Leech Lake Fishing Report for Aug 30, 2018

Thursday, August 30th, 2018

Cover water with a crankbait or spinner and crawler for walleyes in Sucker Bay over 12 to 16 feet. The deep humps in Walker Bay started giving up a few more walleyes on live-bait rigs and crawlers. Trolling crankbaits after dark around Goose Island in 9 to 12 feet has produced walleyes as well. Muskies are hitting blade baits or topwater baits on the main lake rocks. Largemouths have been pulled from the rice beds.

Leech Lake Fishing Report for Aug 23, 2018

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

You have to cover water to catch walleyes during the day. Crankbaits or spinners and crawlers are producing some daytime fish in 12 to 15 feet around Goose Flats, the Snake Pit, and Cedar Point in Walker Bay. A slip bobber and leech also is producing some walleyes in the weeds and Walker Bay breaks in 9 to 12 feet. Muskie action remains best on the main lake rocks, but some fish have been caught in the weeds in Sucker Bay as well.

Leech Lake Fishing Report for Aug 16, 2018

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

Walleye action continues to be off, but some fish are being taken during the day on live-bait rigs and crawlers on the main-lake flats in 10 to 14 feet. You have to cover a lot of water. Trolling crankbaits or anchoring with slip bobbers and leeches are producing a few more walleyes during low-light periods in 8 to 12 feet on the flats and breaks in Walker Bay. Muskies remain somewhat active, but they seem to be more scattered between the rocks and weeds this week.
