Leech Ice today
Ice update for leech lake Walker, Mn. I just returned from Walker and was surprised to see open water up to Breezy Pt. Walker bay at the park has open water. With the wind today I say Ice out for leech will Tues night or Wed morning. On that note we lost a couple weeks of Ice fishing because of the warm weather but gained a month or more of open water fishing. For me thats great because I put off getting the boat ready and rods till the last minute.
I have some crappie Lakes near walker Ill now have time to fish before the Walleye opener. Nothing more fun then a bobber fishing panfish in the spring its just relaxing. Also a Rainy river trip and out to SD river fishing in a boat!!
I have decided to upgrade my electronics this year before the summer guiding season with LOA. I put an HDS8 with LSS on the dash and put my LCX27C color unit next to it. The HDS8 will run sonar and Si an Di the 27C will just show my Map. Ill also be adding a I pilot to my terrova 80lb motor just to make sure I have all my bases covered. Gee do we really need all this!!! if nothing else it gives you more confidence whats below and better boat control for days when the fishing is tuff.
The LLWT is in June I just got a call from Char at the Chamber I was on the short list now Im in with a new partner Brian Morris. Hope to do well with this great fisherman usually fish with my Son which I really enjoy but he's too busy this year.
Good Fishing Everyone!!
