KENORA JUMBO LEECHES

12 posts in this topic

Any bait shops in the Kenora area have jumbo leeches in July?

I had a request via telephone (maybe it was you?) the other day. I called my supplier and they said our leeches simply don't get that big, on average.

There are some 4"ers in some batches, but for the most part our leeches with cooler water, shorter "growing" season are 2-3.5 inches.

Just to set your expectations appropriately, all of the leeches I've purchased in NW Ontario are the equivalent of "lake run" leeches here in the Midwest and are about 2 to 3 times the price. Expect to pay $40 on up for a pound of mixed leeches that range in size from panfish to large.

Good luck!

Spoiler,

Make sure that you confirm with the resort that you will getting the biggest leeches available. We try to get the biggest leeches from our supplier and we sill end up with tons of 1.5", in our bag of jumbos? For some reason they don't have leeches up here like they do in Minnesota.

I would still buy some from Hemlock, maybe he can sort some of the jumbos and at least you will have a pound or 2 of sure jumbos. I'm sure he could do this for FM member.

Good Luck

Absolutely, with a little heads up, I can personally sort through our leeches and give you the best that I've got....

Let me know.

    •   Stayed home for the 4th this year, was amazed how quiet the cities seemed to be. "Is everybody up north?"
    •   I sure like the sites your old campground kept open for weekenders. Best spots in the campground if you ask me.    
    • so leech, does your campground have festivities functions for there permy site people? ours had a big fish fry on the fourth with a little parade. they do a golfing event to. i heard they finally got some decent playground equipment for kids. there theory was theres fishing. they used to do a pot luck with a theme german, mexican..bleah blah.....but that required work and planning from the owners. took away from the beer drinking! 
    •   I have noticed that trend at seasonal campgrounds too. 20 some years ago when we started camping seasonal sites used to be full of folks 60+ but now it seems that there are a lot of young families in these sites.    The other trend I noticed is that lot rental prices have gone through the roof since then. 
    •   Well in the 12 years we have been at this campground it went from mostly old folks where if your Walker wheel was squeaking someone would run out with a can of WD-40 to stop the noise! Now a lot of young families with kids. Most of the year it's not to bad, but the Holidays can get a little crazy with the golf carts and beer flowing!   I don't let folks bother me much, I have two young grandsons so their in the mix!
    • I have definitely come to the conclusion that on those big 3 day holiday weekends its way more quiet and peaceful if i stay put at home.................even up north. hey i can have a fire and have cocktails at home too!!!!!!! the weekends to go are weekends prior to and after them big weekends!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Pretty much the same on enforcing some of the rules. The 4th was a Zoo and I'm sure the managers head was spinning trying to keep track of who all the kids running belonged too!
    • well it didnt help our family has a cabin up in itasca county and have had it since 1965. the camper took time away from there. granted the camper was 30 minutes from home the cabin 3 1/2 hours but there is agood city block of woods between us and the neighbor.............and we have noone on the other side. i dont mind a little socoilizing but that peace and quiet is right up my ally.   so leech does your park charge extra for additional company not your immediate family? the campground we were at did, but they didnt enforce it fairly. some were forced some got to slide. oh and there were alot of other issues i got fed up with!!!!!!!
    • No ones making fun leech. Just made a statement. I've never seen one like that before. I've seen the hand ones curved, but not the powered one. Guess it could be like the hand one. I could be wrong. Be interested to see if they sold one like that, or someone put a power head on it. I'll let you take over now.
