Bait

4 posts in this topic

I'm looking for four pounds of jumbo/large leaches for use on Rainy next week. I'm having a real hard time find nice leaches in the twin cities. I called the the Rainy lake one stop but they haven't called me back yet. I'm also looking at 1/2 flat of crawlers too. If I can't come up with some good bait the guys will drag me behind the houseboat all the way out past the narrows. Anyone have any suggestions??

Thanks Dave

Hey Dave,

4LBS of Leeches is planning for some serious success! Coupled with a 1/2 flat of crawlers. I like your way of thinking. I would guess the One stop will hook you up, but may want to give them another ring. I might also suggest some Shiners. Get yourself a bait tamer and sink it along the houseboat along the bottom where the cooler water is. Fishing has been good for some and poor for others. Typical I suppose. Good Luck Buddy!

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.
