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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
