Places to get lunch and a beverage on Leech

9 posts in this topic

It's been a while since I've had a few days without my family to do some hard fishing on Leech. Does anyone have any recommendations on places with boat-up access for lunch/dinner and a beverage? Any location on the lake will work but ideally on the main lake or north or east side.

Any info on the bite would be greatly appreciated as well!

I will happily share a fishing report to anyone with info.

Thanks.

Wow - I want to head up for lunch today!

Does anyone know if Horseshoe Bay/Pioneer has boat up chow? Any others? Looking for a little bit of variety.

Thanks again for the information.

You need to check out Hiawatha Beach Resort on Steamboat Bay of Leech Lake. The lodge was totally remodeled two winters ago and it is absolutely amazing. It is by far the nicest building on the entire lake, you will be blown away. They have a full bar and full menu plus pleanty of dock space to dock your boat. To top it off, the Jacobsons (Owners) are awesome people. Take my advice, you will not be disappointed.

P.S......The bacon cheeseburgers are mouthwateringly good!!

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      Camping on west side for the weekend.  Anyone else be up that way.  Will have boat and maybe open seats when the kids get tired of fishing.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
