Default Leech Lake

Heading up to Leech next Wednesday, staying with a friend for the first couple of days.

Family is coming up on the following Saturday

Been staying at Brindley's for about the last ten years, great place, great people

Been checking the forum here along with other forums

Anybody heard anything special? Sounds like the fishing has been going pretty well except for a few days when the mayflies were hatching

Will let you know how we did when I return

Default Update

Just got back from our annual Lech Lake trip

Weather started out bad (53 degrees with 20 mph wind) but thens ettled down into the 70's with minimal rain

Fishing was great last year and it's continued on

Walleye fishing was oustanding along with a large number of good sized northerns

As usual the fishing hot spots have changed along with what to use and how to use it

Went out with a friend that's a guide and tryed a couple of the local techniques...slip bobbers, jigs on the humps, bottom bouncing and drifting leeches

All worked and I added some new ideas to my fishing

Largest fish was a 26" walleye my daughter caught, my son lost what we think was a fairly large muskie. Hit a shad rap while trolling and pulled into a cabbage patch and broke the line after about 10 minutes of not being able to move it

Stayed again at Brindley's, great place and great staff

Be able to share more if anyone is heading up or thinking about it for next year
