4/29 Trout Repo

5 posts in this topic

With finals looming just around the corner, being only a week away, Sunday was the only day I knew I would be able to get out. I didn't get out any too early (college and early mornings don't go together on weekends). Left the apartment around 11:00 and made it to the stream a little before noon.

Started off catching one fish and having three more hit in the pool by the bridge. Not bad for the first time out, in the very first spot. Fishing slowed for awhile after that. Could have been due to the other footprints in the area. The farther I got upstream the less footprints there were and the better the fishing got.

Caught and released around 25 fish in a few hours. Many were in the 6-8" range. Managed to catch a few that went 10" and 12", one 13", and a very healthy 17".

      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
