Leech Lake Fishing Report for Jan 27, 2015

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

You have to stay on the move, but walleyes and northern pike are being caught on the flats and shoreline breaks on the main lake and in Walker Bay over 10 to 14 feet. Look for perch to be mixed in, but you have to sort through quite a few small fish.
