Guided Winter Ice Fishing on Leech Lake

Hey Guys,

I hope that everyone is getting the itchy feeling to catch a fish through the ice like I am. We have been working very hard at LOA to get ready for this season. We are very excited to be working with some of the top brands in the outdoor industry like Clam Outdoors and Vexilar. Not only do we get to work with them you get to use their products when you go fishing with us.

At LOA we are going to provide guided ice fishing trips on Leech Lake, Lake Mille Lacs, Gull Lake, Brainerd Lakes Area, and so many more. Don't forget to check out the giant pike adventure in March. Not only are we going to cover a large area we are also excited to provide a wide variety of ice fishing packages. We will have permanent fish house rentals on Leech Lake that we can package with Chase on the Lake Resort or we are going to be offering several types of portable ice fishing packages. If you haven't experienced portable ice fishing this is something you should have on your bucket list.

The Ultimate in Ice Fishing Packages

Since the age of 4, I have spent most of my winters on ice, Artificial that is, the kind that requires a Zamboni every 20 minutes. This winter will be 100% natural baby! No pucks to chase, but lots of fish. I am SO pumped to get it started!

Leisure Outdoor Adventures is ready too! We have been working with all of our Partners to make sure we are ready to rock!

Lace up the boots and break out the IceArmor, it's time to test your ice fishing skills. Through our quest for the ultimate winter fishing experience, we have developed several exciting ice fishing packages. From fully guided portable excursions, like hand to hand combat with monster pike on Lake of the Woods, to filling the buckets with jumbo perch out of our beautiful Ice Castle permanent fish-house on Leech Lake. We have something for everyone.

Check out these packages and more at Leisure Outdoor Adventures Ice Fishing Packages

We'll see you on the ice!

Leech Lake fishing forecast for 2012

L e e c h L a k e
Above-average year classes of walleye produced during 2005-2008 quickly led to marked
improvements in walleye fishing. Many of these fish are approaching the 18 to 26” protected slot
limit and, although anglers will not be able to harvest these fish, they will continue to provide
excellent catch-and-release opportunities. The possession limit on Leech Lake is 4 walleye with
one longer than 26.0” allowed in possession; all walleye between 18.0-26.0 inches long must be
immediately returned to the water.
Creel survey statistics collected during 2008-2010 documented excellent walleye fishing. Walleye
ranging in length from 5 to 30 inches were reported during the 2010 survey; about 47% of
walleye caught were 18 inches or longer. At the beginning of the 2011 season, walleye produced
during 2006 will be approximately 15-19” long, 2007 fish will be 13-17” long, and 2008 fish will
be 11-14” long. Another good fishing season is expected and a creel survey is again scheduled
during 2011.
Quality fishing opportunities for species other than walleye abound. Leech Lake supports
excellent northern pike and muskellunge populations; nearly one third of pike caught by anglers
during 2010 were 24” or larger and muskellunge nearing 50” were also reported. Recent
improvements in the yellow perch population have led increased perch harvest, with fish up to
13 inches long fairly common in angler’s bags. Exceptional sunfish, black crappie, and largemouth
bass fishing consisting of quality-sized fish can be found in most major portions of the lake, with
the bite for these species typically best during May and June
