Report from the Dock

The hot weather continues to persist and that’s kept a lot of anglers off the water. There’s been plenty of recreational activity in most areas, but it’s been so warm, that fishing seems to have taken a backseat. Panfish and bass continue to provide consistent action along the weedlines in most locations with bigger fish often being found in and around deep vegetation, 15 feet or more even early and late each day. Walleye anglers are grinding out bites during midday hours with better activity taking place each evening and after dark. Leeches and crawlers, crankbaits or reactionary baits such as Jiggin’ Raps or Hyper Glides seem to be working best. There hasn’t been much for muskie activity reported mainly due to the heat and warm water temperatures, which many anglers avoid so they don’t stress these fish. Many areas also reported water levels that continue to recede and with very little rain expected again this week, accesses are getting pretty skinny. There have been issues with getting boats in or out on some lakes.

Leech Lake Report

Walleyes remain scattered, so cover water with crankbaits or spinner rigs and crawlers or leeches on the main lake structure in 15 to 20 feet. The Bear Island area started giving up a few more walleyes in 15 to 20 feet and some fish can be had on deep weed edges as well. Muskies are being raised more consistently on the rocks than weeds, especially in Sucker Bay.

Report from the Dock It’s been a strange week of walleye fishing with many reports indicating that there’s been quite a few fish being caught in shallower water – less than 10 feet in many areas. For as hot as it continues to be, you’d think the exact opposite would be taking place, but the […]

Report from the Dock Mid-day walleyes have become increasingly hard to consistently catch in most areas. Anglers doing best are covering water with a spinner and crawler on mid-lake structure and picking off a few active fish as they go. The early morning and evening hours have been more consistent, especially on big flats or […]

Report from the Dock There seemed to be quite a bit of fish movement to deeper water this week. Walleye action has been tough in many areas during the day, but the fish being caught are in that 15- to 20-foot range and being taken with spinner and live-bait rigs on, or around the structure. […]

Report from the Dock After the cold front last week, weather conditions stabilized a bit more and walleyes seem to be responding in most areas. Minnows are still productive, but leeches, nightcrawlers, and even crankbaits have started to produce better numbers of fish. Work the points, shorelines, and other shallow structures during low-light periods or […]
