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.

    • Yah - great looking decoys! MJ - I'm just letting you know I'm breaking into your house and stealing your spear rack.  And mount. I found a rickety old 5 tine when I cleaned out the garage.  I might give it a try this season.
    • I can't identify any of those for sure, and certainly wouldn't recommend eating any of them.  The first pic might be some older honey mushrooms, but it's pretty tough to tell.  I've got about 8 mushrooms that I can positively id.  Beyond that, it's just not worth being wrong.  There are still some fresh hen of the woods mushrooms around the metro if you get out into some oak woods.  You can find them around the base of big mature oaks and they are pretty easy to identify.  Found about 20 on Wednesday.  Many were a little old, but was able to take 4 nice ones home.  Here's a pic of one that I left behind.
    • I'm putting it on my calendar.  Don't forget the Nord Lord trophy since it has a new home to go to. 
    • Detroit News breaks 143 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson.   The endorsement is the first time in the paper’s 143-year history it has endorsed someone other than the Republican Party’s nominee. http://www.breitbart.com/news/detroit-news-breaks-tradition-endorses-libertarian-gary-johnson/  
    • Kind of like Trump did Monday night.
    • Gets on a bunch of talk shows. Jumps another 5 points in the polls.. This just ain't working the way it's supposed to...
    • Looks like it's unanimous then. Good thing my vote goes to Hillary since it seems everyone thinks she is the best person for the job.
    • In your situation I'd try to be standing around the time you expect the deer to show up since it sounds like your upper body will have branch cover but not lose drawing ability. I usually set up off to the side and a little behind the tree from the direction I expect the deer to come from.  That way I get the full benefit of the cover of the tree I'm in. I stand a lot though; I rarely sit.  My ears tell me quite a bit but I'm usually looking around that tree all the time and my body is close to it.  I seem to be able to get away with quite a bit of movement and am rarely at 15 feet or higher.
