Gull lake and Leech Lake Multi Species Fishing Report

Chase on the Lake Resort and Spa

Hawg Belly WalleyeThis past week brought cooler temps to Minnesota. The slight drop in water temp really helped with the walleye fishing on Leech Lake!The past week had me on leech for two different walleye trips. The first was for Monster Walleye and the 2nd was for keeper fish for dinner!
Walleyes on the main lake seem to be the most consistent thing going right now. Walleyes on the rocks seem to prefer spinners with crawlers and leeches moving fairly fast in the 1-1.5mph range. Best colors for the blades are gold, Chartreuse, and Green. Rig the spinners behind 1.5 oz bottom bouncers and start moving. Fish this week preferred a slight jigging motion to the spinner, often hitting it while the anglers were dropping the rod tip back towards the fish.
Steamboat bay was the best thing going early in the week with limits of fish coming from 9-11ft of water on the windward side of shoreline points. Sand grass is well developed and the fish are feeding on crayfish. Bouncers or split shot rigs work well in these area's because of the amount of weeds on the bottom. A standard slip sinker will keep you frustrated with constant weeds. For bait, crawlers and leeches are working here too. Same rigs as described for the rocks are what we used Monday to catch a beautiful limit of leech lake walleyes for a fish fry later on. Fishing on leech is good and you can expect to have plenty of action with the Leisure Outdoor Adventure Team.

Another Limit for our Chase on the lake guests.

Gull Lake Minnesota
I had a chance to take a crew out on Gull Lake yesterday for a Multi Species "Action Trip". The fish were on fire down on the south end of the lake. Bass, Northern Pike and pan fish were biting! In the course of 6hrs on the water, our crew caught and released over a 100 fish of various species. There's nothing special about our technique here. Find a weed line near deeper water, mark a fish or two, and drop a minnow or cast a jig worm into the deep weed edge. The action is fun and non stop action. If anyone is looking for a day of NON STOP action, this is it! Get Hooked and and wore out with Leisure Outdoor Adventures on Gull.
