Pro-V lLive Well Question?

Question

1tofish

I'm posting this for my friend who needs some trouble shooting help with a live well on his Pro-V.

He has a 2006 18ft. Tiller. On occasion the front live well fills with water when he is moving. He has the lever in the closed position and does not have the live well on.

We are guessing the valve is still open to some degree. Is there any adustments that he can make?

Thank you for any and all suggestions!

Down Deep

The pickup and the pumps are in the rear of the boat, so I would doubt that you could pick up water when boat is in forward motion. Is the plug in the hole at the bottom of the live well?

I agree with Down Deep. Check to see if the plug is in and in tightly.

My 2001 Lund Mr. Pike does the same thing. (Front live well fills with a few inches of water. Rear live well is dry.) In my case, I'm sure it's the plug leaking.

Not a big problem for me because I'm probably going to fill the live well with water anyway and usually run long distances.

He may want to get a new plug. They can lose flexibility and get hard with age. Worth a try.

      Jerkin, you are absolutely onto something. Back when I used to put a permanent out in the south metro, I made sure to fish as many weekdays as possible. Weekends were always worthless, no matter the conditions. Luckily vermilion is big enough to get away from it all!

      Clifford, how is the slush out there? I have slush in front of my home and looking at sled tracks they are turning color also.

      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.

      1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.” Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge

      Moved house on Friday night in the dark.  Got holes drilled and let aired out.  Came back out after supper to fish for crappies.  Only small ones but had some action.  Got up early on Saturday and tried chasing tuilibee's and struck out.  Graphed a few but not a bite.  Switched back to the house around 8:30/9.  Buddies were near the house and had one crappie in the bucket.  Five of us fished till 11:30 without a crappie being bigger than 9".  Went back out after lunch fished till supper and nothing.  Came out again after supper got a 14" and 12.5" in 5 minutes and not a fish after that.  Sunday fished from 7 am till 11 nothing bigger than a 8" crappie.  Fished 3 hours Friday, 12 hours Saturday, 4.5 hours Sunday with only 2 crappies over 10".  Pretty sad but heard a ton of poor reports all over the area.

      Fished long point sat/sun morning... It was bad.  Had some friends fishing out of Borderview it was slow over there as well.  Tried all the colors.  Not very aggressive on the ones we did catch.  Had heard fishing was good of course on the days before sat.

      I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.
