Thanks! That's KIND OF LIKE the way it is around Park Rapids... I have fished that area for over 50-years, one week at a time (on our family vacations). Little Mantrap, Spider, etc. most are good lakes.
Some years/lakes were better than others of course. But, not being able to "move" once we're there - due to using the resort's boat - I hate to go try an "unknown" lake and blow a week's vacation (and the associated $$$). If you know of A (smaller-than-Leech) LAKE
(with a resort) that should have been on that list, I'm all ears!!
I'd only be visiting that lake once a year, so I'm
not going to fish it out. And yet, I know that most don't want to give up their "best lake" on a forum for the whole world to see either. So if you have a recommendation, you could send me a PM...
Still, I AM surprised that Leech wasn't on there! I DVR a lot of the fishing shows to watch later. Last November (show airing), Roland Martin had a show, fishing for bass, on Leech! They were frog-fishing the wild rice... and he caught some NICE bass! At the end of that episode, he had kind of a "P.S." segment. After the regular taping, he caught a 7lb.+ bass!!! I've been wantin' to go there (Leech) ever since... but I'm going to have to get a BIGGER boat! <lol>
