Leech Lake Fishing Guide Walleye Report
The 2012 Minnesota Fishing Opener was a memorable one for me. This was the first year my Father didn't get to join me in the boat. All though I know he was there in spirit with each hook set and high five we shared in the boat.
After talking with many anglers it sounded like the bite on the traditional opener spots wasn't going strong. For example the Pine Point, Duck Point, Goose Flats ect but you many ask why. I don't think it's because the fish weren't there but with a combination of hundreds of boats, shallow water, and not much wind makes it tough to get on a school of feeding fish as the fish tend to get scattered with all of the commotion. Wind is a key element to spots like those. Cabbage walleyes seem to be less effected by no wind so keep that in mind while out fishing. We also found some super jumbo perch mixed in with the walleyes so that is always a bonus!
Other areas on Leech like 5 mile, Sugar, and Battle points seem to also produce more fish. I think that's because of the west wind we had. Still a jig and shiner seemed to be the common producer. I also heard of guys catching fish trolling cranks at night.
I hope that everyone enjoyed the 2012 MN Fishing Opener with family and friends!
Thanks to my brother Joe for spending a special day with me!
