So you're saying it leaks out of the livewell, right? The livewell won't hold water? Or, the water leaks from the livewell into the boat?

If it's leaking out of the livewell you probably need to adjust and or replace the valve.

Either right behind the step up to the bow deck or right infront of the rear storage compartments. Remove the 4 screws in the coreners of that panel and take a look to see how the valves are working and if they need to be adjusted.

marine_man, I guess I should have been more specific but to answer your question, both. The livewell won't hold water very long and it seems to be leaking into the boat(bilge).

Ok...

I'm guessing since that's the case that the hose that runs from the bottom of your livewell back to the valve has a cut / tear in it. What I'd do to find out where the leak is is to pull the boat out of the water and run water in the livewell with a hose. If it leaks out of the livewell & you end up with water in the boat it almost has to be the hose from the drain to the valve. Try and get access to those locations as best as you can (it's a bear sometimes... you'll probably end up standing on your head) but you'll need to either figure out where the cut is or replace the hose between the livewell and the valve that controls that livewell.

It might be as easy as a loose hose clamp too, or a broken livewell valve (which could happen if there was water left in the valve & it froze, and it cracked in the right spot... so before you tear into replacing the hose check all the easy stuff first.

I'm guessing if you pull the panel you'll need to get into to access the valves you'll find the problem pretty quick.

    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
    • With our 60 day flyway limit it's hard to stretch it out. Opener in Northern MN is typically pretty slim on teal since they leave early and by close lots of our deep lakes are still open the past two years. IMO not that it matters, I'd rather see an earlier start with a larger gap.
