I haven't been up that way but talked to a friend of mine that did get a few crappies in 30 fow.

I believe there are new regs. on the lake.( 5 crappies and 10 sunfish)

I am not positive on this, you mite want to check it out for sure.

thanks guys for the report on the regs and the snow they were both to be very true, just got back on monday fished really hard drilled probaly 200 holes looking for them dang sunfish, no luck! we did end up finding some jumbo perch on Itasca 15 inch pigs, did'nt keep any either, I could of probaly caught my limit but I had sunfish on the brain. I decided to try another lake in the area and ended up catching about 40 nice crappies 38 fow 5 off the bottem, these fish were so agrressive they would come up 3 feet as it was falling on the drop, It was a fun night kept 5 11-12 inchers. And as for the weather all I can say is AMAZING.

Probaly gonna plan a trip for March gonna the gills another shot.

If you guys want to email me any info on travel conditions on the lake or any ideas on where there them suckers are my email is justindreher@aol.com, thanks again guys, justin.

Hey just wondering about a few lakes down that way as I grew up just a little north of alice but shoot me an email essig 149 at hotmail dot com. I can probably give you a few lakes I know of for some gills also.

      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

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
