Leech Lake Fishing Report
As of today, fishing remains Rock Solid on Leech Lake. I have been on the lake for the past three days pulling Jolly Roger spinners. With light and variable winds the most consistent action has been coming from mid lake Rock structures such as Submarine, Annex, Big Rock, and The rocks around Pelican Island. Focus on the windward edges in 14-18 ft with wind. Shallow rock clumps in 12-14 ft are better on calm days. Copper and Gold color blades with half a crawler behind 2-3 oz bouncers trolled at .8-1.3 mph have been the most consistent patterns. Cabbage flats are holding walleye in 7-12 ft. Steamboat, Sucker, and Portage bay points and weed flats have been holding fish all year. Trolling cranks in the low light periods and or slip bobbering a leech can be rewarding this time of year. Bigger Walleye and above average Pike have been biting in Walker Bay. Bumps topping out in 22-30 ft of water are holding fish. Best presentations seam to be light Pike suckers or leeches.
