Depends on how bad the musky bug gets by the end of the week. It's already got me tying bucktails at midnight so I may not make it onto the big lake but you never know. I may get antsy to get the skunk out of the boat and head out to put a little something in the cooler.

Lota Lota...

At this point we should be out Saturday morning. Maybe tonight too if the wind calms down.

This might not count exactly, but I'll be taking the family out of Silver Bay this weekend.

Mostly, we've been hitting the reefs North of Sand Island this summer and the eater sized lakers have been very cooperative. This will be my first MN water adventure of the year.

Looking at the weather report, doesn't look like the winds will calm down much until late Friday afternoon/evening. Saturday looks good.

Ya this wind isnt going to lay down for a good while. Really blowing now in the Barkers Island area. I may just have to go Crappie chasing up river instead. Lota we saw 2 nice Muskies up by 23 but dont take your boat up there if ya know whats good for it.

From what I hear Spirit Lake, Devils Elbow and down by the Wi. Entry have been ok for skis.

Planning on trying to get out sunday morning with Xplorer Junior onboard most likely. Since I've spent nearly all my summer free time up in Voyageurs, any general advice on where a guy should start? I'm planning on heading up and trying the lester to pumphouse run 80-140' with a couple rigger/flasher/meat rigs and then a couple dipsey/spoon or #ball/spoon rigs up higher. Sound like a gameplan for those that have been out recently??

And just for clarification, since X Jr. will be onboard, i should be able to run 4 lines, correct? He just turned 4, but can reel in a fish if i help hold the rod for him. He managed to catch a 25.25 walleye this summer so i thought he was ready for some bigger game smile.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!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!
