of Small Mouth Bass and panfish at the same spot, but my buddy does alot of local northern fishing there. If the fishing sucks there, you can always do some Walleye fishing in ALbert Lea.

      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
