GEM Club - LEECH LAKE TRIP - OCT 3rd to 6th

Recommended Posts

Guest

We at GEM Fishing Camp and Club do an annual fall fishing trip to Leech Lake. If anyone is interested in attending, go to www.gemfishing.org and contact Don Lincoln or Dave Lindmark. Both our phone numbers and e-mails are on the gemfishing web page.

The FALL BITE on Leech at this time of year is usually PHENOMENOL. We stay in the dorms of church camp on Boy Lake (about 8 miles from Leech). Cost for food and lodging (thurs fri and sat nights) is $80 for adults and $40 for those under 18.

If you have room for one kid or one kid and one adult in your boat, we are in need of more available seats in boats. The kids who attend this event are 15, 16 and 17 year olds who have fished with us for 3 to 5 years and have proven to us that they can handle their own tackle, bait, and whatever they catch. Also they have proven that they can handle 8 hours on the big lake when the water is rough. The younger/less experienced kids go on one day trips with us and have to work their way up to these 3 day and 4 day trips, so this one requires less work as far as assisting the others who may be in your boat.

How can you get in on such a great deal?

Well as my original post said:

There are several guys in camp who make this trip every year, and they are really accommodating at letting everyone in camp know where the best bite is happening when/if they find it (for the last 4 years in a row it has been WHEN, Not IF).

Word is that the walleyes are just stacked thick on all the usual spots, and they just have not started biting yet.
It is gettting down in the 20s a few nites this week, they should be going nuts soon!

    • tracked down some quick numbers; supposedly the heater draw at 7 amps, and that would be the main appliance to be ran at night +-1.5 hour total run time during a 8 hour sleep period; i should have plenty of power on the battery!
       
    • This got me curious, so I checked my profile and sure enough, I'm coming up on 10 years myself on 12/30.  However, over those 10 years I've posted WAY less topless selfies than Leech has!
    • ikr, Duff started some noise a while back but never happened? 😒
    • awesome thanks guys; found out my battery has 88 amp hours; I'll look into my heater, and radio, not sure what the LED lights are, i'll try to look there too;   how long do your guys usually last before in need of a genny?
    • You might be right.  The only common denominator between all of the kickers that have encountered major issues while with the Vikings is Priefer.  He has built the Special Teams unit into a Special Needs unit.  How they can under preform every year and break down at the most critical times and it not come back on Priefer is really mind boggling.  
    • Congrats whippersnapper.   When are you going to get your wings and throw a get together?👈👈☝️👍😁❤😁
    • Some radio's can be really power hungry. I'd just use a simple bluetooth speaker or some sort of standalone boom box of sorts (for example my makita radio can run for around 50 hours on a single battery). If your lights are not already switch them over to LED. Both of these are easily done to reduce current draw. If you search amazon you can also buy and install PWM led dimmers on all your lights, only turn them up as bright as needed. The great thing about PWM is it reduces your current draw unlike resistor based dimmers of past. Lastly I would take an actual reading at the battery and right where its wired (your results should be very close) when your alarm goes off. You may have a bad Co/lp alarm or the following issues that increase resistance to your alarm in turn dropping the voltage it sees: poor connections, too small of gauge wiring, excessive wire length.
    • There's nothing amusing, or even confusing as to why it happens.  It would be more confusing if outdoorsmen didn't overharvest.  Look no further than Harden's Tragedy of the Commons.       There's a near perfect correlation with the amount of free public resources and the inferior quality of those resources.  This is why reservations are largely wilderness ghettos.  It's why Red Lake collapsed.  The student loan bubble.  This is also why urban ghettos are looted every time there is a riot.  Subsidized housing, drinking water, livestock farming etc.     When people aren't responsible for the effects their actions have on the system they're impacting, those systems will fail.  But hey, keep helping the state buy up all the land and monopolize the lakes.  Maybe someday enough of that insanity will yield a different result.  
    • First off, you need to figure out you amp loading.... how many amps does your furnace take, lights, radio etc. and how long do they run. That should give you your amp hr rating. Then match your battery requirement up with the right amount of amp hours.  Not all batteries are created equal based on size. For example, a group 27 can range from 60-100 amp hrs.    Here is a good site for calculating battery requirements https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/calculator-sizing-a-battery-to-a-load.html
