Leech Lake Fishing Report for Feb 2, 2015

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

Setlines with large minnows are turning walleyes on the 15- to 20- foot humps in Walker Bay. Cedar Point is giving up walleyes in 12 to 18 feet, as are the main lake flats in 12 to 15 feet. Catching perch involves sorting numbers along the 12- to 15- foot sand and shoreline breaks in?Walker Bay or in shallower water off Goose Island and Pine Point.
