The other night, I think monday, the ice near the marina was about 7" or so. I've heard there is alot more now. I didnt do too well though.. Caught a small northern and small crappie. First time fishing the lake though.

Kylersk,

I was out there Monday night also, We had 20 crappies in 2 hours, I was one of the blue fishtraps out in Waconia Bay.

The permanent is going out sometime this weekend. I will shoot you an E-mail sometime next week.

Danny, what time were you out there? I was there from about 5 till 8pm in the green otter. Just south of the Perm house that was near the marina. I think I was too far east, since most of the other houses were to my west. What were you catching the crappies on?

Are you guys seeing ATVs out there? I've never fished Waconia. I'm going with a friend who says that it's a 1/2-mile walk to his spot. I'd rather take the wheeler.

KYLERSK,

5 to 7:15, minnows and glow jigs. We were out by the other permanents. We found a pocket in the weeds, in 11 feet of water.

There has been a lot of 4 wheeler traffic on the south side of the island, I don't know about the rest of the lake. I heard somebody was out there in a truck yesterday, but I didn't see them

      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
