Leech Lake Northerns

Recommended Posts

C_TRAIN

My wife and I are headed up to Leech Lake In February. Our main goal is to tip-up fish for northerns, All fish will be catch and release, except a few small ones for pickling. My uncle gave me a few spots to start(steamboat bay) with, but he has not fished Leech for many years. If someone wants suggest a spot i would appreciate it.

Thanks

If anyone knows of any other lakes in the area for northerns that would also help. Just general Info no exact spots.

Thanks

Try Lake May close to walker. It's the lake by Super one Grocery store. Good to clear some northerns out of there.Perfect size for pickling. Go to the left bay out from the sand beach right off of the little point. drops quickly to 30 ft. Also try shingobee bay. May be tough getting out there on the big lake though. good luck

      I've run an fl12 for six years now, occasionally it gets noisy but has been doing the job. Last year on lotw we had 4 vexilars going in a small area and even with the different interference settings I got feedback. One guy had a hummingbird 55 ice and had zero issues even when his was shut off still had issues. Maybe when I'm done with school I'll upgrade to something with a GPS and lake map

      Have to say it. I don't believe there is "A BEST" unit out there. Just about all of them will suit someone's needs depending on how you use them and what you expect from them. If funds are not a limitation I would recommend looking at the Garmin Ice units with Panoptix or now you can adapt Livescope to the ice. Lots of Panoptix videos out there, but Livescope is new to the ice and the open water videos are amazing. Love mine. Sold all my flashers, my LX 6 and Helix units. My opinion for what it's worth.

      Yep I've been seeing it almost daily since Friday on the south end of the bay. Getting me excited! Time to winterize the lund. It was a good run again this year!

      Omg @Parmer I totally forgot about the Zoom, tells ya' how far my mind is from ice season yet. I do use it, but not whole lot, usally for perch fishing. Most of my Walleye are caught shallow.  
    • Parmer
      All I use is an fl8. I have had it like 16 years.  I guess I don't really believe in the zoom and all that stuff.  Think the fl8 reads fish pretty good.  And I hardly get any interference like my buddies, with there fancy Marcum's lol.

      First fish today was a big fat grey 30 incher, so as a guide the pressure was off right away. Steady action spot locked jigging in 30 feet of water with frozen shiners. By noon we needed 1 Sauger and one Walleye. At 3pm we got a nice Walleye so we quit at 3:30 one Sauger short. It was still pretty windy this morning but from the SW so fishing wasnt too tough. Had to toss the anchor at 2:30 the 3 batteries in the Terrova were spent, thats how windy it was this morning. Here are the pics

      NW is not good at Long Point(I dont know where it is good on this end of the lake.)  SW, WSW and S can blow pretty good without much damage.   Keep your fingers crossed and good luck

      Hey thanks for the help anyfish2! Would you have a wild guess on how many acres the lake is?
    • ANYFISH2
      Not exact on the Max depth.  Can on occasions, winterkill, although not often.   I have fished it numerous times as I know a couple home owners there.   There are are crappie, bluegill, bass, pike, and the lake owners stock some walleyes as well(they have permits to do so).
