Versatile options

2 posts in this topic

The river is in the early summer stage right now. The water temperatures are warm and the water levels are low. This is also evident because they are hitting on crankbaits and livebait about half and half, over the last few years, I have grown to believe they want bait much more early in the season than anything else. We caught 18 legals on yesterday (5/19), including some saugers and on was 20 inches, which is a nice fish on the Croix north of Prescott. Including versatile options for presenting the baits, are a wide range of depths are from 8 to 28 feet. Personally I like the shallow stuff best.

Keep Catchin'

Hit the river again this morning and found the eyes to be on the shorter end and light bitters, caught a mix bag of drum and stripers and smallies, did manage to bring home 4 nice ones and a short sauger (floater) all fish came on crawlers 12-20 feet, had alot of short bites but I noticed when I feed them line and waited, usually hooked up. great morning to be on the water! NICE MEETING YOU TOM! cool.gif MY MARKER WAS IN THE RIGHT SPOT, HUH!! wink.gifwink.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
