Here's the latest report from Leech Lake from our friends at Leisure Outdoor Adventures:

In the past week the fishing has started to pick back up, especially during the late morning and afternoon. Fishing shallow has still produced the best action in 8-15ft of water early in the AM and in the evenings as those fish are actively moving around and moving up to feed on small perch in most cases.  Targeting them with slip bobbers, lindy rigs with crawlers, jigs, or even casting rippin raps or small crankbaits at times.  As the morning goes on and into the afternoon, focusing on windblown shoreline breaks in 18-25ft of water has produced well pulling crawlers or chubs on lindy rigs or utilizing reaction bite style baits such as jigging rap to provoke fish into biting. What has been promising this past week is we are seeing more and more larger schools of walleyes as well as some big pike and walleyes mixed in. If not fishing shoreline breaks, look to fish the bars and humps in 20-30' of water.  Walker Bay has been overall pretty good this past week with the Main Lake still producing fish, but having to move around and fish alot more spots. The Crankbait bite is still the most consistent bite on the Main Lake.Muskies continue to show themselves with anglers reporting fish hitting the net. Small bucktails, top waters, and jerkbaits have been the best presentation when casting for the fish of 10000 casts.  Until next weekTight LinesJason FreedLeisure Outdoor Adventures
