Report from the Dock

Walleyes still haven’t shifted into fall feeding mode, but water temperatures haven’t dropped much over the past week. Once that starts to happen, the state’s walleye bite will quickly improve. Currently, anglers continue to do best during low-light periods in shallow water mostly with crankbaits or with crawlers and minnows during the day – minnows are just starting to produce more walleyes. Panfish are still weed-related where green weeds remain, but more crappies are being found suspended over deep water. Muskie action is slowly improving, but again, cooler water and shorter days will flip that switch.

Leech Lake Report

Trolling crankbaits in 9 to 14 feet in Sucker Bay or the Snake Pit area has produced walleyes. A spinner and crawler is turning walleyes on the 12- to 14-foot breaks in Walker Bay. There’s been more people fishing for perch and sorting through a lot of small fish around Second Duck Point and the Narrows. Muskies continue to be seen more regularly on the rocks rather than weeds. Hunting pressure seems lighter than expected, but those going out are finding enough teal and geese.

Report from the Dock Many reports were very similar this week to last, which tends to happen this time of year. Not much changes at this point until water temperatures start to again cool down. That means walleyes are primarily being caught on main lake structure or along thick weedlines, mainly early and late each […]

Report from the Dock Mayfly hatches continue to limit walleye success on many of the state’s bigger bodies of water, but for early July, the bite is still going pretty strong in most areas. Anglers seem to be putting more effort towards the early morning and evening hours, taking advantage of these low-light periods for […]

Report from the Dock For the most part, the majority of the state has remained relatively cool over the past week, so water temperatures have not climbed much. There’s a lot of low to mid 60-degree water temperatures being reported and that seems to have allowed those shallow walleye and panfish bites to hang in there for […]

Report from the Dock Last weekend’s cold front and persistent winds seemed to have slowed walleye action a bit in most areas. The majority of walleyes being caught remain shallow and still being taken with minnows, although leeches and crawlers have started to produce more fish in some areas. The forecast calls for warmer, stable […]
