Has anyone noticed water problems with the increased snow load? Hoping to try Babbler's this weekend. Thanks

Did'nt get any water on the ice yesterday out that way where I was drilling the holes. May get kinda sloppy on the pond soon though!

Thanks Fisky. Could you get off the road a little with 4 wheel drive pickup?

If you drill right inside the Jetty at Arneson's you should stay dry.

Depends on the truck and the driver I'd reckon. Some were getting off the beaten path and Babbler had a few tracks cut to get off maintrack here and there. Snow has kinda firmed/compacted since last week but some drifts/areas are plenty deep enough for hanging up good if you drive into them!!!

Ripper....Looked like a Trackhoe working/dredging at Arnesons so your shallow evening spot out of the wind may be shut down? Maybe be able to get a small boat in there though!

Fisky, rocky point is dredging the passage way so the boats can get through. Last fall it was only 2 feet in depth through that channel. I spoke with Ed Arnesen at new years time and he told me that was going to get done.Now that is taking care of business in favor of the customer!Way to go Arnesens!!

I thought they were done with that last fall?? Apparently not though. Packer, you might have to go to the west end of the jetty then being they are working in there. They have really been biting by boat slip number 13!

If you need to use my sled, pick it up on the way thru!

      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
