Guide Testimonials and July Fishing Report

Our Guide Team has been busy hitting the water of late, putting fish in the boat and smiles on peoples' faces.  One thing we cherish is getting feedback whether it is the compliments and the praise we want to hear or sometimes what we don't like to hear.  That is what make us better and keeps us going day in and day out.  Just wanted to share a few things from our customers of late.

We had a fantastic time this morning.  I told him myself, but Chuck was great!  Perfect guide for young kids.  This was my girls first time out and they LOVED it!  I would recommend Outdoor Leisure Adventures and Chuck to anyone looking for a guide.- Tom McConnell

We had a great time fishing Jim was an excellent guide Thank him again for me when you see him. Also he took quite a few pictures of my kids with their fish if you guys put any of them up on your website let me know so I can check it out.- Chad Holthouse

 Just a footnote to a great fishing trip: Kirby was truly a stellar guide in every way. Not only did he put Chris and I on fish, he also provided everything we could have asked for. He was so knowledgeable and courteous to both of us. Being anglers ourselves, Kirby provided us everything we could have wanted in terms of communication and experience. Thankyou for a wonderful 1st trip on Leech. - Barb Eue

Leisure Outdoor Adventures is simply THE BEST!  My family and friends have been given some of the greatest memories thanks to Toby, Jeff and Jason!  Three generations of family have shared the joys of, not "fishing", but "catching" with Leisure Outdoor Adventures.  you'll never see people work harder to make sure you have a great time.  We have made it a tradition to hook up with Jason Freed every year when we vacation at Chase on the Lake on Leech.  I don't know who had the bigger smiles on their faces, my kids, grandparents, or me.  We'll be booking Leisure Outdoor Adventures again soon!

These are just a few of the many emails and phone calls we get back after guide trips.  Certainly not every guide trip is perfect, but ultimately we strive to make it a memorable experience every time we pick up our people at the docks.

 Fishing Report

Leech Lake is still turning out some walleyes, you just have to work a little harder for them.  Early morning and evening bites have been good in 7-10ft of water using slip bobbers with a plain hook or small jig and leech, be sure to experiment each time you are out or casting jigs with leeches or smaller minnows such as fatheads.  During the day fish are being caught in Walker Bay working shoreline breaks in 18-30ft of water pulling chubs, crawlers, and Leeches.

Mixed reports are coming from the main lake.  Fish are being caught on the south end of the lake on Olson's, Huddles, Variety, and Hoger's Reefs slip bobber fishing or lindy rigging with a crawler or leech.  Trolling crankbaits along the major points such as Rogers or Diamond is also producing fish.  Mixed reports are coming from the main lake rock piles, the best fishing has been off of the rocks in 18-20ft of water pulling spinners with crawlers.  On windy days, slip bobber fishing around Pelican Island and on top of the reefs can also produce fish.

All in all this is the time of the year you have to think outside the box and try some different things.  Fish lots of spots, trust your graph, we love using our Lowrance Touch Screen's to pinpoint specific pieces of structure and plot a course as we drive structure.  Once we see fish, a simple tap on the screen and you have a waypoint marking that school of fish.  The key part is do your homework first, this will help eliminate alot of dead water for you.  Try different presentations and have fun doing it.
