I have been using a T-handle release since going from fingers to release The one I use now is made by Tru-ball spendy but very dependable. With the a T-handle your still using three fingers to draw with and you trigger with the thumb. The biggest advantage to me is being able to leave the release on the string( I use an Ultra nock on the string.) I did end up with an inch or so less draw length and a slightly lower anchor point.

i shot a winn free flight a few years ago. It was a nice shooting release, but It had a little more trigger travel than i would have liked. I also had a hard time finding a solid ancher with it. I gave it to a friend, and he loves it. he has been useing it for 3 years. If you can, find someone who has one and try it first. I think they also make 2 different heads, 1 you pull the trigger to release it, and the other you hold the trigger and release it when you want to fire, it would probly work good for the transition between fingers and release. hope this helps a little

I have had my Wynn release for 5 years now and no complaints other than when the deer is walking down the trail toward me at a good pace and I am fumbling trying to get the release to lock on my string loop. I know I could eliminate that problem by not having a string loop but I like the fact that I don't have to replace my string as often. They are great for people who want more draw length because the head is so short and I find it to be more consistent on the anchor point than other releases. It also allows me to pull back a few more pounds because it straps to your wrist and has a palm grip.

I use a light glove under it on cold days. I have a camo muff that attaches to my waist and I have a hand warmer inside it to keep my fingers warm.

I shot the free flight for quite a few years when I just stared out. I have since moved on, but it was a very good release. I now shoot a scott for hunting and a Carter for target.(I actually have about 5 different releases for target, a couple of back tension no trigger releases, but I tend to go back to the carter.

      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
