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.
