Leech Lk./Tulibee/WhiteFish Laws???

Recommended Posts

captkev

My family is headed up to leech on sunday, My brother asked me a question last night that I did'nt have the anwser to, in the 2001 fishing regs, the white fish limit is 25 on the leech Lk indian res. Is a tulibee and a white fish the same thing??? I told him not to worry about it, If I bring home 6-8 fish I'll be happy, What would I do with 25. Just to be on the safe side I said I check for him. Thanks for any help on this. grin.gif

captkev,tullibees and whitefish are two different fish.generally whitefish run much larger than tullibees.The whitefish that we have caught were running between 4 and 8 pounds. there is some color variation between the two, and I beleve the whitefish's mouth has an underbite and the tullibee's mouth has an overbite. Maybe someone else has more information than that. good luck, mallard

Hay Mallard, I talked to one of the oldtimers at the bar to-night and he said all of the Tullibees in leech are wormie!...?<BR>He also said the whitefish are O-kay. <P>Is there any truth to this or is this just a folk lore....? I've been doing my home work on this, and don't wish to catch a bunch of wormie fish, I'm going to Leech on sunday regardless and wish to catch something to eat, not to feed to the birds, can you tell me if there is any truth to this? I guess no-matter what I'll be cleaning a few on the lake to be shure.

We have been fishing tulibees on Leech for many years and within the last five years we have noticed alot more fish with worms.The worms are very difficult to see if all you do is gut them. That is why we always split them in half and inspect them carefully. Usually the worms are either by the backbone or in between the rib bones. We've found that about one in every ten has worms, maybe more.

Thanks oscar for the tip. I'll be looking closely. has anybody been getting any perch? I'd kind of like to make a day of it, maybe a few tullibee's in the a.m. and then work on some perch?

We found 3 fish with white worms along the backbone neer the tail end. thats not too bad, I've seen perch in some lakes that looked ready to explode, with them white worms in the gills and along the tail. give me the creeps frown.gif just thinking about it.

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.

      I bought a used boat and I had the dealer install my Lowrance HDS on the dash. There was already two Lowrance units that came with the Boat. One mounted in the bow and the other in the dash. So when the dealer installed my HDS, the networked it to the older unit from the dash. My sonar on the HDS would only work if the dash unit was on. I really don’t know the advantages of doing this?  Anyways, this past weekend I landed the boat and the dash unit wouldn’t power up. I checked and I did have power going to the unit. Hence no sonar. I had to go old school and caught 10 eyes! Lol so my question is how do I bypass the network so I can just run the HDS? Thanks!

      Have you tried cleaning it? I have found more often than not when someone tells me their foot pedal isn't working right, I can take it apart, clean it up, lubricate it, and everything works again. If you try this, avoid grease or oil because dirt collects. I used WD-40 and it seemed to work well.
