Well after a crazy weekend of fishing. This is what ended up on my Buckshot Rattle Spoon, Light rod. and 4lb. Test.

These kinds of fish are what it is all about. Put your time in........Find your own spots......be patient and you will be blessed with memories for life. wink.gif

This is why I throw back all of those other upper 20's fish. It makes so much of a difference in every inch. She was giant. It was an extemely tense few minutes while we were trying to position the head up an 8 inch hole. She finally gave me the position and came up the hole with no room to spare.

31' Guessing some where around 12 lbs. IMG_0246-1.jpg

Congrats PBC! Did she come out of Pike's? I've been watching your posts for the past year. I'm also an Iowan that loves to visit Cass Lake. We fish Pike's regularly. Could that be a 4 lb test record for wally's? You might want to check it out! Again Congrats!!! smile.gif

Congratulations! That is truly the fish of of a lifetime. I've been stuck in the upper 20's and had just about given up on getting a 30+, but you have restored my hope. Soooo... did you soak the Rattle Spoon in the Coke or the Coors Light? wink.gif If I were you I would contact Northland and see if they would at least give you some tackle, maybe something more, as a promo.

Thanks Guys.

There are more of them for sure Labs. They just are not fooled by baits that often. Glad one bit on mine. smile.gif

With all the upper 20's that I have seen thrown back and heard from others that have done the same, there is a great chance that sometime you will tie in to one also.

You could also consider tossing the lure in the mouth of it, like I did...tossed the rapala Husky Jerk in the mouth, just to finish off the mount. Just an idea. Once agian, great fish.

Why is it that, despite my 40 years of fishing, I never get a walleye that size?? Life is not fair. Oh well, I bet you never caught a salmon or a Laske Trout grin.gif. Nice walleye

      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.  
    • Walleye #1
      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.    
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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!
    • gunner55
      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 
    • Wheres_Walter
      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
