Nobody out there to give you a report....even on weekends only a couple groups and they may not be on this Forum...I've been out to similar sized lakes in same area...last Sunday drove out in my SUV 18" of good ice but with this rain we had last night and still today they are a messy....I'll probably be walking out tomorrow...if I go.

 

I have been surprised with the lack of guys out chasing crappies...I've done better since end of Feb up till now than I did the entire season before that point...and best is yet to come IMO.

Bison was out there two days ago had a good 15-18 inches. Access was heaved as it normally is this time of year. I took my wheeler and trailer and got over it with no problem.

I'm also really surprised about the lack of fishermen out there chasing panfish.  Not sure why but there's been barely anyone out even when I drive around looking at lakes.  Maybe the really warm spell a few weeks back scared a lot of people away??

      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
