Given he amount of holes I can drill this might be important sometime soon grin.gif Think some other people might want the answer too.

I'm not sure. I should be pretty simple to touch them up as you sharpen the back side and not the angled edge. I do know that Nils has an exchange program with a 5-7 day turn around. I believe the cost is about $12.

I picked up an additional cutting head so I wouldn't loose any time in case I hit something or had to send mine in for sharpening.

Mark,

Contact J.P. at Nilsmaster USA. I do the same thing that Borch does. I have an extra head and when I need one sharpened I put the new one on and send in the old one. One week turnaround smile.gif and as mentioned it's around $12.00

Did and sadly JP said the grinder is kaput and he won't be able to do the exchange until he gets a new one. He gave me all the info I need to touch the blades up and then talked me into a new centerpoint head. I like the idea of having a spare around just in case so it's all good.

      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

      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!
