OK I'm still here. I guess is that the lake has frozen out? And all you guy's are on Cass.

OH well, looks like we'll need more beer in the shack!!!!!!!

It's a distinct possibility all the wolves in longville made it over to leech and ate all the perch.

On a serious note...you can find the jumbos in leech, but I think you'll get more action and size on cass or winnie.

Well, I was hooked into this trip. I fished winnie and cass before.

Its more than just catching JUMBO's, its trying to fish as many great perch lakes as I can. I've caught 15" perch in three diffrent states. Not looking for that on Leech although

I'm sure they swim in the lake. Its just four OLD guys and a bunch of BEER. Leech was drawn out of the hat this year.

Thank You

Thanks to all. It sounds like we'll have a fish fry! I also know from fishing in MN. and MI. that in 1 month things will change.One of tour group just had a triple by-pass and a pig

valve put in. The rest of us are praying that its a gas valve!

A Dr. told him NO drilling hole?? We bought him a new shovel

so he can help get us out.

Thanks Lucky Dave! I know that lake travel will change and the fish bite will change in one month. Just trying to keep up with the changes. size line, lures, bait and about how much Beer four old guys will need?

If you are going after perch and staying at Brindley's you are going to do fine. You are in the right area of the lake. Some of the best late ice perch fishing is done right in front of Brindley's or withing a mile or two of there. Good luck and I think you are going to be pleasantly surprised!

I would like to thank everyone for the info on the lake. And from what I read on this site and others, Brindley's will produce.

With only 26 more days to go I feel like I'm 10 years old going

on a great adventure.

Here in northern WI. the perch fishing is awful this year, you can watch them on the locater or on the camera. They come up and go down, very few takers. The ice is the best its been in years, with only 1-2" of snow. Dang I want fresh perch tonight.

Last time up on Leech we caught most of our perch on walleye jigging spoons or fatheads under a very light bobber. Found a few over 10".

If you can get to portage and fish the silt sand break you get really get into the 10-12"ers. small spoons and drop down hooks have been working good with minnow heads.

Thank You fishgutz77: I don't know if time will allow for running and gunning other lakes. But thanks again. It looks like we'll just fish out from Brindley's, they take you out, set you up, and all we have to do is kick back, catch fish and enjoy. If it all comes together. cool

I believe fishgutz was refering to portage bay of leech lake which is due north, northeast of traders bay. Hope you guy's have a nice time. Fish fry with a few beers, life don't get any better!!

I'll make sure the resort picks us up last!!!

Thank you for your help. And thank all the rest for all the help. Here in WI. you wouldn't get anyone to help! Its like a

007 movie. I don't know why you would but if you ever come this way [email protected]

Grumpy old men twice this week.

The colors varied for us when we were up. Spoons, gold and blue glow seemed to be my best option. But I was told otherwise for this past weekend (red). Salmos we used were the sucker pattern I think its called???

I would like to Thank! Tweeder;Jigginlslife;3rdcrowwinglad;stoney;leechlsker547;jbmaster angler;trollen slow;fishgutz77;The Thompsons and lukeydave;

For all your help. We should be at Brindley's before dark on the 11th. All we need is our license and bait? If the bait shop guy is anything like around here, we'll need some of the top secret killer lures of the day. You would think that the bag of lures that I've been buying for 40 years now would work, But? I can always use more! The Grandson can spend his life trying them all!

Thanks again

Team AARP

Little tip from this past weekend, and just so you have to go buy more stuff! All but one walleye we caught this weekend was on a less than one inch (not sure the exact size) Northland Forrage Minnow in the Glo Perch color with a half a fathead on it. We tried differetn colors, but that was the only one that caught a fish. Not just the minnow head on it either head, half the minnow with the head. worked this set up constantly 6"-1' off the bottom. Literally could not get them to bite anything else.

3rdCrowWingLad: Thanks for the heads up! Will make the lure run tomorrow on the way up!

All I need is 10-9" Perch and I'll have a fish fry!!! The other 3 guy's can watch me eat! Thats all it takes for the trip to be a success. OH and drink all my beer!

      I would not call a casino an active income, everything is very situational there, it does not depend on you, but on the casino itself, so you need to be very careful about this

      I agree with you. But you will definitely need better components to set up an Rl craft hosting service. First of all, you will need the latest version of Forge. For hosting rlcraft requires these details  .  Furthermore, hosting a server also requires 3 to 4GB of RAM.

      Hi, I remember going to university and I stopped going out because I couldn't keep up with my writing and I stayed at home all the time. But then a friend of mine told me about: brillassignment review .  The BrillAssignment.co.uk team is made up of highly qualified writers, born and bred in the UK, who will do all the work for you. And you'll be out walking in the meantime .

      Hei, jeg vil gjerne anbefale deg det beste nettcasinoet: top casino norge. De første tegnene på de beste virtuelle klubbene vises i begynnelsen av spillet eller når du oppretter en konto. Institusjonen skal ha et tiltalende design og brukervennlig grensesnitt. det er mulig at mange nye brukere ikke forstår hvordan de skal trykke på knappene riktig og raskt forlater ressursen. De fremtredende knappene og det intuitive grensesnittet er spesielt viktig.

      On the south end...  Walleyes are starting to stack up in various areas of the south shore with some good fall fishing taking place.  Most anchored up jigging with fatheads and frozen shiners.   Various techniques are still proving effective in catching, but as water temps cool, jigging will be the desire of walleyes and has been successful this past week.   Trolling crankbaits is still catching fish.  If you are struggling catching the fish you are jigging or the fish are spread out, try pulling cranks which will put your lure in front of many fish in which you only need a taker here and there for a successful day. Good numbers of fish are still being caught pulling spinners, especially over flats or on the outside of structure.  On the Rainy River...   Some very good reports on the Rainy River this week.  Shiners are in the river and so are the walleyes.  Is this the big run, not sure, but most are catching fish, and some big ones.   Anglers report nice fish both in Four Mile Bay and the river, but these fish are moving around.  Try different spots until you find them.  Look for clouds of emerald shiners, they show up nicely on most sonar.   This is the fall run and it should only get better.  These river fish are moving, once you find them, it can be a memorable day.  Looking for fish, trying different spots can be helpful in finding fish.  Anchoring up in the same spot all day hoping the fish come through can make for a tough day.     Jigging with a frozen shiner or trolling cranks in the river are both catching walleyes. Sturgeon activity continues to pick up as water cools.  Most fishing the holes of the river.  A 3 - 4 ounce weight with lower current has been sufficient combined with a sturgeon rig loaded with crawlers or crawlers and frozen shiners. Fall is a great time to take your own boat on the small waters of the Rainy River.  Boat ramps scattered from Wheeler's Point to Baudette east to Birchdale.  Up at the NW Angle...  Walleye fishing stays consistently very good up at the Angle.  Walleyes are being caught using the three techniques mentioned above.  Some fishing MN waters, others venturing amongst the Ontario side of the lake.  Good fish being caught on both sides.   In addition to fish still over deep mud, traditional structure is also holding walleyes.  Points, rock islands, sunken islands, neck down areas, etc.   Some nice muskies were caught this week.  October is traditionally a great month with trolling shorelines in the mix of techniques.   The government of Canada has officially announced they are lifting the COVID vaccination requirement and is allowing the ArriveCan app to be optional starting October 1, 2022.  This will make the drive to the NW Angle for many, which includes about 40 miles through Canada, once again possible.
