Leech Lake, MN (June 7th, 2023)

Walleye fishing on Leech Lake has been great the past week. Fish are grouped together nicely and they seem to be hungry. Earlier in the week a jig and shiner was still the bait of choice, but as the week has gone on a slip bobber and leech has stole the show. An 1/8th ounce jig and half a night crawler has also been putting a good number of fish in the boat as well. Look for walleyes to be holding on flats in 9’-14’ of water to be holding fish right now. Especially areas adjacent to rocky shorelines that were holding fish earlier this year. In addition to the flats there are a decent number of fish showing up on some of the rock humps and bars in 12’-23’ of water as well. 

The crappies are essentially done spawning and are beginning to make their way to the first breaks near their spawning areas. There are still some fish to be had shallow, but most are starting to slip out. Check new weed growth especially cabbage weeds close to a shallow spawning areas. Casting a 1/16th ounce jig and minnow is a good way to cover water searching for these transitioning fish.
