Hey Frisky,

According to the radio report, you are suppose to be in a hut with two heaters burning right now...???? So are there any fish left in Muskeg?

Hitting the ice tomorrow for a 5 day stretch... Looking forward to it.

Well WT that was the plan, till I went out to start the wifes car for her this morning, stucked thermostat. On top of this my bud from Swift with whom I was to meet there had 2 dead vehicles this morning as well, so even had I made it there we would'nt have made it much further. We were gonna hit Zipple by noon....Oh well.

Yes there are still plenty of fish left in Muskeg. I had the portable set up by three in 16.5 fow. Got 1 big Perch and 1 little Perch by 4.Between 4 and 445 I caught 2 small Wally's, 1 17 inch Wally and another around 21-22. After this the Pout moved in and after 5 of these in about 25 minutes I gave up! So I got to keep 1 nice Perch and 1 nice eating sized Walleye, had them for lunch today.

I'm off to the in-laws in GFKS tomorrow, then Saturday I'll be here in Roseau with my folks. Sunday moving Walleyejons Big fish house onto the pond most likely.

I talked to some folks today that have plans to hit them rocks on Sunday. You gonna beat them to it are'nt you?

Green with envy!....fiskyknut

Yep, that's the plan anyway... It's going to be a brisk morning tomorrow, but the weather sounds like it will get better through the weekend.

Have a good one.

Offline till 12/29.

WT.

      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
