Hey guys and gals, I don't plug anyone or any business unless the product is real good and it will somehow give you and "edge". As you know, getting good leeches south of Minnesota can be a difficult task. I wanted to try to take some to Arkansas in a few days. I found this site on the internet http://www.jewelloutdoors.com/livebait.html
They ship leeches across the country, but prefer to send them no further south than Ill. or Indiana. At noon, yesterday, I ordered a pound of large leeches from Mark, the owner of the company. At 1:30pm today, they were on my doorstep. Best of all the price was reduced to $23 a pound,,PLUS free shipping. Unbelievable!!! THe leeches are great size, alive and very healthy. I can't wait to post the pics of the walleyes I catch with these leeches. Highly recommended,

Col Ron

Leaving for my sis's campground lakes near Dixon tonite and we will definitely be using leeches!

They are, what Sven calls, the 'wonder bait'.

Back onto leeches. It is nice to know you can get quality bait here. I know down on Wolf Lake in Whiting, Indiana, the walleye bite is on. Best bait, yep, leeches, the local bait shop sells them (imported of course) for $30 a pound for Mediums. ff, Wolf is hot right now, jump off the Sky Way and you are right there.

Sounds great, now if I could only fit it in. Other than Cass, I've only been on the water once so far this year. Hard to believe. But, lots of unforseen things popping up. Hoping to get out this week. Have to wait and see.

5 of us caught 46 gills, cats, and LMB this weekend...all small so we only kept 5 gills and 3 cats.

We caught 23 LMB on Sat alone in the rain...miserable, but fun.
Yep, leeches outproduced crawlers by far.

Col,

The problem with Wolf is that the smell can burn the hair out of your nose.

You remember the old days too!!! It is actually very clean now. I remember back in the 50's or 60's, they found a body, cut up and nicely disposed of inside of one of the 55 gallon drums that they used for the swimming markers. Never swam there again.
