I'm coming up to fish leech this weekend. Will be staying at Haiwatha Beech in Steamboat Bay. We'll be on the search for walleyes and perch. Can anyone give me info on whats been working.

Here is the last Thursday's report from the Outdoors News:

LEECH LAKE AREA

The most consistent walleye action is taking place in shallow water with crankbaits or minnows. Better areas this week have been Pine Point, Otter Tail Point, Goose Island, and Sand Point in nine to 12 feet. Perch continue to be caught on minnows off the points and Walker Narrows in 12 feet and muskie action has been limited this week. Work the bays and Bear Island area for panfish and the rice beds in Boy Bay are worth noting for largemouth bass.

that report pretty much sums it up as I think it was my buddy Cory who gave it...

Perch are starting to go crazy in the narrows.

I talked to a guy today that did pretty well for Northerns just east of Minnesota Island.

Pull shad raps and hornets off of Sand Point, Pine Point, The Snake Pit, ect. Don't be afraid to use the big motor and cover some ground.

Jig and a minnow on the wind swept side is good too right now. And Lindy's with leeches are still doing good.

Best fishing on the lake right now is pretty close to you.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for the info fellas. Getting excited aready. I am familiar with those locations. I'll be sure to post results when I get back. When you run sand point that area is quite large. Do you guys just run the small breaks?

In the past always have had trouble locating fish there.

The weather didnt help us a whole lot this past week. The perchin was very good in the narrows lots of sorting had to be done. We get a few walleyes in the boat but not as many as we had hoped. I had forgot how beautiful the lake is this time of year. We'll be back next year for sure, hopefully again yet late this fall. Larry has a 1st class resort at Hiawatha Beach!

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.

      I'll bet this lure will get a lot of bites! It may even catch a few fish! Does look interesting. Cliff
