Camping/Fishing Question

Recommended Posts

JBMasterAngler

I have a vacation in both may and august...I'm just curious which would be the better time to fish leech? I camped there in august of '07 and was good, but really bad weather. I'm a multi species guy, so I'm looking for the overall assessment. Thanks in advance.

really it all depends on what your going for. if you want to look for the "ever-elusive walter" earlier is always better. if you want to go throw plugs as bass and slimers august would be your best bet. perch and pannies eat all year round eel pout...not so sure

I would go with August,there are too many variables in May regarding the weather. Bad weather in august isn't as bad as bad weather in May as far as fishing wise. You might be dealing with t-storms and such, but at least they're fast moving and you can play the barometer. Either way, you'll be fishing, so it's a win/win.

I would recommend August. The weather in May can be miserable. Last summer even the walleyes were biting decently in August and it'a a lot more comfortable on the water. You can always find somewhere out of the wind and can fish in the rain. It beats freezing in May. Good luck!

I'll definitely be fishing the out of the way areas, I have a small boat, so I don't really have a choice...but as said already, there's plenty of safe® places to be.

JB are you looking for a cabin to stay in while you're up either time? I'm on a great private lake 4 miles south of Longville.

I've guided up there on Leech and other lakes for some time, so I may have some tips for you too.

Let me know if you're interested by sending me your email or Cell number.

We'll looking to do some camping, but could be open for other plans. Private lake huh? You didn't happen to appear on the tony dean show a couple years ago did you? I remember him and a local fished a private lake in that area and caught some nice bass and pike.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
