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

      Was on Skogman last night. Could not get anything of size to bite. 3 " sunnies and 6" crappies this time. The vex was lit up most of the time with lookers.  Last year did Ok with bigger crappies and sunnies. Middle of the week - not to much activity - nice weather- was hoping for better results. Oh well - that's fishing. Good Luck

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.
