Just got back from Leech and the fishing was yet again AMAZING!!!!! 4 man limit of perch, walleye and northern pike, and Jake at Bailey's Resort took care of us. Thanks again to Bailey's for another awesome week in August. Great weather, fish coming in all different ways and top notch hospitality again. Already planning for next year with my dad, bro-in-law and his dad. We mainly fished the north half of Walker bay with cranks in 4-8 fow in weeds, but also on sand and rock. Literally caught fish on every color crank we used. Salmos, shad raps, and flicker shads longlined in the prop wash. We fished 2 evenings with bait rigs. 9' snells and leeches in 18-26 fow. Awesome array of year classes from 10-27" fish. in 5 hours on Monday and Tuesday evening we caught and mostly released 35+ fish including back to back 24.5" and 26.5" fish. We just couldn't leave the crank bite though later in the week, we caught limits of 13-18" walleyes and some really nice pike with 2 fish in the 36-38" class while cranking perch, even a small spotted musky. The rock bass were super aggressive too as we caught over 60 during the week with some 2# fish. Never kept a perch under 8 inches and got into some 11 and 12 inch hogs on thursday and friday.
Overall for the week we boated 800+ perch, 60+ walleye, 60+ rock bass, 25+ pike and 1 musky. Only fish 1 night after dark for an hour and a half with only 3 rock bass to show for it, but basically fished 2-3 hours mid day and 2-3 hours afternoons and evenings the second half of Monday thru Friday. Fishing is good and getting better so get out there! Every year I'm in awe at this tremendous fishery
Can't wait till next year, and thanks everyone for the informative reports.
