I was up last month a few times. However, family commitments will keep away until later this summer. I will be thinking about it regularly.

Thanks,

Plastics. Rapalas. Wind swept points. Underwater structure.

I could have done some serious damage if there wasnt a steady 25 mph wind out there.

Yep, all the same day.

What works in Kansas probably works just the same here.

Fish points/logs/rock piles.

Hey Big,

Where abouts in Kansas are you from? I lived in Fontana, near LaCygne until we moved to Vermilion in 2000. I was a resort owner and guide there for eight years, now in Arkansas on Norfork Lake doing the same. Send me an e-mail and I can give you some info on Vermilion.

Go to photobucket.com and set up an account. It free. Upload your pictures to your account and once they are there, you will see 4 sets of things beneath your pictures. You have to copy/paste the image code into the text of your post here and presto....they will show up. (I think, I haven't uploaded any for a few months)

      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
