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.

      Kitchen staff is a big issue. The cook got fired recently but overall it’s owned/managed by not the brightest people. Same owners at moosebirds. I think they’re in over their heads. They had good pizza imo until they switched to the stupid wood fire pizza oven and created their own crappy crust recipe. They’ve been changing menus weekly and jacking prices-I’m sure some of that is reflecting the increased cost of groceries but not impressed at all lately. I know someone who works there and the help isn’t very happy either. Wolf bay is where it’s at lol.

      August bite is pretty good.

      BigV..... how things can change in a day. I fished from 8:15 until 11:45 this morning when I caught walleye #50. Probably the best morning ive ever had on the lake. Lindy rig and half crawler was the method. This morning when you graphed those pods of fish they bit.  As far as the lake in July and August? Personally August is my favorite month. Typically when you locate fish they bite. Wind blown areas holding perch minnows is what I concentrate on. Quite often it's sand pockets for me. That was the key today as the fish were coughing up perch minnows. Fishing always snaps back into shape when they get off the bugs. Soon the basin will be alive with the trollers. I really like the leadcore bite. Usually the quality of the fish caught is quite good. I'll be fishing walleyes the rest of the week hopefully continuing to report an improved bite.

      Same! It’s been terrible for me. I always blame myself but I feel like rumor around the lake is that it isn’t worth fishing for walleyes after June or before September. I hope that’s not the case and it is just me lacking knowledge.

      Excellent report Muskies!  Thank you!  Also really appreciate the pictures that you include in your posts.  We are looking forward to being on the lake boat camping in 16 days.

      Fished Whitefish both Sunday and Monday from about 6AM until 10AM each day. Used only artificial lures.  Trolled  weed edges some of the time with Shad Raps #8 size, and then a little deeper with the #9 size Flicker Minnow.  Only caught one 29 inch Northern trolling.  Spent about 1/2 of the time casting  a jig and soft plastic into about 12 ft to 18 ft  where there were decent, but not great weeds.  Caught  several small Northerns plus 2 more that were 27" and 28".   The bonus was a 17.5" Largemouth.  No Walleyes either day.   Monday had several "bite offs" on the soft plastics.  That is kinda the problem with using them where there are Pike.

      Timber Bay Lodge is a good spot, I always go there when I go to birch lake.
