Quick report from todays outing.

On the ice(which is at 5 ")from 12:30-4:30 today. We were the first ones out on the ice there because there was no others holes cut anywhere. We fished about 50 feet straight out from the point. We were in 13' of water and visibilty was at least three feet. The Vex showed almost everything at about 11-12 feet. We used waxies on Marmooska, spring bobbers with a tear drop and and Ice Buster bobbers with a Genz grub and waxies. Waxies all day long. Total fish--- 42 sunnies 2 crappies and 2 bass. Biggest fish of the day was a nine and quarter inch crappie. Three guys in a 4600 Clam, pretty crowded. Great to be back!!!

Hi all,

been away for awhile as have been trying to invite some venison "home for dinner". One more outing to IA for old-timey blackpowder hunt but cold snap has me interested in some hardwater solitude.

Dan, which pit are you fishing? nearest Mayo parking lot? If not, I remember CT talking about the 2nd pit being preferable to fish. So would appreciate knowing the best way in there. I have Mayo parking priveledges, so park at the lot and pull across the west end of the S. pit to the next pit? Is there areas to watch out for? (seem to remember CT mentioning springs somewhere)

Thanks in advance for the info

Hi Tom,

We came in from the north east corner. Come in from the bottom of seventh street. There is a poured rock ramp down there. Easy access. Man I think Mayo One must of took off and landed at least ten times today.

Stillhunter,

It's the pit farthest to the north. Although if you have Mayo parking priviledge you can still get out from there. Depending on where you come in at you should go along the edge of one across the south one. There is a feeder creek that dumps into it by that area.

Look for the finger or penninsula there can't miss it.

Thanks Dan,

Have always fished the south one, since was unsure if the other was legal. have had enough excitement to keep going back although it seems as if some of the fish were a bit stunted

      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
