hello, would like to introduce myself

9 posts in this topic

I wanted to say hello and that i like the forum. A little about me, when i was ten my father took me to Leech Lake for a week fishing trip. It was the best time of my life. Now almost twenty two years latter I am taking him back to the same lodge on Leech lake the end of May beginning of June. I have a lot of questions on what kind of gear, tackle and clothing to bring along. I have alot of questions and have been trying to read previous posts so I dont waste anyones time going over old material. I am grateful in advance for any help and look forward to this forum. Thanks.

Welcome to the site and I am happy for you to find yourself back on the water sharing the fun with your little guy.

What you will find on the site are many different forums for which you can find information on.

Your first post is real general, so hard to decifier what you are exactly looking for (gear bags, jigs, rapalas, hooks,rods, reels,).

Take the time to really get to know the many different forums. When I'm fishing for Bass, I'll go to the Bass forum. If I'm planning on fishing crappies or walleyes-perch, I'll go into those specific forums.

As for geographical areas, the site breaks down the major watersheds or bigger lake destinations for you to surf and post in.

I think you will find that everyone here is more than willing to share information with you....except for that honey hole on their local lake.

Let us know what you are looking for and we'll help you out!

Hope you enjoy the site!

Sounds like a great trip you have coming up. There's nothing I'd rather do than the type of trip you have planned. I try to fit several in each year with my dad. We always have a great time mostly because we're doing somthing we love together. Check out the Leech lake forums especially the week before you head up for the most recent reports.

Also, Welcome to the site! laugh.gif

SAR5, Welcome aboard. Your a good son.

Visit the Leech lake forum for locations and presentations that work for that time of year and check with your resort just prior to your trip.

As far as clothing, Could be shorts and T-shirt weather or it could be snowing. The breathable rain gear doubles as a shell to cut the wind, use fleece for insulating layers.

Welcome to the site SAR5.

You are doing the right thing by checking out the older posts. There is a lot of good information already found here. But don't be afraid to ask something dumb either?? Some topics haven't been touched on in awhile and could be a good refresher for everybody.

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.

      Did you access that stretch from Wilson Park, or below Cathedral High School @eyeguy 54?  
    • phishnerd
      I guess a crayfish pattern might work up there eh?
    • eyeguy 54
      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait
