Well, by the sounds of it, at least you made the rounds and got to experience different lakes and locations. Too bad you couldn't hit one day, one lake, that highlighted the weekend. I just wish I could have an open weekend to get up to the cabin and fish. Cut Foot crappies will start to bite better and Bowstring crappies will always be a hit or miss option. Jumbo sunnies on my lake will pick up too. The way things are lookin', I'll finally get back up in the area the weekends of 3/10 and 3/17.

Been kinda quite on this forum....hoping someone is having fun somewhere, someplace.

I caught about 50 fish (mostly small perch) in the high banks area on winnie. I kept 2 walleyes and half a dozen nice perch...would've been able to cover more ground if it wasn't so windy out

When does the ice fishing come to an end up there? And when usually is total ice out?

Glenn, it's called Lake Paglaroni. grin.gifgrin.gif

Depending on weather, I am planning on hitting URL for crapps during the better weekend day....it's only 1 hour 15 minutes from my place. Otherwise, I'll be at my usual haunts in the area both weekends. I'll let you know for sure later...perhaps we can cross paths.

As far as ice out in the area, end-April is the average. Depends on the amount of rain and amount of wind. I still ice fish right up until I can no longer get on the ice safely from shore. Can't tell you the times I've been out fishing when it's an easy hop to get on the ice in the AM, and then find a 12' area of open water from shore in the PM.....I have found that I cannot walk on water. grin.gif

So I should be good through the month of march then? I'll be sure to bring my rubber raft.

      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
