Boy Bay - Leech Lake

4 posts in this topic

Many years ago I used to fish Boy Bay and catch nice crappies and sunnies, but haven't fished there for about 15 years. The resort in the area used to plow a road out about a mile or so where the fish were. But they sold it and the new owners didn't plow out that far.

So, I'd like to head back there and give it a go and was wondering if anyone has fished Boy Bay lately and if the big panfish were still around. Also is there a plowed road out a mile or so and how are the snow conditions on the lake?

Snow has settled and with the -20 of this evening, it should be pretty crusty. There is truck traffic on most parts of the lake.

I have not been in the Boy bay area so I can't help you there.

I was near there last weekend and there are no houses out on the north end of Bear Island. We tried a few spots for perch on our sleds and got none. There is a plowed road from Pikedale Resort going to some cabins on Bear Island and it looked like some vehicle tracks came from the Pointview access. Snow was not deep but crusty. You could drive about anywhere.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
