Do any of the resorts plow and maintain a road system similar to those at Red and Lake of the Woods?    I would like to put my house on Leech, but don't want to get stranded with no way off.   Thanks for any reply.

Hopefully someone with Leech Lake experience can chime in, but I do have a recommendation if there are no plowed roads for you:

Assuming your driving a 4 wheel drive truck, leave your house at your access point and drive to where you want to go first.  Pick your set spot, drive a loop over it so you have a way in and out, then go back and get your house.

Breaking your own trail that way takes some time but works pretty well in the absence of a plow.

Trappers Landing on the south end of the main lake.  Very good roads, pro shop, service, etc...  Good place to go out of, lots of spots on that end of the lake.  Good reports from their website as well.

Thanks for the replies.    This is just what I was looking for.   I have a place in Hackensack, so this would be a lot closer to go to.  Thanks again.

      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.

      Any clue how it started? Really a bummer. Just remembering some of the fun times there.

      Gents, Anyone been to OT lately that could comment on ease of ice travel. Snow depth, drifts and ice.  Would traveling nearly anywhere be acceptable with exception to rivers/creeks?

      Went by yesterday. Just a pile of steel sheeting and ashes. Sad.
