ice leaving Leech

6 posts in this topic

My friend up north, the commissioner of shermans cove, former mayor of Hermitsville, a retired public servant from the good city of Mpls. has informed me that the ice is leaving Leech. My friend, who I can verify is a known liar at large, about all things nautical and anything to do with everything that isnt his business, may be right. I hope so, I would like to get my boat wet and get to my favorite spot on Leech. Can anybody back the Commissioner up? Is the ice leaving Leech? Thanks, Bubbleboy!

We drove past Thursday and it looked pretty locked up. Could be opening now, though.

I'll let you know tomorrow night, I have a catering gig up there. When I was there on Friday the main basin looked ready. Bout 300 yards of open water before it was to the ice and the ice didn't look like it would stand for much more.

I expect the ice in Walker Bay out by end of the day. No report on the big lake.

Big lake portion looked pretty slushy. Shouldn't be long till she is totally open. There was a ton of open water out there.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
