Leech Lake Area
December 31, 2014
Angling and spearing for northern pike has picked up in less than 12 feet in Steamboat Bay and Walker Bay. The Pine Point area is giving up perch, northern pike, and a few walleyes in 10 to 14 feet, while walleye reports from Walker Bay remain mostly slow.

Last weekend’s warm weather and rain slowed fishing opportunities and didn’t help the ice. Caution is advised in most areas with cracks and some pressure ridges forming; with this week’s colder air, the hope is that most of them will heal up. The only report worth noting is coming off Pine Point where perch and a few walleyes were caught in 10 to 12 feet.

Look for walleyes on the humps in Walker Bay over 20 to 30 feet, but watch the ice due to varying depths. The Pine Point area has more consistent ice and walleyes are being caught in 10 to 14 feet of water. A few perch are being caught in the Sand Point area; you have to do some sorting in order to put together a mess of bigger fish.

Most main-lake areas now have 10 to 13 inches of ice, while Walker Bay has 5 to 7 inches. Walleye reports have been best in 10 to 14 feet off Pine Point, Stony Point, and in Trader’s Bay. A few good-sized perch can be had in these areas as well.

When the wind and weather has allowed anglers to get out, walleyes are being caught with minnows on the shoreline breaks in Walker Bay or on the main-lake flats, points, and shorelines in shallow water. However, fishing pressure has been very limited over the course of the past week. Deer have become noticeably more active and even with the cold weather, there hasn’t been a big push of new ducks into the area.

Look for perch in 7 to 10 feet to hit minnows in the Narrows and Sand Point area. Walleyes also can be had with minnows and jigs in 3 to 8 feet along the wind-driven shorelines and points. Muskie action has picked up on main-lake rocks and points. Duck hunters are shooting ringnecks, redheads, canvasbacks, and a few bluebills, but there hasn’t been much duck movement the past week.
