Just got off the ice myself for a short break. Not much water on the ice. When the water is flowing down the holes that's a good sign from where I come from. Once the lake "pops" as I would call it the ice is high and dry. We are on our way to that point as I type this. The ice is fine today. Cant say for the next couple days but I suspect it will be fine. No snow left in Walker Bay and minimal water. The access areas may get bad but as of now they are no problem. Ice seems to be about 24+ inches and very little soft stuff on top. The next couple hours might soften up the top couple inches but that's about it. No worries right now. Wheeler travel would be fine too but I have been driving the truck.

Oh...fishing for perch is good and will likely get better!

It's all right Bigfatber. I guess I should know better. After one of the local seagulls started following my tracks a couple winters ago the writing is on the wall. These areas will get punished soon enough. Go get yours before it's over. I just cannot post the stuff. Good luck!

Snidely is a shifty Canadian character... I would have to keep a close eye on him! You gotta get up and fish for some of these giants sometime. Conditions should be good for another month or more unless Mother Nature keeps up with this warm weather.

This has come back to bite me before....but... We don't see too many monster crappie reports anymore. Hmmm. There are still huge crappies available in our state and I would argue that the largest fish are in the border country of northern MN. Yes Minnesota, not Canada. Primarily because it is a huge maze of water and most of it is not easily accessible even for todays modern anglers who must tote tub loads of technology. These waters stretch from Rainy Lake to places much farther east. I would love to go into details about possible locations and tactics but I really just wanted to share a couple recent photos since Chris63 was asking for them. I would say this...don't ever stop thinking outside the box and trying new water. I am sure there a few more places in MN where true 14 to 17 inch crappies exist. Large bodies of water and/or connected systems provide at least some protection from angling pressure just because they can be so vast. The search for the tiny little lake in the woods that nobody else knows about is fun but there are not many of those left. I would look to larger waters that have a reputation for being tough to fish. I particularly like the lake that people say has large fish in it but you can never seem to locate 'em! You may get skunked 8 times but the 9th time...!! Good luck out there. Thanks to the guys who have shared these beauties with me over the years! Good to see you too Jimmy B! Back to Leech and the surrounding area for one more week of walleye action.

Busdrivers33 is right on...in fact I saw him walking near the breaker by the Stoney Point access. I was the guy on the snow machine talking with you.

Anyway, that heave has been changing and moving all year. Risky play to drive across it. It may move and/or open and you won't be able to drive back. IFISH2...depends on what you are after. The walleye bite has been hit and miss, but if you put in your time you should get a few. I have had excellent walleye action on Leech during late February. The perch bite is picking up and has been good on mid depth flats. You will have to sort through some smaller fish but you can get some very nice fish here right now. Horseshoe Bay has easy access to some good walleye spots and the tullibee/whitefish bite was very good in the deeper water over the weekend. Great action during the day and Whitefish is excellent table fare! Pine Point also has easy access as does Trappers Landing...those 3 are your best bets for access to the main lake right now. Get away from the crowds and good luck! Ice is in great shape and travel is fine. It's still pretty rough but other than that travel is easy.

fryldz,

I fish for a living and I do use some Eskimo hubs. I like them overall, but the poles will break. I have some broken ones that need replacing right now. They are not difficult to replace thank goodness.

Might be a good idea. It would be tough on the slides right now unless you have scratchers. Wheelers would be the ticket for mobility. If we get a little snow, your sleds would be great. Some areas are pretty tough to get to with trucks...couple big active breakers out there. Papabear is right...she's rough out there due to frozen slush and old tracks.

Check with Chaz at Boondocks he will shoot you straight. I was there last Saturday and travel was no problem.

Dog gone Chris! I have to pay attention! Sorry, I just saw the msg. Yes, I have been on top of some crappies. Not great numbers but there have been fish to be had. It is rarely a numbers game but when you hit the weather and the other things we cannot control right...it is something to remember! It is coming. Lots of snow and slush may limit travel...but I will not be kept away.

Not much for ice roads on Leech Lake. The best and perhaps the only one goes out of Trappers Landing near Whipholt. Josh does a good job of keeping access open and they have plowed roads leading to productive areas. There are also access points at Pine Point Resort and Walker City Park. Not much for roads but travel is not a big issue right now. Be careful around ice heaves and approach untraveled areas with caution. Most places I have been have 12 to 16 inches of ice. Stoney Point is ugly with heaves right off the shore. I have hammered through it a couple times but I would not recommend it! You can find fish all by yourself if you are willing to pat your dues!
