Leech Lake (July 21st, 2022)

Walleye fishing has been overall pretty good on the lake focusing on 10-18 feet of water most days. Early in the morning throwing a slip bobber and leech/crawler above sand flats and weed edges has produced a good amount of fish.  We are also starting to see walleyes show up on the humps within Walker Bay as well as on the edges of the reefs on the Main Lake.  Rigging this fish with crawlers, leeches, or minnows as well as pulling spinners on the Main Lake will all help you catch fish.  Also using reaction style baits such as jigging raps.  Smallmouth bass fishing is good on the lake throwing ned rigs, top waters, tubes, and drop shots along the edges of big boulders.  Muskies are starting to show up on the reefs and shallow rock piles here and usually August if the best month to target them.  

What presentation(s) worked? 

Lindy Rigs, jigging raps and spinners for walleyes
Ned Rigs, Tubes, top waters, and Drop Shots for smallmouth
Topwaters, jerkbaits, and bucktails for muskies

What depth/structure?

10-18 feet mainly for walleyes, but some of the 20-26 foot humps as well.
12-15 feet for smallmouth on most days but with wind they will move up shallower.
