The report last week was that the bite was unusually shallow for the water temp being so warm. If there is an ample chop on the water, don't be afraid to pull some cranks at night.

BigBadOzzy...

I will be staying on Leech for the first time also starting the 17th -20th. The place I am staying at said the eye's were biting between Goose Island and the Hardwoods. I have never been to Leech so that is all I know..good luck and stay in touch..I run a 18ft full windshield Alumacraft..if you see me, although your chances at the Lotto might be better..ha.

head east s-east from big hardwood till you find the drop off and work that by drifting with jigs and shinners or fatheads

up or down it dont matter the fish will be there

walleyes,pike and perch use lime green fireballs @ stingers

also try between goose island and pine point same rigs

good luck guys

the drop starts at 9ft and drops to15-17ft

the flat between goose and pine varies 6 to12-15ft

just find a good wind and drift

if the lake goes flat try the drops and humps on the north end of Walker bay

good luck and post how you do

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      well I never?  Here's another. May have to give that a try.

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff
