Looking for good spots 1st time on leech lake

4 posts in this topic

Hello all, a couple of my friends have never fished before so i thought i would take them out somewhere up north to try some big game fish, We are staying at moonlight bay and i was wondering if you people on the forum would be nice enough to direct me in the right area, some of the better fishing supplies we might need and some hot spots. we plan to fish for walleye, bass, and panfish, any advise would be wonderful, thanks again,

my email is c12t2001@yahoo.com.

I fished leech for the first time (ever) in Boy Bay over a week ago, since the general consensus was that it is the best spot for bass. I went out and fished a good chunk of the day there and did fairly well for my first time out on the lake. I found my own good spots for future ref. There is alot more Pike than I thought, so if you throw buzzers and spinner baits, you should probably use a leader.

If memory serves moonlight bay is in steamboat bay, which is very good for bass. During the day cast into the rice beds and weeds in and around minnesota island. Stop by Reeds and they will show you the tackle that works on large mouths.In the evenings and very early mornings go to Sand Point and troll for walleyes. Lindy rigs or spinners and shad raps work for trolling or if you like to anchor, a jig and bobber will wok with live bait. As far as panfish is concerned there is an abundance of sunnies in and around steamboat bay but are a hit and miss deal, but fun when you happen to run into them. Don't forget about the nice jumbo perch in leech, pretty tough to beat a meal of perch. Have fun and stay safe.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!
