They do bite once in awhile just not very fast or consistent.

Todd: The Walleyes on LOTW just have a great UNION and quit at sundown... They go back to work at sunrise... LOL... Now the Pout have the night job and you can get them running around after hours.. Seriously, the water is to stained and even Old Marble Eyes can't see very well in that water after dark.. But the Pout aren't that bad, are they??? They smell their way around, or is it they just plain SMELL!! confused.gif Better off sleeping after dark and be ready for the HOT Sun Up Bite grin.gif!!! Kaz

Thanks for the help. We're bringing up some tip ups with bells in case the pout want to wake us up!

We have stayed in Bob's sleepers out of Warroad formerly Jakes. We bring rattle reels with and lay the lure real close to the bottom. Most likely you will catch pout but we have caught a few walleyes. We have actually caught a 26" fish in the dark.The pout can be a real blast to catch just do not put to many down or you will spend the whole night untangling from the pout.

Good luck and have fun.

Thanks for the posts. Speaking of eelpout tangle, I once was at the Eelpout Festival on Leech Lake, and had one heck of a morning eelpout tangle.

I am told the same thing every trip up there but I dont believe that for a minute. I have caught my biggest fish up there after dark. You wont catch as many as the daytime, but some of the biggest eyes have come at night. You just have to move shallower after dark. We fish deep during the day and move to the shallows just before primetime. I look at it this way, I am up there too fish and I cant catch them at the motel or bar...lol.

      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
