ok. those of you that know me know that i live for the hard water season. so it is very hard for me to post this. i do believe it may just be time to put OPEN WATER back to the top. like i said it pains me to say so but this way i can start to count the days before ice fishing gets its place back there next fall. the boat is almost ready to be parked in the garage. so dad can get it ready for the summer. and the hobie cat is showing its gleem waiting to see some spring and summer winds. and on that note how about a sailing forum here in Hso. we have forums for many other things outdoor related. well sailing involves outdoors and water. i would even be interested in moderating this forum i am not by any means an expert. but i just thought id toss that in for a response. ... paul

I have been wondering when this would surface. I have been keeping track each time I log in and so far Ice Fishing always has more visitors than open water. I thought that was the determining factor? I guess when ya get right down to it, the weather speaks more to open water than the great grand glorious hardwater fishing. frown.gifmad.gif Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Wednesday, March 28, 2007 15:35 CDT. It is with heavy heart that I must report 32 people on the open water forum and only 30 on the Ice Fishing forum. mad.gif Alas, I guess that time has come! Oh well, think of the swimsuits we will be seeing soon! See there is one good thing about summer! No, that is not sexist either as I know that the ladies like to check out the swimsuits as well. grin.gif Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

nytelyter, just rig up some pontoons under your house and get some anchors. Then you could just fire up the auger and spin it around a few times just for fun. Make sure you have your 07-08 shelter liscence so you so the CO's don't give you a ticket! grin.gif

Bring on the soft water!!!!

      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!
