Thanks Fever. I haven't been out on Stella in a couple years and it has always been decent. I'll be going after bass. Any luck on smallies or just largies when you were out?

Thanks Fever. I'll let you know how I do. It'll be hot tomorrow, so I'll get out at the buttcrack of dawn and probably fish for a few hours. Thanks again.

I am going to try Washington tonight before sundown. Anybody know where I can try to find a walleye or 2? Or has it been dead like usual?

Ended up going to Erie on saturday morning instead of Stella. The bass bite was good on Erie. 2 of us boated 20 fish in the morning. Plastic worms and Stik-o's were the ticket on the weededges. Most bass were around a pound with a few 2-pounders and one 3-pounder. It took a little while for them to start biting, probably because of the big overnight storm, but from 9:00 until 11:00, it was pretty steady action. Good time.

You know who you need to talk to if you want the tips. Call me tomorrow and I can give you all kind of in-sight on the lake. My parents and I have been fishing the lake (every weekend up til 1992) since 1978. I have a "few" spots that you can catch your fish regardless of the weather or pressure.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

    • Walleye #1
        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
