Leech Lake

Recommended Posts

I have a quick question for anyone. I am heading up to leech for the first time this weekend and was wondering if there are any regs or other laws that i should know about. Any advice on where to fish would also be appreciated.

Thanks

18"-26" Must go back, 4 fish limit

Fish the points, Pine, Stoney, Ottertail. Try both leechs and crawlers or pull cranks.

Where are you staying?? We are at Anderson Cove this weekend. We did really well out on Pine Point a few weeks back, about

15FOW.

We are staying with a friend and his family about 8 miles north of Walker. Where is pine point? And Anderson Cove?

I am thinking the goose island flats as a starting point.

Anderson Cove is about 8 miles out of Walker on the west side of the lake down the road from Hiawatha Resort. Pine Point is a good 15 minute boat ride north of Walker bay. I wish I could be more specific but I am always the passenger in the boat. If I was on the lake I could tell you how to get there.

Look at google earth or live maps.com. These will give you a good overview of the lake and surrounding area.

Use the Leech Lake Area Chamber's web site and click on resorts. Most of the resort links will have a map locator link.

How did you guys do up there over the weekend?? Only time we fished Leech was Sunday night and we killed the Walleye, couldn't keep them off the line it was that good. Must of caught 30 Walleye's from 8pm to 9:30pm it was awesome.

We also went to this other lake Saturday morning caught 15 Crappies that were right around 12"-13" these things were dandies then went back Sunday morning and caught 10 more around the same size.

That sounds like a great bite. Any tips on depth, baits or general location? Did you get plenty of keeper size fish?

On Leech we were fishing Walker Bay, drifting from 13ft to 7ft there is a sand bar out there where we were just nailing them. Using Leeches with a plain red hook split shot sinker about 2ft up that was the key. Everything we caught were right around 14" and the biggest that was thrown back was 21".

Will be back up there the weekend of the 12th of September.

I spent the weekend on Leech as well and all things considered I thought the walleye fishing was the best I have seen in years. I caught a number of slot fish but also plenty of keepers. I was staying at Stony Point and fished mostly reefs on the east side of the lake.

We didn't do very well last weekend. We only got out for a couple hours on sat and didn't catch any eye's. On sunday we did hear that people were doing well in Walker Bay, but we were on our way out.

We hammered them Sunday night between 8pm to 9:15pm in Walker Bay. Caught our limit in about 2 hours.

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.
