leech traps

i thought i would post these pictures of my leech trap

i put them in sloughs in the spring for bait for walleye,it's pretty simple just a plastic tobacco can with holes drilled in it,put a piece of meat in it like fish then put a rock in it too make it sink and a line to pull it in put it out late evening and harvest in very early in the morning ,put leeches in a old fridge in the garage and change water once a week or just catch them when you need them its fun and some of the best bait i ever used

Excellent!!!

Leeches are my absolute favorite live bait!


I don't see any reason why that wouldn't work in the slack water areas of the river by me...thanks

As some of you know, you probably shouldn't get me started on this subject...I have used these types of traps and have found them to be less affective, then the good old tin coffee can. I made 75 of them last weekend. I will post some pictures tomorrow...The tin can seem to sink better and also seem to atract more leeches, not sure what is. I think it has to do with the white of the can letting in more light then the tin one.

Darth, although there is probably leeches in the river if there is any type of fish at all it will be hard to catch numbers of leeches...The best place to try is a Pond, slough or dugout that has snails...This is all the info I will give out tonight...It has been a challenge of mine to find out what makes a good leech pond and I think I have it almost narrowed down.
P.S. You also want to find a pond that has had complete winter kill with its aquatic species!
Heres a question for all you MODers out here...How do leeches get into to ponds?
