The report last week was that the bite was unusually shallow for the water temp being so warm. If there is an ample chop on the water, don't be afraid to pull some cranks at night.

BigBadOzzy...

I will be staying on Leech for the first time also starting the 17th -20th. The place I am staying at said the eye's were biting between Goose Island and the Hardwoods. I have never been to Leech so that is all I know..good luck and stay in touch..I run a 18ft full windshield Alumacraft..if you see me, although your chances at the Lotto might be better..ha.

head east s-east from big hardwood till you find the drop off and work that by drifting with jigs and shinners or fatheads

up or down it dont matter the fish will be there

walleyes,pike and perch use lime green fireballs @ stingers

also try between goose island and pine point same rigs

good luck guys

the drop starts at 9ft and drops to15-17ft

the flat between goose and pine varies 6 to12-15ft

just find a good wind and drift

if the lake goes flat try the drops and humps on the north end of Walker bay

good luck and post how you do

      Mississippi is iced up above the 10th street dam. There is a little ice flow in the middle.

      I'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      Twin is pretty deep. One of the last to freeze over in most years.    I wasnt home yesterday evening to see if any more kids went through the ice.    I will did the spud out and see how thick  it is by shore tomorrow.
