Mille Lacs Lake
Fishing on Mille Lacs lake continues to be fantastic. I had the opportunity to fish the lake twice this week. Once with my 10 yr old son Hunter, and Father in Law, Cy. The 2nd was on a guide trip with the boys from Graphic Packaging out of Brainerd. We fished the mud and North end sand during these two outings. Both areas are hot. I would say that the north end sand was a bit more consistant for keeper (under 18) inch fish. Tactics varied for the two areas. Leeches and Crawlers on the sand, while spinners with crawlers seemed to be preferred out on the mud. The sand bite was best in 22-24ft. The mud bite was going on the edges of the flats in 24-29 ft of water.

Leech Lake,
Had a chance to get back up on leech again yesterday for a trip with our Website Crew, Shane and Luke. These guys were a blast to have in the boat. We had a long day on the water (13 hours). The day went fast though with fantastic fishing. We boated 4 fish over the 26" protected slot and 8 keeper fish with several fish in the slot over 22 inches.
The Walker Bay fish continue to like minnows on lindy rigs in 22-25 ft of water while the lake fish are showing preference to crawlers. I have been using 1 and 1/2 oz bouncers to keep the rigs close to the boat and out of the rocks. This method is effective to cover water quickly. Once a school of walleyes have been located, stay on them with short passes back and forth. This method has been good to find somewhat scattered fish. On the main lake walleyes have been in the weeds, on the rocks, and in-between. Big pike are being caught in Walkerbay suspended on and off deep shoreline breaks. These fish can be targeted trolling live bait or with crankbaits in 25-30 ft of water.
