Leech Report 12/29

1 post in this topic

Fished Leech 12/27 - 29. 12+ inches of snow on the ground, various depths on the lake. Some very slushy/deep parts in random places, use caution when moving around on a sled or wheeler. I saw several guys get stuck. Walker Bay ice from 8-11 inches. Didn't check Pine Point area depths, but cars and SUVs were on the plowed roads there. Many anglers between Grand Vu and Goose. While out and about, I noticed 2 small completely open holes about 2 feet across. One on Agency Bay, the other on the western half of the Walker Narrows. In fact, an otter or a beaver had his head out of the Narrows hole. Strange.

Fishing was decent 1st night in 28 FOW, Walker Bay breakline. Caught 5 eye keepers (2 of us). 2 were borderline small, but we wanted a meal. Many lookers on the flasher. Soft bites. Next night set up in the same spot and caught one nice perch (released) and 3 eyes. Lost a big fish, not certain what it was. Sounded like setting up near the City Dock break line was pretty productive from some folks I spoke to. Prime time was 4:30 - 6:30. Guys were pulling wheel houses out on Walker Bay with wheelers.

      Fished ALL day with Mike. Started out good with a couple doubles on pike but slowed way down. Ended up with three walleyes, eight pike and about 30 bass. Couldn't mark many today whereas on Saturday I marked lots of fish. All on soft plastics. Today's video link Mike can catch em without crawlers video

      Fished about 3 hours this afternoon. Had 7 bites and missed them all. Tried bigger hooks on the jig and hooked minnows through the mouth out the back of the head.  Good solid strikes too but no luck. I'll try lindys and some lighter jigs tomorrow to see if that helps

      My wife and I fished Friday and Saturday.  Friday we got out around noon, fished shallow rocks (15 to 22ft), mid-depth reef (15 to 28ft), and shallow sand flats (8 to 20ft).  Bite was slow to non-existent, wind was strong and fierce at 18 to 24mph.  Boat control was tough and we ended the day about 4pm.  Told my wife the sacrifice was not worth the excitement.   Saturday was a different story.  Calm with some sun.  Got out by 10am and started out fishing shore rocks (15 to 28ft) and picked up a couple.  Around noon moved to deeper reefs and bang we found fish, nice ones too.  We were trolling very slowly, i.e. 0.1 to 0.3 mph until we marked and caught fish.  Then we'd anchor up on them until the bite went away.  Ended the day 3 short of our walleye/sauger limit.   Talked with others indicating the bite on Thursday was very good, Friday was tough, and Saturday was a bit better.  We took the boat to the dealer for YE service, so we are done for the year. ...oh and got all three snowmobiles started too.  This was a first.
