Leech Lake Fishing Report for May 30th, 2024

May 30, 2024

Report from the Dock

Walleyes are being found deeper in some areas, 15 to 20 feet, but the majority of really consistent walleye bites remain in less than 10 feet. Water temperatures have not warmed much since last week, and in much of northern Minnesota, they’ve actually dropped a few degrees. As a result, minnows remain shallow and walleyes have stayed in to feed on them along wind-driven shoreline breaks and points. a jig or live bait rig with minnows continues to produce fish, although leeches and crawlers started showing up in more reports this week. Panfish activity is all over the place, again due to changing water temperatures. They seem to be moving in and out of shallow water either in pre-spawn mode, spawning, or they’ve wrapped it up. It just depends on what part of the state you’re fishing, but they’ll be extremely shallow or relating to emerging vegetation. Bass seem to be following similar patterns this week.

Leech Lake Report

The main-lake rocks, in 12 to 16 feet, started producing a few more walleyes on jigs tipped with pieces of crawler or minnow. The north side of Pelican Island, Mokie’s Reef, the Annex, and Submarine Island have been most productive. The Goose Island area and emerging weed edges in 9 to 12 feet have produced walleyes as well. Crappies seem to be moving in and out of the bulrushes and rice beds.
