Default Leech Lake Report 5/23-5/30

Had a great week despite the 85deg and sunny weather most days.

Caught lots of keeper Walleye with tons in the return slot of 18"-26" using mostly 1/8 & 1/4 oz jigs with minnows and some leeches, mostly chatruse but firetiger became the hot color by the end of the week.

caught lots of northern but mostly under 30"

Caught more perch than any other year, an eating lifesaver considering the hot & sunny weather, stinger hooks were added for the short bite.

Stayed at Brindleys & got the usual 5 star service.

Did a lot of drift fishing but also found lots of dropoffs loaded with fish.

For some reason trolling at night delivered very poor results, dropoffs & shallows produced better.

So I see Leech Lake has made a comeback-went there about six years ago and was getting reports that it was in a down cycle. Our fishing results kinda supported that theory, although mother nature was not kind to us that week.
Nice to see you had great results.

I've stayed at Brindley's twice over the years. One of the better places on the lake. Esp. like their dock. We stayed at the big house across the road, since we had a bunch of guys.
We didn't make it out to Leech this year...too many of us had prior commitments, but Leech is back to being a walleye machine. Over the the past 7 years, I've been up there 4 times, Kabetogama twice. Leech easily out fished Kabe.
There's a few great spots in Agency Bay for jumbo perch. One calm day when the walleyes weren't biting, my partner and I must have caught 25-30 perch....along with a dozen rock bass.

Glad to hear you did well on the eyes.
