Hey Terry, Bringing the whole family up to Huddles for the second time on June 20th-30th.Last year we did O.K for eyes at Diamond Point and some of the humps to the West of the resort.We've never tried for Smallies before!,does Leech have a healthy population of Smallies? Where would one try for them at this time of the year? And if I may ask what type of presentation would be the best to offer?

By chance is there anyone out there who knows about the Smallies in Leech Lake ? And if so, what kind of presentation would you expect to catch them with for this time of the season? Never caught any on Leech before just curious that's all! Thanks

T-290,<P>I don't believe smallmouth bass swim in Leech Lake-- at least not in catchable numbers. I have heard various rumors of smallmouths being taken out there over the years, though I can't say as I've ever seen or caught one there myself.<P>If you're really into catching smallmouths while you're in the area, try Little Boy, Woman Lake, Mule or Baby. Lots of fish in these lakes-- muskies too. Have a good one!<P>-a friend called Toad

Hey Toad,<BR>Thanks for the response! I've never caught any smallies in Leech so I didn't know if they existed or not! But I will certainly try some of those others that you have suggested. Thanks, T-290

Hey guys, I'm going up to Lake Wabedo on June 2nd. Can anyone tell me where and how to catch some smallmouths? What is the best lure, presentation, and depth to fish? I know there are a few rock piles in there, are they good spots? What about Little Boy is that a better Smallmouth lake, if so where and how should I fish it? Well, any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.<P>KEEP CASTING...

While thumbing through the photo album of the Resort we stay on over on the east side of Leech Lake, there are a few pictures of Smallmouth. However, they are very rare and I know of no part of the lake where people actually fish them. I'd try Woman Lake for a day if I wanted a shot at smallmouth

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
