drip bag spot

3 posts in this topic

I put out a bag in a abad spot, I think.. I couldn't find a spot I liked in a transition zone so i put it near a trail by some nice rubs and made a mock scrape. I that a terrible thing to do or do you think it will help?

Put it out on Sunday and I hope to hunt today or Thursday night.

Thanks for the input.

i had this problem when i first bought one months ago. you need to find a spot where the bucks travel and will visit every day or just about every day. i made mock scrapes and it really workd out well, i dont know how many different bucks came to my dripper with in the week. now i just bought another dripper and put one on a scrape that was made by one of the bucks in my area. i just put that one out a week and half ago and i had alot more action at that one. this buck dug a nice size hole in the ground right about the dripper. but you dont want to hunt around that dripper, you want to hunt about 60-70 yards away from the dripper but right on the trail the bucks are coming from. good luck with that!

Best thing to do with a mock scrape/dripper is to look at the natural scrapes in the area - typically the scrapes have an overhanging branch(actually always) and are on a fairly flat spot without a lot of rocks/roots. Let us know how it goes. Right NOW is the time to hunt those scrapes. early and late in the day.

      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
