BW trip - Good leeches?

6 posts in this topic

Hello all, going to be making a trip up to the BW off the end of the Sawbill. Heading in from the south, and I'm wondering which place is best to buy a good pile of leeches. The only concern is that we might not be up the shore until 8-9pm. If you can recommend anything in Duluth or just south (that doesn't take us too far out of the way), that would be wonderful.

Relying on local expertise here to put me on some good bait smile.gif

Thanks for any suggestions!

Mail sent Steve. I'll be heading up the 31st, looking for larges and jumbos, but I'd take a random mix if we were getting a pound.

There is always Fish Lake Bait at the Harris exit off of 35 just north of the North Branch exit.

They've always got plenty of the slimy devils, and you can just pack them into a cooler with some ice for the trip north. I fish the Boundary Waters near Ely, and have no problems keeping the leeches lively on the trip north - a cooler and some ice to put the oxy bag in and you are good to go.

Excellent! We might try and stop here to get a pile of them, then keep 'em on ice as suggested. Thanks for the input!
