We will keep this report pretty short and simple. Not a whole lost has change in the past week in regards to the bite. I will say the early morning and evening bites are still by far the best bite with the day time look to fish deeper structure and cover alot of ground.

Leech Lake was overall a slower bite this past week. Fish were still caught but the feeding windows were short at times and you needed to be ready to go and have the right presentation when they were active.
Heading up to Leech Lake for the 1st week in August.
1st timer to the area. Looking to rent a small fishing boat for short trips, staying in Walker at the Chase. Found a few places on-line. Wondering if I am missing any. And what is a good price for 1/2 day rentals??
Thanks in advance for any help!!
Tight lines and safe fishing!
For bait walk across the parking lot to Reeds Sporting Goods. Live bait is just inside the door to your left. Walker bay is always good fishing follow Jason Freed on Lake-Link for weekly fishing reports. Also the guys at Reeds back in the fishing department are very good. Call a few resorts and ask for the Dock Boy they usually have current fishing information. In the evening try Sand Point in Walker bay between dinner time and sunset. Go left from the Chase you should see boats beginning to cluster on the Walker side of the point. Good Luck!!
Visting Leech lake for the first time, staying in Walker at the big hotel "Chase." Wondering were in Walker to get bait, or should I try to bring my own before leaving for vacation? Also wondering about where to get updated local fishing advice once there? I'll have my big boat so have the ability to get on main lake....do I need to, or is Walker bay gererally just as good as the main lake?

Happy Belated 4th of July to everyone. Hard to believe we have hit the mid way point almost for the summer. The walleye fishing has started to stabilize more, but anglers are having to change gears now with water temps in the low 70s. Being versatile and willing to change things up, have different kinds of bait, and tactics for your arsenal is key. Some days this past week it was leeches in the morning and crawlers in the afternoon as an example.
86° - 90° F
71° - 75° F
8 feet with intermitent weeds was the key to our success. Threw SR5's (purple was good) the last hour before sunset. During the rest of the day, 12 to 15ft with lindy rigs and leeches.

Was up on vacation and fished Kabekona Bay last week before the wind blew. Used a jig and spot tail shinners. Picked up numerous walleye and large perch. Tried to stay in 10ft, but the wind made that tough at times. Seemed the best action was in the 10ft slot. Several northern to keep one busy between walleye.
