Can anyone tell me about this place? Would it be a good spot to bring the wife an two little girls ages 1 and 7? Thanks.

I have a seasonal site at Moonlight Bay on the west side. Bike path is close, can fish the lake with wind from any direction and it is close to town. I have three little ones about the same age and they have a blast. Tim and Dina are great people.

I haven't been there in 15 years, but it was perfect for kids at that time.

A few years ago there was a resort going by that name and it was located in portage bay on the upper northwest side of the bay. Stayed there for an archery bear hunt.

New Leech Lake Campground is on the north end on Portage Bay. There is a bunch of kids there to play with. Small swimming beach, but nice people up there. Good muskie fishing there, but don't expect to catch any walleyes on that end of the lake.

IS this the place that used to be called Northstar? on the shore between Waboose and the river inlet?

I have not been to leech since the fishing slowed off. USed to camp at the Federal grounds as well as at NorthStar.

I have camped at the Federal campground at the end of portage bay and really liked it. It was nice.

Also, Stony Point campground is very nice, I have never stayed there, but have visited people and it seemed nice. Really haven't been to any of the private places lately.

Just looked up the address online, and it is not the Northstar. I haven't been to the northstar in about 5 years, I remember some good times when Tom used to be the owner. Is this still a resort or has it been sold off into private lots now?

Northstar is still a resort, my wifes family has been going up the second saturday of July for a week over the last 50 years. Just got back from the trip and the crappie fishing was great!

Fisherdog, is this the group that puts up the huge circus tent? we ran into a group 4-6 years ago, the Patriarch was a really guy, he said they had been doing this trip for years, each family was responsible for one day of cooking. If I remember correctly they took up basically the whole north shore of the resort.

How does the resort look? Haven't been there in 3-4 years. last time I was there, they had only 2 or 3 cabins and the rest was RV.

Did ya catch any walleyes?

No circus tents at the Northstar resort, we all rent cabins or have campers on annually rented camper lots. I didn't fish for walleyes as I could catch all the 11-15 inch crappies I wanted.

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
