West Leaf Lake

5 posts in this topic

I will be heading to West Leaf Lake in a few days and was wondering if anything was biting on West or any of the surrounding lakes?

was on rush this weekend for a sportsmans challenge. Lots of bass and northerns. Caught the biggest bass of the day, a healthy 19 incher in 5 FOW on a spinnerbait. Lots of decent bass, biggest northern went 27 or 28 inches, all fish on spinners or pulling cranks up to 15 FOW. piles of crappies were caught on the south end of the lake, straight out from the launch at oak point in front of the reeds. good luck.

ps, east leaf i believe is something only a top water can get through, from what i have been told

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
