Must be rough going out at midnight.... I have to wait till 4 a.m. down at the governors opener on Leech... We have a dinner tomm night and another one on Friday night... Then a lunch on Saturday at Huddles and a Awesome dinner planned at Trapper's Landing(www.trapperslanding.com) next to Huddles on the south end of Leech... Did I mention between all that food that I will be fishing too....

Good luck,

Beef

Beef,

What have you been hearing about the fishing at Leech. My buddies and I went there for four years and stayed at Huddles. We haven't been there since they started eliminating the cormorants. Last week the Minneapolis paper said they are expecting a pretty good season based on the success of the last few years stocking program. Do you anticipate it returning to the good ol' days?

They say it will be a 10 year cycle to have it prime and ready to go... HOWEVER, I think this year we will see an awesome amount of 13-15 inch fish with some pigs mixed in.... Catching a lot of 19-26 inchers like the past will still take a few more years I THINK!!!!!! I'm anticapating a good to VERY good year on leech... But I'm hoping it could return to it's prime here sooner than later...

TC can you give my cell a call today after 3:45 but before 5:00 p.m. tonight... I have a few questions for ya....

Good Luck,

Beef

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
