Walker\Longville Area

9 posts in this topic

I was just wondering if anybody on this awesome spearing site has any good spearing Ideas for the walker\longville area.I have access to a cabin up there and was looking for spearing spot. One lake on the map that looked good was ox yoke lake. But I'm not familiar with the area so any help would be grateful. Thanks

I was also thinking the same question. But its more for my now retired father who has a lake home on Leech. Can you spear on Leech or not. Any input would be great. No worries about us setting up on your spots or anything because IF we do go spearing it may only be one or two times this year in a portable.

thanks,

mr

Meat-Run you can spear leech lake. There are quite a few spots we have speared nice pike in. Just hit one of the bays and you should be alright!!

If you want some good action Ox Yoke and Webb can be pretty good. There are some monsters in Mule and Blackwater. The old baitshop by Mule used to have pictures of some giants that were taken on that lake. A couple muskies were taken too (angling). Not much for numbers but definitely some nice sizes.

You can't go wrong with many lakes up that way. They either have numbers or size on pike. It's just a really great place as far as the resource goes...clear and productive waters. Like no other in the state. You can find good walleye, bass, pike, or panfish lakes anywhere in that area.

Mule and Blackwater get the occasional muskie. It's believed to be transplants, cause they weren't stocked there. Blackwater has some Ciscos in it and both lakes have very abundant game fish populations, so I'm sure they could do well. There are lots of lakes around Longville that have historically had musky.

Spearing is open on both lakes. There is excellent clarity and some really good vegetation. If you're out for size and do decide to try Mule or Blackwater, on Mule I'd try the north end narrows or one of the steep transitions on the east or west shorelines. On Blackwater, there are some good reed patches to set up next to a 67 foot drop off. It is a STEEP dropoff. I would try there if I was a betting man.

Has anyone tried Pine lake? It is located about 2 miles south of Leech near Whipolt on Hwy 200. I've fish that lake every summer. It's very clear, good weeds and lots of pike. Wondering if anyone has tried it?

Tried spearing in Walker Bay this past weekend but the water was quite cloudy, although I still managed two fish. Did I just hit a bad spot or does walker bay get like that? Anyone have any suggestions on other areas of leech to try spearing?

Thanks

Joe

      Yes the Navonics phone app is as accurate as more expensive ones and you don't need to spend the extra $$ on another unit!  The app costs under $10!!

      Hopefully things will start to happen soon.  The next 15 days of overnight lows are starting to stay below freezing. Maybe a few test holes will have to happen for me next week!!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
