Lots of mayflies now. Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water. Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish. Use leeches. 2-3ft snell. Plain hook. Caught quite a few yesterday. Good size range. Kabetogama.
Got to cabin. Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple. Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible. I'm on west end and could use a suggestion. I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.

Me: "You're welcome. Did you check the websites I referenced? Did you stop at any boat dealers? "
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.
