9/30/12 Leech Lake Night Bite Marble 'eyes
We trolled for five hours this weekend and ended up with 18 fish with 10 being keepers (only kept 7). Amazingly no big fish, biggest were 24". Quite a few at 12"-16". Trolling Live Target Smelt or Minnow Raps in 12 f.o.w. was the ticket. Going slow (1.2-1.4) while pumping the rod seemed to get the most bites. Fishing seemed to get better into the wee hours but, a night owl I am not.
