Coming up this weekend. Staying on Pine Point. Anyone know if there are any roads out of there. Have 1 sled. Could bring some ATVs but it sounds like they're not much use. Hoping to get out a ways with the trucks, go from there.

I too am curious about truck/wheelhouse access onto leech lake.

I spoke to many of the resorts around walker and none of the ones i have talked with have plowed roads. A few of them claimed there is decent access out of the public access in walker. One of the resorts i talked to said Anderson's Grand Vu has roads plowed, i have tried to call them 4 or 5 times with no success.

I really want to bring the wheel house up (never fished leech), but without confirmation, it's not looking good.

from what I have heard if your fishing walker bay don't bother bringing anything other than your snowmobile and portable unless you want to spend your time shoveling.

I have also heard that there are limited roads off Andersons Grand Vu. However it didn't sound like you could explore to far off those roads unless you had snowmobiles.

I 'm on pine point and will be up there this weekend. might be to late for some of you but will report back on the status.

After spending the past hour or so on the phone tracking down information, this is what i found;

the public access in walker, onto walker bay, is tough going and snowmobiles are recommended.

if you want roads and the ability to get onto the lake with a vehicle, the only resort i have been told with roads is Anderson's grand Vu on Pine Point. 3 other resorts around the area, as well as his dad, have confirmed this.

Looks like i'll be bringing up the wheel house after all. grin

edited to add; more or less what Tweeder said above.

I think with the thaw thats coming statewide next week will settle alot of the snow down. The following week cold again.

Hopefully with the melt down and a hard refreeze, we will be able travel again!!

Not sure If we are going up now this weekend or not, if we do will keep an eye out for you. If its perch your looking for the pine point area is pretty popular, the Grand Vu side has been the best for me in the past. Dont get a lot of walleyes out there, usually head into walker bay and fish the humps for those.

Good luck

Just not sure where you will be able to get to.

      What sd card shows the best contours for the Canadian side of namakan lake. I have the navionics us- Canada but it only shows 5 ft increments. Looking for 1 ft. Thanks in advance.

      @Getanet Tough weekend for learning new water.  If you head up that way again shoot me a pm.  I have a lot of time on Cass and usually do pretty well.  I will be up there the second week of June for a couple weeks.

      Topped out at 55 degrees Sunday afternoon.  Did ok on panfish, just really tough fishing in the howling wind.  The male crappies are getting really dark.

      I love the location of the Retreat Lodge, never stayed there though.

      I finally got out fishing last week on Thursday. I used a gulp alive minnow. one of the smaller ones, and it worked great. I put it on a pink ratso with a white body and the gulp on it and the crappies and bluegills would not leave it alone. Other baits were not as effective that afternoon.

      I am helping out with the MN SATT (high school fishing) and Classic Bass Pro tournament trail to help fill 20 more boat marshal spots on Le Homme Dieu and the chain on June 14, 2019.  As a boat marshal you will be placed in a boat with some of top bass pros in Minnesota and the country.  The likes of Dean Capra, Seth Feider, John Figi, Matt Peters,  and many more top pros fish these events.  (not sure if they are fishing the Le Homme Dieu event or not, but it gives you an idea of the caliber of anglers fishing this trail and the opportunity you could have to be in their boat!) Your job would be to record fish on an app and make sure the anglers are following all the rules of the trail.  There is much more information on the sign up page and if you have additional questions about what is require you can call my cell 612-819-8500.  We opened this up to High School Anglers first, and now we are opening it up the general public.  You must be 13 years or older and this is a great opportunity to learn something new by just being in the boat with some of these anglers.  Here is a link to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b084ba5ad2ba6fb6-classic2  sign up before the spots are filled up!

      Hello David, we visited Vermilion for years until purchasing some land in the Frazer Bay / Smarts Bay area. We have stayed at a number of resorts, but really enjoyed Retreat Lodge due to the owners, reasonable prices and fantastic fishing within 2 miles of where it is located! Good luck with your decision!   Vermilion is a one of a kind lake!
