Leech Lake Walleye and Fishing Report

Stick and move, stick and move is a boxing reference that means, take your shot and move on and this analogy applies to Leech right now.  There are fish being caught, but be sure to move in, catch your fish and move on.  The fish are scattered, using various depths and willing to bite when you find them.  The assortment of presentations that are taking fish are equally as scattered.  While the jig and minnow combo reigns supreme, fish are being taking on a Live Bait Rig tipped with a minnow or crawler.  The LOA Guide Team jig of choice has been the new Kenkatch Tackle 3d eye jig and long shank jigs.  Finding good quality minnows will be a challenge so be willing to use shiners (both spottails and goldys work) and also rainbows as well.  Points to try include, Pine, Ottertail and the Hardwoods.  Play the wind and check various depths ranging from 8 ft all the way out to 14 ft.  Here are some fish from this weekends trips:
