Kelly P...reservations still good?

12 posts in this topic

Kelly,

Just wondering how it looks for our parties reservation for March 27 and 28? Not asking for weather prognostications, but...still holding my breath. If the access gets too nasty, will you call or should I plan on calling the morning of or the day before...I know you've had a busy winter...thought we might bring you a libation for the off season...by the way, how's the bite been for your paying customers? I'm guessing you are still moving during the night! You may need to put someone else's name on the shacks next year!

The access is doing fine right now but I am worried about the 50's forcasted for the 24/25. Right now I'm thinking there is a better then 50% chance that we pull off the lake on the 25. The lake will be fine but that shallow water in close will fall apart.

Our crappie bite has been pretty slow the past 3 weeks. Just the oposite of other years when the best bite was in March. But normally we lost the snow cover in March and this year we got the snowcover in March. I'm interested in seeing what happens when the snowcover leaves again.

We'll call if we pull off the lake.

do you have any openings for this weekend 23/24/25? I knew we were cutting it pretty close, but we've had such great luck when we are the only ones out there...we might be able to pull a few strings to get there...

kelly p,

Coming up to fish with you Wednesday and Thursday. Do I need an extension for my auger? How have the crappies been going the last couple days?

Since Walleye season is closed, you need an extension to fish them. I am selling them at only $1000.00 American Cash Dollars each. Includes one Driveout access only! shocked.gifblush.gifgrin.gif

Don't be offended TBD, that question gets asked a lot on the forum here. Good luck on your trip and be sure to post a report on how you do!

We get asked about extensions many times everyday, and many times when we answer they look at us "really"? confused.gif I almost need two currently for drilling out the houses, now that should throw a wrench in the whole works. TWO EXTENSIONS ?! grin.gif

      Well better you found it now and not this weekend or you would be SOL fore sure being the 4th.  Nothing wrong with a good old lake bath though!  Good Luck.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Use leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama.

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.
