Sorry it has been awhile.  Back guiding and doing trips and will be full force here in June.  Here is quick report from last weekend.

Walleyes on Leech Lake found themselves spread out but actively feeding on shiners. A Jig and shiner or a plastic and lindy rigs with shiners and leeches were the go to presentations during the course of the week. Somedays walleyes were wanting it dragged along which is where lindy rigs worked well and other days snapping or twitching a jig and minnow was the ticket. So being diverse in your presentations, changing up colors and cadences, and getting away from the crowds is the ticket.  

West End - Fish were found on West Goose Flats, Star Point, Grand Vu Flats, Duck Point, Pine Point, Stoney, and on some of the breaklines in Traders Bay. Depending on the day depths changed, but it seemed the best bite was in 8-14 feet of water. Find the shiners and you found walleyes closeby!

East End/Main Lake - Main Lake Rocks are still producing a large quantity of fish in the 20-26” protected slot, with some keepers mixed in. Annex, Submarine, Five Mile, Pelican Island, and Rogers Point all had decent bites. Fish were typically found in that 8-12ft range on this part of the lake and finding areas with sand and boulders was the key. Portage Bay also reported a good bite up near Federal Dam. Look for emergent cabbage in Portage, especially on those bright and sunny days where those walleyes will look to find cover. Pitching a jig and minnow or jig and plastic for these Leech Lake Walleyes in the cabbage is fun way to catch them.  

Jumbo Perch are also showing up with the walleyes, but often times will be shallower. Found some of our best perch bites in 6-10ft of water, with some really nice jumbos mixed in.

We were able to fish 4 days out of the 6 due to bad weather We managed to limit out on 9 - 13" perch (120) by Tuesday afternoon and we caught 40 Walleyes 16" - 26". We kept our limit out of the slot with no problem with most 18 - 19". I fished Bass on the last day getting a LM Bass or Northern almost every cast for at least an hour. I think I boated 30 Bass & 20 Northern myself all on a white spinner bait in 5' of water fishing the reeds.  Bass were to 4lbs and northern were to 28". Spoke with a couple of guys from the Twin Cities who boated 60-70 walleyes in 3 days up to 25" and they were used shiner minnows and leeches on a small jig fishing vertical. They were after bigger fish but were not able to find any as no one else could either from what I was told and saw. At 58 degrees the big ones have spawned and left to deeper water the guides told us so maybe I will find the bigger ones this fall. Great trip despite the wind and all day rains we had for a few days.

4 of us fished Leech from 9/24 thru 9/30 with good results despite the weather we had to deal with. High winds on Monday kept us from going out at all with only partial days fished on the other days earlier in the week.

We boated larger Perch & Walleye this year compared to the last 2 years and the numbers were down due to weather preventing us to fish. The 25 walleyes ran pretty much from 18 to 25" and the perch we kept were at 9.5" - 13".

We did notice that a strong year class of 8 - 8.5" of perch exists with a easy 200 fish caught in that length in any area we fished.

All fish came off a jig & minnow combo fished directly below the boat in 7 - 12' of water with a heavier jig used this year due to the winds. 2 drift socks were also utilized when fishing.

A great trip with the son & friends and look forward to next year, perhaps this coming spring.

Tite Lines to all !

Stayed at pine point and ha a blast  was nice to be able to fish right out of the resort  did well for walleyes after dark  8 to 11pm and then 4 to 6am  #6 and #9 raps were best  either perch or silver and green in 8 FOW! Not the easiest troll had to fight weeds a lot but overall worth it! We had 12 guys for 3 days and we all had our limit  biggest walleye 25.5".  Trolled right in front of our place and then hit the narrows to sort perch. Some giants and lots of cigars!
