Leek/Trowbridge is a great lake for pan fish. They have a nice crappie population -- should be a fun trip. There is a mid-lake hole on the leek side -- should have a bunch of houses there -- that is where I would start. I do not know anything about current action or ice on that lake, but I'll bet F-Dog knows about Detroit.

Have fun and let us know how it was.

There has been vehicle traffic on the south end, but as for the bite, it's been slow. Always wanted to try that Leek lake, but there's just so many lakes to try :o. I'll have to give it a try some time.

Leek --

never tried in in the winter -- i know I should. My cousin has -- had a good time.

Great crappies,. at time, in the summer.

Not monsters, but eaters.

Duff --

I front of the resort, eh? That is/was a very good walleye spot -- that is where I caught them quite a few years back. Surprised you didn't find any crappies.

Thanks for the report.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
