Leeches

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone out there know where I can get my hands on some larger leeches. I've been looking around the FM area but the few I have found are pretty small. It's a tough time of year. Any help would be appreciated.

Don't come looking in Perham, MN they are very small. Some bait shops have stopped selling them for the year.

Yep....Fargo bait is just off 10th street a few blocks south of main. They're generally a good place to get bait locally. I was there a couple weeks ago and they were pretty small, but I did buy a few dozen and then managed to let the ones I didn't use die in my fridge.

The last time I was at that bait shop on Highway 10 between Glyndon and Dilworth they had some nice bulk leeches. That was a month ago, however. Right now it will be tough to find the big ones.

Good luck.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
