Leeches in early fall

4 posts in this topic

We will be up Sept. 8-14. We usually come up in the spring,but will be trying the early fall bite also this year. We use leeches in the spring and buy them by the pound on the way up in the Superior / Duluth area. Will there be any trouble getting leeches this time of year?

It may be difficult to get leeches at that time. All bait has been difficult to get this year because of the warm dry weather. Give us a call or email me (my email is on the website) and I can let you know at least what our supply is, we normally have them later than most places because our supplier has holding tanks to keep the leeches later on.

Thanks Dave, we just checked with our usual bait shop and they where not sure if they would have any or not by then. We go through a pound per guy for the week. I will check with you prior to leaving for our trip.Thanks

      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
