Fishing Discussion / First timer - looking for some clues...lol
« Last post by baitfish on Today at 01:32:33 AM »
Hey All,

New to the lake, first time heading up this weekend. Too bad we have a heavy amount of rain coming.

Read a bunch of posts, amazing stories and reports? Headed to dead bear bay for weekend, anyone familiar with this area? Any maps/locations to spend some time jigging? Looking for walleye and lakers...

It appears there is a lifetime of fishing to be had on this lake.

Any tips will help get me started, as this lake is spectacularly big!!!

Thanks

I always get my leeches at Trout Lake . To keep them alive I just put them in a leech lodge filled 3/4 with water with a bit of lettuce an put in the fridge. Use bottled water instead of tap water ( must ) and change the water every couple of days. I am able to keep leeches alive and well all summer and into October.

Doesn't matter if you like 'em - the walleye like 'em! The leeches at Kipawa Bait that we've bought have been decent size. Keep 'em in a cooler w/ a block of ice, change water every couple days. Ask Corina at the bait shop & she'll give you the details.

I read there can be anywhere from 12 to 30 doz depending on the size 12 doz if the really large to 30 doz for small - most probably will be somewhere around 20 doz average.

Hope this is not a stupid question but how many leeches are in a pound of say the ones you would get at Kipawa bait?  I have never used them before so not sure if I want to spend $70 for something I don't like.  Maybe I will just get a few dozen...  What do you keep them in while at camp on boat?  I am just starting to Google about using leeches today.. my trip starts in 4 days!!

Steve,

The trip will be a great success for these few reasons:

  • Beer taste better in Kipawa then anywhere I've ever drank it
  • Hangin with your bro's for a week anywhere, let alone Kipawa rocks!
  • If a newb like me can catch 20+ walleye a day, you're golden
  • Fish early, Fish late and relax in between
  • If one leech ain't getting business done, put on a second
  • Did I mention Beer?

Hodgey
