Use the launch on the NW side of the lake.

Why that one as opposed to others?

Deeper, you won't have to swamp your truck to launch. smile.gif

North side is a DNR access. East access is a City of Buffalo access and it is way too shallow right now. The County access on the south side is an unknown for me, since I live on the north side - someone else want to comment.

The south one is earthen I think. It is by the channel to either mink or deer(can't keep them straight) which ever one is the most eastern.

I don't mind the city park launch as long as its not to shallow.

The DNR launch you have to drive across the street to park.

I always liked the southeast launch 'cause if there's room, and you don't mind getting yer legs wet, you can launch on the beach and then pull yer rig forward a touch and there it is when you get back; no "holding pattern". I didn't like the city launch, 'cause that was often the amateur hour, or nasty-yelling-at-yer-neighbors ramp. The northwest ramp is a good one, but there is the issue of parking across the hwy and schlepping yer stuff across.

The east ramp is ok, ONLY, if you have a small boat. Or you need to wash out the floor matts in your truck. If guys think walking across the street is a far? Check out the ramp off kings road going to minnetonka. Its only 200 yards parking lot to ramp, with a steep hill. The northwest access is the best on Buffalo lake. The south ramp does have a concrete slab but some people like playing in the water.

I prefer to float the boat, walk on a dry dock, step into my boat to launch. When I load up its drive boat on trailor. Step from boat to dock, then get into my truck and pull out then drain boat and finish tying down.

      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
