Hi tearin lips (Bill),

It is good to know that for many years we have been supporting an FMers business. We stop each year and purchase about 5 pounds of leeches and other misc. bait and tackle on our way out to the annual Rainy trip. How are leeches looking? I know we have been through a few times and you have been too low to sell us numerous pounds. We are coming up this Thurs (Aug. 17th). Do you think we could "reserve" some leeches... or perhaps with a heads up that we are coming, you could have some extras on hand?

Thanks,

Ben

Thanks Anylake, however I have only been enployed at RLOS for two years. Our leeches are looking good, however we are not selling them by the pounds anymore. We will have plenty on hand for you guys though. I will be working the 2:00 pm to 10:00 pm on thursday, hopefully our paths will cross! grin.gif

Take Care, and have a safe trip up! grin.gif

Paul, I was up there for a week recently. Shucks, I think you are already there...wish I was. grin.gif

Buy leeches by the pound! In 5 days we burned 2 pounds of leeches between the wife and I. Fishing was fantastic! Crawlers were good too, but leeches were much better.

Trolling cranks got one fish, but it was big at 26".

Chuck Im headed up tomorrow morning. Leeches did it for you hey? I guess Ill have to get a pound or two now. We were up a few days ago and crawlers were the ticket but Im going to try leeches more and crank more too. We saw lots of fish suspended off reefs. Ill let ya know how we did.

Northlander, we trolled, and trolled....it was horrible trolling bite for us. Other fisherman that camped nearby trolled and with the same results. I got lucky with one fish. We trolled open basin, shallow, deep...only one walleye. Not even a pike...tried for pike too.

Fish the outer edges of rockpiles with a long snelled leech with a blade. Gold was best. Anywhere from 20-30 feet was ideal, and had one spot where 40' produced a lot of nice eaters, but I wouldn't recommend going that deep cause they would croak on the way up. Luckily they were keepable for a meal. grin.gif

Smallies were fun in the rocks also.

We fished MN side just west of the Brule Narrows....endless reefs to hit all over the lake.

Same for us. Trolling reefrunners didnt do a thing. Lindy rigs and macs smile blades took all our fish. Baits changed all the time between minnows, leeches and crawlers. Lots of small fish, only a few in the slot.

We caught most of our fish in 30-55' of water.
