What happened to the original pic? Is this the same fish? It looked much bigger with the first pic.

Ok what's the deal here. First there is a monster fish pictured.........that was removed and replaced with a smaller one.........now I see a cover story in an up north paper about it challenging the state record?

What gives?

That's better grin.gif

Let me just say that I read the article in the Timberjay and Jim, you really couldn't have made a bad decision here. I think it was win win. You release it and it's still out there for others (and a good bit of advertising for the Lake) You keep it, and even if it's shy of the record, you can put it on the wall and there will be plenty more to come along.

Don't beat yourself up about this.

beautiful fish!!! And to have released it when it is either a state record or even coming close had to be a tough decision! I do agree, though, that it's win-win. Either way, I don't see how anyone could hold that against you. Just once, I'd love to have to make that choice.

Congrats! grin.gif

I fished Johnson and where I usually catch Crappies I caught one walleye in 9 feet. That was my first and only time out so far. I have to take Kelly to Duluth today to X-mas shop frown.gif

      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

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
