Was gonna go to greys bay for some panfish action but sounds like everythings on the small side. Taking my girlfriend out and would like to get on some sunnies and then crappies towards dark. We're lookin to take home a small meal most likely. Any info on other bays to find decent pannies?

Sorry it took so long to answer. Try either Black Lake or Seton it is my home turf. You will see all the holes that people have drilled. On Seton for sunnies just try around the north end you will see all the permanments parked there. I have been using a ant bait with a waxworm no wheight and a pencil shy bit. they have stacked in the whiole water column. I am going out tonight after work. It is Friday look for a red Chevy and a little flip over thats me. I will be on Seton from about 2 PM and on. If anyone else is interested come out and join me grin.gif

If you go when you enter the lake look to the west you will see bunch of permanent houses there is a deep hole there I would try that area for crappies. One of my spots was to the left of that area you will see a channel that runs around the back of the floating bog. I usually drill holes in fron of that channel in about 13 fish for sunnies. really I would drive thru to Seton and try the sunnie fishing there. When it gets near dark maybe move back to Black. I will be out there Sunday we have to move our houses off thwe lake. So I should be there most of the day. If not on Black I might be over at Seton. I drive a red Silverado we will also have a four wheeler out pulling off the houses. i hope to see you out there.

Ill probably start on seton and then move out to black. Brought my girlfriend with me recently to chisago and she had a great time. Got her on some fat gills and some 9-11in crappies after dark. I think she caught the most out of 5 of us and caught the biggest crappie at 12inches

      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
