Leeh Lake Smallmouths?


Recommended Posts

I have owned a lake home on Leech for 28 years and have never caught a smallmouth yet I hear people say that they are in the lake - is it true?

I grew up fishing Leech and have never seen or heard of one.

I'd second what Chris said. Sure their might be a few (I've never accidently caught one myself) but you'd be better off picking a different lake if you're going to fish them.

I have been going to a resort on Benedict Lake every summer for the last 23 years. Once, a guy staying at the resort brought in about a 3 pound smallie he caught while fishing for walleyes. Never saw one before this, never saw one after. But if they are in Benedict... they are probably in the big lake as well.

the key to the fish on Benedict is that in 23 years you saw one smalley brought in. We have a cabin on a small lake by Benedict and in 37 years I've caught one musky on the lake. If I want to fish muskies I pick a different lake where their is a substantial fishable population. Benedict is a beautful lake though.

leechlake, in a week and a half I will be up at Benedict again. I can't wait. I couldn't agree more about it being a beautiful lake. The fishing is always outstanding as well. If you want to chat about species/locations we should do that through email. Contact me at [email protected] Big walleyes and muskies are my main prospect, but I also spend a few days chasing panfish as well.

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      Welcome to the forum. Buying clothing and gear for outdoor activities is part of the fun! 🙂

      I'm willing to buy this white shirt. It will look awesome with the juicewrld pants.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
