Countdown

7 posts in this topic

Six weeks from this coming Saturday, and I'll be back on the Big V!! Really I'm not that excited.

Off to the new Cabelas (it opened last Friday) store in Hazelwood, Mo. after work today to look over some of the "I really need that" items.

The boat needs an after winter clean-up but no biggie there. It's been running on the Mississippi already this year. Had some minor tweaks made to the motor height to stop a splashing issue a few weeks ago. That also gave me a little more top end, and easier steering.

Won't be long now! We'll be on the west end at Life of Riley. 22 foot Crest fishing pontoon, with a 115hp Johnson 4 stroke on the back. If you see us on the water, stop and say hi!

I am assuming you are the one that did battle with the Everett Bay Boat ramp last year and ended up coming over and using our ramp to pull out. Am I correct??

Randy,

That's me! It was a mighty battle. One damaged prop, brand new too. That hurt. I know better now.

Thanks again for your hospitality!

You run a class operation. Tell your wife I said hello.

I'm sure that we'll be down your way on the trip. I have three newbies along, and I'm sure we'll spend some time looking at the lake. We'll probably stop by for gas and to say hi!

MTNet,

We'll be up on June 2 and will be headed back on June 9. Most likely will head your way at some point in time! Let's get together. Cell coverage on the west end is tough for me until I get on the lake.

      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
