At that time, they will probably be doing all 3. Jigging the reefs should be a good bet. 12 Mile, 2 humps north of 12, 16, Tower, Gull Rock, Little Gull Rock, etc. Some days they like a colored jig and other days they want a plain lindy or maybe even something pulled behind a bottom bouncer. You also see guys pulling riggers with sr-7 rapalas and long lining reef runners. I guess it all depends on what you want to do. I like to fish live bait so I would start jigging/lindying the reefs. If its slow, pull the long lines or the riggers out and cruise the edges in deeper water. Watch your electronics because you should see fish a few feet off the bottom. Adjust the lure running depth accordingly. Good luck.

Perfect advice bapper......almost sounds like Blaine is a suburb of Baudette and you're out everyday.

You know Walleyejon, the 6 hour drive with 2 kids from Blaine kills me but once I get up there, there's no other place I would rather be. Its tough to beat fishing the rocks. I only get up about 7-8 times per year, but you always have the chance to catch that big one.

WJ, I will let you know. I think 7/18-7/22 is the next trip. Maybe we can meet up and find some fish and find some beers.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
