Exit on Hardman Ave, and go west. The road right in front of The Sportsmans Guide is the one you want to turn on, it says "Dead End". There used to be a "Water Access" sign on the corner, but no longe. If you go over the RR tracks you have gone to far. The distance from exit ramp to the turn off of Hardman Ave turn off is about 1/4 mile. See you out there, I will be in a Lund 1800 Explorer SS/Yamaha F150.

Joe, I think the Hardman ave exit might be closed right now? I would exit right at Fury dodge, go down the ramp and take a left. Then you come up to a light and take right on Villaume by the bestwestern. You go through two stop signs and take a left on Hardman then go to the dead sign like Joe mentions. I just came back from fishing tonight and caught a few fish. They preferred chartruese ringworms. Caught 2 white bass, a 20, 22 and a 23 inch walleye. I lost another nice one under the boat, guessing 25ish, and another broke my line that hit after dark on top of a wingie. Some moon light would have been nice, but the darn clouds blocked it.

      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
