Crawlers/ Leeches

Recommended Posts

Are leeches still going good, or is it more of a crawler and spinner bite right now? I'm taking a trip to the pond this weekend and wondering whats going better.

Thanks

That can change back and forth at any time. At this point if I were you, I'd probably feel safe leaving minnows on shore but I wouldn't head out there looking for walleyes unless I had both crawlers AND leeches on board. I've had this go back and forth literally within the same day of fishing. Sometimes they want a leech dangled in front of their nose, other times they will respond to the crawler spinner zipping by.

Don't forget crankbaits as well. My last walleye outing was saved by the decision to troll crankbaits after the live bait did nothing. I'd start with crawlers though and try leeches next.

I am also heading up this weekend w/ my wife, staying at a place on the SE end. Will I need to head all the way to the Flats or can the eyes be found in the nearer reefs. It seems most of the reports refer to the flats.

Thanks

Corkin' on the rock reefs is kicking out fish and more so the ones you're looking to keep.

I didn't hit the flats at all last weekend and I got fish. Not many for the pan, but the just over 16" to 19" fish were more common than any other weekend. I fished mostly gravel in 16-22' of water running leeches under a cork and did some shallow trolling in 6-12' of water with shad raps on the rocks. Starting to see lots of decent perch on the raps over the rocks too.

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?

      tried this last year,   not worth it in my opinion.    But I always wondered if I could eat the rusty crayfish.  has anyone tried?
