A conservation officer escorted 2 people out the woods in the buffalo area on Sat. Baiting was the issue. If this is true, Thank you to however gave the TIP. Don't know if they were related to the Schmidt twins, but it was there property.

DNR was using aerial surveilance and GPS prior to the season...so it could have been something spotted from the air that tipped them off.

Way to go DNR! I am so sick and tired of the (Contact Us Please) that think they can bait deer and get away with it. I would like to see the penalties increase, more equipment taken, as well as thier priveleges removed for a couple of years. Baiting is flat out unethical and other hunters should be outraged at guys doing this.

I was biking a year ago on a bike trail and noticed red dots in the woods. I took a close look (yes, I tresspassed) and found a deer stand with apples tied with string all around the stand and a deer block.

I called TIP.

Does baiting make hunting more fun. To me hunting is thrilling because you don't bait and It's more difficult that way. If you want to shoot baited animals you should just as well go shoot cows in a fenced field eating at a corn trough. Of course I'm kidding to make a point. Besides you'd be the target for the Farmer if you we're doing that.

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks

      Well better you found it now and not this weekend or you would be SOL fore sure being the 4th.  Nothing wrong with a good old lake bath though!  Good Luck.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Use leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama.

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.
