Slim-

Keep me posted on the fishing on Leech this winter. I have my ice gear with me in Grand Forks, well my rods and jigs and the hand auger, so i will be doing some traveling to some lakes this winter. Pretty sure Leech is only about 2 hours for me from there.

Wishn, good to here from you. We just spent the week after x-mas at the lake and I was able to get out a few times mainly to try out some new gear(aqua-vu & fish trap)the wife gave me the 6800 last year. I caught a few small perch,and only one walleye. The underwater camera works really well on leech, it's pretty fun to use. I did get some reports of panfish coming out of shingabee bay and minor walleye action in other areas of walker bay & agency. There is 12-15 in. of ice and people are driving on the lake, but watch out for the channels. We'll be heading up this weekend for some more fishing and snowmobiling. GOOD LUCK!

I, unfortuneately have not been up since just after the first of the year. We do hope to be up for the eelpout festival. The month of jan. has been a busy one and it didn't involve much fishing or snowmobiling. Hopefully this will change in feb.

Fished Leech on Sat. In our area, Pine Point, the top of the ice was terrible, it was impossible to drive so that limited our range to fish. We didn't have the sleds up there. So needless to say it was pretty slow, a few perch here and there but nothing big or consistant, anyone else have any better luck?

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
