Work the outside edges of the weeds and look for quickly sloping drop off areas and associated humps, less weeds, larger fish.

They always seem to wreck my walleye fishing but I would be willing to do a bit of that maybe once the dog days roll around. FLsniper is itching to get out there too so maybe we could use the stealth pontoon and hit some of the better areas and or even cast for an eye or two at the same time.

"Stealth Pontoon"....sounds like my kind of rig.

I'm in!

My schedule will be a little more open when the "dog days" start rolling in.

Clam Up just purchased himself a muskie setup...so he's on the hunt now too.

Tunrevir...shoot me an email...or call when you head out there sometime...I'm great for jumping in on last minute plans even. I can always dump my boat (16' rebel) too.

      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
