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.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
