I have been on Leech a bunch the last couple weeks and am happy to report that the walleyes (both eaters and 20+ inch) have been showing themselves with more consistency of late. Typically, this time of year, we will catch them on deeper humps in Walker Bay but that bite has been very inconsistent. Shoreline breaks and underwater points have been the most consistent over the last 2 weeks. Lindy rigging creek chubs or redtails has produced as have jigs with minnows. A sleeper tactic can be a lindy rig with a crawler as well. Key depths have varied depending on what the wind is doing. If you have wind crashing into a shoreline, they can be as shallow as 11-14; if there is no wind, they can slide out to 18-25 feet of water. The underwater points that I have been using, the fish have been deeper, 25-35 feet of water. The best thing about this bite is it will only get BETTER!! I know it is tough to get away in the fall, especially mid-week but if you can, get up to Leech. We can get great mid-week deals in the fall for rooms at the Chase and the BIG walleyes are going to go on the chew with vengance!
