Tulibees and White Fish

7 posts in this topic

Hey was wondering if anybody has been to Leech Lake for tulibees yet and if they are biting. Haven't fished them in about 7 years and I have next Friday off. I know it is early but it is my b-day and the only time I would be able to go.

Were they a decent size? I always heard they were smaller on Mille Lacs. That was many years ago though.

Never caught a Tullibee until last fall during whitefish gill net season. A friend and I put (2) 100 foot nets out and netted around 100 Tullibee in 12 days.

We smoked 'em up and they taste pretty good. Real close to a smoked Salmon.

I like them alot smoked but they are not a salmon. Still wondering if anybody has tried Leech yet? Also wondering if one color is better than another.

Well I heard that most of them died off in Leech. Was wondering if anybody has fished Mille Lacs for them and where, and how many??

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
