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!

      As far as I know every vechicle at every access has to pay a road fee .

      Was wondering what the ice conditions are after the rain on Monday?

      I use my 1660 Lund Pro-V Tiller for fishing Superior all of the time. I have 2' of track on both sides to hold my 4 aluminum rod holders and my triple trees. If you start using magnum dipsys with the ring they can pull hard enough to break most plastic rod holders. In the spring you are basically fishing the top 15' with plugs so any rod holder will do. Once you start trying to get to 40' and beyond is when you need to beef things up. I also have a mast and use the single big boards that Marine General sells for getting a good spread with you plugs. Once summer rolls around I will use Yellow Birds with 5 colors of lead on the outside  and dipsy's with 65lb Power Pro or steel depending on what depth I am trying to achieve to pull spoons or flies.

      I see that the Royal Dutchman website had a blurb a couple days (2/17) ago that said nothing was happening yet, they also don't know how thick the ice is.  As usual hoping for a long spring season before it closes for walleye.  On a positive note most of the snow must have already melted with the record warmth so maybe won't be so much to cause runoff later on?
