Resorts on Leech Lake - Ice Fishing

Recommended Posts

tank1

I'm looking for some help on possible resorts to stay at on Leech Lake for ice fishing in February 2008. There will be 6-8 of us and we'll be bringing our own portables so we won't need to rent any shacks. Thanks for any help,

Tank1

There is a brand new resort on Leech that is opening up for the fishing opener, Trapper's Landing Lodge. I have heard they are going to be open year around. They also have a banner on this forum.

Good Luck

Isn't this the old Merritt Resort/Huddles that was sold last year to the development group? Are they going to continue to operate it as a resort as they develop the property? Is the old Merritt Lodge going to continue as a restaurant?

225330,

You are correct, we purchased what was the Old Merit Lodge last spring with the intentions of developing it into a more up to date fully functional family resort. We will be re-opening Margarita Mulligans under a different name, The Beach Fire Grill with a different menu. We will still have the Kareoke on Saturday nights and all the other fun stuff plus more. The restaurant is certainly open to the public.

As for the developement, we have 6 Lakehome style rental units up and will be completed around opener. We have just broke ground on 2 more in the past few days. What we are building is available to the general public for both ownership and rental. We share off each unit down to the 6th of a share and rent it out when not in use, splitting the income with the owner. We started this over on the North Shore and it has been a huge deal for us. Alot of people find this a great alternative to purchasing a cabin being it comes without the headaches of maintenance, dock removal, yard work etc.. Keep an eye on the banner on the Leech Page for deals and promotions.

Welcome to Leech.

A healthy resort community contributes to the economic diversity of our area. Offering a mix of ownership and rentals maintains the visitor base while increasing the investment in the tax base. The alternative, converting a resort to lots for sale, decreases economic diversity.

Our family has spent two-weeks-at-a-time on Leech for many years. Those cumulative two weeks were what we looked forward to all year. The love of those visits at the family cabin is what finally convinced us to buy our own “place up north”. I hope your owners and guests enjoy Leech as much as we do.

We are still two weeks at a time, only more frequently. We look forward to boating to the Beach Fire Grill after a day on the water.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
    • jigging-matt
      Nice pics.  Can't wait to get out this weekend and give it a try.
