Where to go???

5 posts in this topic

I can't decide where to go tomorrow. Can you help me??? I caught some nice perch 2 weeks ago on the deep rocks, but I think 2 weeks is a long time for a spot to hold fish and being I didn't have the GPS with I won't be able to find it again anyway. Where would you go..... rocks, mud, gravel, bays??? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I would go get your brother in law and see if he can find you some! (HAHA) How are you doing? How has your winter been going? Tell Donny to get ahold of me he's missing out!!!

Good to hear from you Hawk!! Winter has been fine. Too much work and not enough fishing, that is for sure. Haven't even been out with Donny yet this winter. His wife keeps a pretty tight hold on him. I hear you nailed them on Red! That had to be a blast. I've done okay on the pannies this winter. Haven't hit some of the spots I was hoping to though. Got into some really nice perch on ML a couple weeks ago. They are starting to turn into my favorite pursuit. Donny went North one weekend and got into some really nice fish. I will let him know he is missing out. Good luck as the ice goes out. Does the email in your profile work? I tried shooting you an email about a month back and in was returned?? Anyway, take care.

Thanks. I'll add it to my address book. Good to hear from you again. I am trying to convince Donny and Nick to head north for a day towards ice out. Nothing like a few hundred miles on the truck for some giant pannies!! Take care. I'll make sure to tell Donny you are nailing the fish this year....as always grin.gif

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks

      Well better you found it now and not this weekend or you would be SOL fore sure being the 4th.  Nothing wrong with a good old lake bath though!  Good Luck.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Use leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama.

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.
