Should be a fill and level plugs on side or top of unit or resivor. What kind of unit do you have? Does it move at all?

92 Mariner The drain plug did break the small end in pump. Is that why it wont go up and down but make noise. It worked when I put it away. Very new to this.

Can you see any leakage? The noise you hear is most likely to be caused by "air" in system. You need to get air out of there. Fill reservoir with proper type of fluid. If their is a bleeding process posted on unit follow this. I know some only require filling reservoir and running unit up and down until full travel is achieved. Good Luck.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
