Fished two different lakes. Caught nothing on Lake #1 and three walleyes and a pike on the second lake. Dragging minnows on a jig seemed to work, although I saw others using crawlers and leeches with luck too. Fished the windy side but I think that's changing tomorrow with a south wind. Should have had my limit with a couple on and then off and a broken line on another. The ones that got off felt like nice fish too....but aren't the ones that get off always nice? wink.gif

It was fun to finally put the new boat to work instead of just putting around. Lots to learn about it yet.

Didn't see any issues at the ramps and everyone was pretty friendly on the water. Must have been because the fish were cooperating and everyone is out again.

Nice work guys! Sure was a nice day to be on the water, although we had lightening and some heavy downpours where I was at. We found the 'eyes shortly before we saw lightening, but after the weather moved out, the fish slid deeper and were less agressive. Caught 4 'eyes from 15" - 17.5" and a couple snakes and sheepies to boot. Missed a couple 'eyes too, as is to be expected. tongue.gif

Thank goodness the season is here! laugh.gif

      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
