10,000 rinks

3 posts in this topic

As we were down flooding last night, I got to thinking this might be a good thread--who here keeps a rink?

We keep a monster on White Bear. If you fish WB, and drive on the Matoska landing, you can see it about a half mile north along the shore. My neighbor has a four wheeler to plow, and a pump for flooding. No boards, box goals (true pond hockey, no goalies), this year he put up a flood by running the cord from shore in the ice to a 4 X $ frozen in the lake. We've kept it for about 6 or 7 years now.

If we could just fix those cracks.

What about your rink?

I had one growing up in SW Mpls. This was from the late 70's - mid 80's. My younger brothers carried on the tradition for another 10 years after that. The yard wasn't big and there was a tree & clothesline pole in the middle which always made things interesting. We spent many hours out there playing hockey or boot games. Working on the rink was fun too. Every year we'd change things a little bit trying to make it better. We built the nets with 2x4's & chickenwire. Then we'd put up boards, flood lights and maybe paint some lines in the ice. I'm sure we broke every window at the back of the house & a couple of the neighbors too but it was worth it!

      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!
