Leech Lake Fishing Report for Aug 29th, 2019

Thursday, August 29th, 2019

Cover water with crankbaits on the 14- to 18-foot rocks and you’ll catch a few walleyes. There’s also a spinner and crawler bite in the Goose Island/Snake Pit area in 15 to 20 feet. A slip bobber and leech or trolling crankbaits at night continues to produce some walleyes in the Sand Point area over 9 to 12 feet. Muskie reports have been best from Portage Bay, the Annex and Submarine Island area with bucktails. Spinnerbaits are turning largemouth bass in the reeds or rice beds in Boy Bay and Steamboat Bay.

7 of the Funniest Fishing Lures

Tuesday, August 13th, 2019

Need a way to pass the time and enjoy a little laugh as you wait for a nibble on your line? We scoured the web for goofy, unusual, and flat-out weird fishing lures for your entertainment. Here’s the 7 lures that gave us the biggest chuckle.


#1 – Labatt Blue Bottle Cap Lures


 For those who really love their Canadian beers, give these bottlecap lures a try! Maybe you’ll find some walleye who share your taste in pilsners.

#2 – “The Floater”


It should be obvious why we chose to list this particular lure at this particular position in the list… Maybe it’s for catching “crappies”?

#3 – Spark Plug Lure


What do you need to drive a car underwater?
Your diver’s license!

#4 – Corn on the Cob Lure


For extra effectiveness, drench this lure with butter and salt first!

#5 – Submarine Lure


Keep an eye out for tiny torpedos!

#6 – Alien Fishing Lure


Maybe this little green man will help you “abduct” a big Northern or two.


#7 – Troll Doll Lure


“Dave, this isn’t what I meant when I said we should try trolling for fish.”

It’s not a lure, but we had a good chuckle at this made-up prank gift box. Gives a whole meaning to the term fish-eye lens!

We’re not sure how well these lures will actually perform… for some truly helpful fishing insight, be sure to check out our weekly Fishing Reports. If you do want to give some wacky lures a try, you’ll need a place to stay — we’ve got you covered.
