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.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
