Winsted

3 posts in this topic

Speared this morning/afternoon on Winsted. Saw one bullhead. Ice was about 4-5 inches thick. About 8 or so houses all by the access. I walked all the way across to the point/sandbar. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless they like to walk. There is a huge section running across the middle of the lake where a bunch of huge ice chunks froze together. Kind of scary crossing, I went close to shore because I was kinda scared that it might not all be of equal thickness. No one else saw much either. Water clarity wasn't terrible, wasn't as clear as it has been. Dang mice chewed up the tent pretty good this past summer. Anyone got any patching advice? Bad karma also in that I broke the pull start rope on my ice auger. Good luck to anyone else that spears. I'd like to see a forum but I'll keep you posted in January when I hit it hardcore. I have a whole list of lakes from the Hutch DNR with good pike numbers...now if I can find the good clarity to match.

i had a canvas that was a mouse palace. If it's heavy canvas, get enough canvas scraps to make patches and glue them on with "Tarp Mender." I think that's what it's called. Get in a warm garage and just glue those patches on and let them dry real good, and you'll be fine. I never had any trouble with the glue holding, and it's seals like a caulk too.

I have have found that 3M weather strip adhesive will work for glueing the patches on to.

      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
