Leech Walleyes

7 posts in this topic

Any one know this years size of walleyes on Leech from the stocked good year classes. And what kind of a bite Leech may have in store for this year. I believe there were two or three good year classes recently. I am thinking they are still in the small range 12-13 inches at best.

I think your right another year or so before it returns.

Strib had an article on Sunday about this. The 2005 year class is currently 12-13 inches and projected to be 14-15 later this fall. Very good 2006 year class behind it as well. Cormorant control was mentioned to continue this year.

Nice to see some solid progress there. Any predictions on how the Gov is going to do this weekend?

I also think it will take another year or 2 for leech to get hot again, but that said I also think that there are allot of 20+ inch fish swimming around. Last fall there were good numbers of 12 inch eyes that I would think could be pusing 14 this spring. Also consider the very low fishing presure the last two years. I am looking forward to a decent year out there with lots of fish eaither too big or too small to keep. But anyway isn't catching the fun part of it all!!

My $.02, one more year. I have herd reports of 14-15" but find that hard to believe. It sounds very promising for years to come if they keep shooting/stocking. But I still think it's to early. We are going to give it a shot, I hope all the old hot spots have them stacked like cord wood. I'm thinking most of these fish havn't seen a lure for 3 or 4 years !! Good luck

I'll be up there with some buddies off of steamboat. We did well last fall and I am optimistic for opener. Late last Summer we couldn't catch anything to keep, they were too big (not great numbers but big fish). Last fish I caught there was over 5lbs and it's on a roll of film that I'll get this weekend and post when we get back. I'll post our report from this weekend too!!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
