Windy in Paradise

Posted on June 16, 2020 ยท Posted in Leech Lake Fishing Report

Last week was one of those weeks that really tests your patience. Gusty winds from seemingly every direction blew their way around Leech Lake and when that happens getting to the “good spots” becomes quite a chore and more times than not a wet ride. While winds battered our shoreline anglers were forced to stay closer to shorelines and to take shelter in nearby bays, overall things were just plain tough, but that didn’t stop our guests from trying.

Once the lake finally decides to calm down anglers are going to be able to take advantage of consistent temps throughout the water column, surface water is into the low 70’s already and continuing to climb with the heat we’re having. Trolling is going to be the preferred method of tracking down Walleye, tie on a flicker shad or shad rap and head to the mid-lake reef structure, there will be hungry Walleye waiting for you.

With warming water you can change your attention to Muskie, Pike or Bass all of which are more likely to cooperate in the heat, area’s of weeds in the southern bays or mid-lake rocks will soon be jam packed full of big fish action.

Justin is our web developer and photographer, check his work out HERE. I look at my dinner in a similar fashion.
