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.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      You may be right about it being a Silverside! Cliff

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
