Leech muskies

5 posts in this topic

looks like I'll be working on a condo project on the south end of leech on and off again this summer. I'll start bringing the boat along after muskie season opens, but I've never fished the lake. Any pointers, places to start? North-south...weeds, rocks?? I hear leech is a tough lake to get started on...Any local guides anyone would recommend? Thanks guys.

First of all, where are you working Traveler? I'm working on a developement on the south side of Leech (Trapper's Landing) I have a few of the local crew sharing a bit of info with me. Maybe we can get out? My boat will be in tow most of the summer while I am out here. Shoot me an email when you get a chance and we will hook up.

If you want a good guide on Leech for muskies, go to [Note from admin: Please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you.] Jack is very experienced on Leech. He also makes a variety of spinnerbaits and buzzbaits that work very well. I believe he is a member of the Leech Lake Guide Coalition. Check out his site and see the pictures and lures for yourself. He's a great guy.

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
