Bring crawlers and lots fo them. Fish shallow and on the breaks and you will find them...Fish SLOW and light gear.

If I were you I would pack

1/8 1/4 3/8 oz lindy sinkers so your ready for most depths

small swivles

clear green/red/yellow/glow beads

Red Hooks

Worm Blower Upper

Make your own lindy's 4-8 feet in length with one or two beads in front of your lindy rig hooks. I always run 2 hooks for crawlers on that lake. Use the worm Blower Upper to have the crawler float up above the weeds. Fish the edges of weeds and get your rears up early. Usually we are on the water before sunrise and off by 10 am. Start off on points or rock piles. Or start on the island. Not a hard lake to fish but just gotta find a spot and try it. Some guys pull cranks on flats at low light and do good. Tried it once out deep with down riggers and got 3 in an hour then nothing :S Some guys jig with fat heads and do ok. Never fished minnows up there.

Fellas, I'll likely be out on White Earth during that timeframe. Be sure to stop by and say howdy. I'll be in a black and red Skeeter with a 150 Yammy on the back.

My wife's family rents a bunch of the new horizon cottages every year over the 4th. They've been doing it for years. We'll be up there this year again. Thought you might be one of the rellys.

Don't worry about me catching too many walleyes on White Earth- that's one lake that really has my number. Despite all the great reports on the lake here, I consistently struggle out there. There's tons of area lakes I consistently catch walleyes on, but White Earth is NOT one of them.

Anyone hear how the tourney went out there this past weekend? Plenty of boats around on Sat. Any idea of how the winning team was fishing?

I heard the winning weight was something like 6 fish for 11 pounds and most people had a tough time out there, but that is all second hand info. Scoot were you out there on Saturday? I thought I saw a boat that matched the description you gave fishing by the island.

Yep, I was out there. I was by the island towards sundown on Sat night. Did you pull in there later in the evening with another fella?

Yep, I was there with two other people and fished more on the SE side. We weren't there long, just long enough to go down that side once.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      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
