Leech Lake Fishing Report May 28,10
LEECH LAKE MAY 26, 10 Walleye REPORT:
Warmer weather has brought the shiners into the shallows, main lake pts in the north & east bays
from Steamboat to Portage & Boy Bay.
Southshore Whippholt area shiners & last yrs perch hatch is in & the walleyes are following.
Wind swept points are key, some of the productive spots have been: The Narrows, Pine Pt., Little
& Big Stony, Hardwood, Little Hardwood, Duck One, Ottertail, 2 Pts., Federal **** ( The Pine Tree)
Sugar Pt., Diamond Pt., Little Cedar Pt., & Breezy Pt.,.
No matter where you access there is a spot near by.
9-12 ft daytime, 4-9 ft. morning & evening.
temp is still in the low 60's Walker Bay
Low 70's temp Boy Bay.
Northland's Fireball 1/8-1/4 oz.
( Color) Firetiger or Parrot have been hot.
Northland's Thumper Jig 1/8-1/4 oz.
( Color) Firetiger, Glo Watermelon, Gold Shiner
If water goes flat throw a Lite Bite Slip Bobber.
w/ a 1/16 oz. Fireball or a plain hook w/ a leech
or shiner & drift.
Leeches and Crawlers are working better
on the rocks & flats.
Rainbow Spinner & a bottom bouncer w/ a Leech or 1/2 Crawler
Gold Metallic or Green Metallic Sunrise have been the best.
Don't go too fast 1mph is enough.
With the full moon night trolling has been hot around Goose Island
& Sand Pt., Rapala Flat rap has worked the best because you
can troll super slow & twitch it on the shallow flats.
Water is a little clearer, night trolling would be a good bet.
Good Luck Fishing This weekend,
We will see you out there..

Great Info. I am planning a trip up to Belle Taine Lake near Nevis on the 11th, 12th and 13th...I have family that have a cabin on Belle Taine. We generally lounge on the boat all day, but I was hoping to get some fishing in at least one of the days on Leech Lake or Big Sand Lake. Usually when I fish for walleye I troll with a Lindy Rig and Minnow, just wondering if this method will be successful or should I try jigging? I am also wondering if there are any good spots on Belle Taine, I have fished for walleye on that lake a few times and not had any luck. Any tips and pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
