Recommended Posts

I was looking at an aqua view on leech this weekend and noticed these crater looking things on the bottom. Could it have been maybe eelpout burronwing a hole or looking for food?????

How big were the craters? Could you tell? I know perch will dig down and try to "fluff up" some goodies from the bottom to eat. I'm also interested to hear what others have to say.

Fish on!

Two years ago my son and I were fishing perch in Traders Bay on Leech Lake, I had the camera down and we were watching all the perch on the bottom, all of a sudden they began to scatter, the funny thing is we saw at 5-6 of them dive into the mud on the bottom and a northern came cruising in. The northern hit my little jig and bit it off right away and swam off. Pretty soon we see the mud stir up on the bottom and here come the perch that "buried" themselves in the mud. It was the goofiest thing I'd ever seen.

I do not know the answer for sure, but I have my own theory. I also SCUBA dive and see these "craters" on the bottom. I usually see them in bars or drop offs that make good fishing spots. My guess is that anchors have been dropped and made the craters. Since there is no current at 20 feet down to remove or fill in the divots, these craters will accumulate over a number of years. I could be wrong, but that is my best guess.

    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
