      Leech Lake Fishing Report
       
       
      Well the Leech Lake Walleye Tournament is a wrap and another huge success it was.  Almost 1300 fish were brought to the scales with almost 80 limits of 6 fish brought to the scale each day.  The best part there was a 98% live release rate which says a lot about the success of this tournament and its incredible workers.  A huge thank you goes out to everyone involved who helped make once again the Leech Lake Walleye Tournament one of the best in the Midwest.  Last but not least a big congratulations goes to one of the LOA team members Aaron Murphy and his partner Pete Miskovich on their 5th place finish and the largest bag for Day 1 of the tourney.
       
       
      The lake is changing by the days and week.  Fish can be caught so many different ways and in so many different types of locations.  During the tournament anglers had success lindy rigging, with a jig and minnow, and pulling spinners.  The fish are definitely transitioning into their summer patterns and haunts and as June moves along it should really get good.  For the LOA team, a jig and a minnow was by far our best producer when it came to putting fish in the boat.  Depending on the conditions aggressive snap jigging along sand flats, breaklines in 8-12ft of water, or pitching jigs into cabbage was the best producer.  1/8th KenKatch Long Shank Jigs were the ticket and color was key.  Changing up the color during bright conditions vs. cloudy or overcast was the key to putting more fish in the boat.  Many anglers had a lot of success rigging leeches and crawlers along shoreline breaks and along transition lines of rock/gravel or sand and gravel.  Having a longer snell with a smaller hook and glow bead, such as 6+ feet was definitely a key to success.  Spinner fishing is starting to also pick up and one of our favorite times of the year..look for rock edges on the main lake reefs or shoreline breaks around Sand Beach and Two Points to produce fish in 12-16ft of water.  Speed was the key, going anywhere from 1-1.5MPH depending on the weather conditions.
       
       
      June is one of our favorite times to be on the lake because there are so many locations and ways to catch Mr. Walleye.  The Cabelas NWT tourney is the next big event on the lake in just a little over a week.  It should be fun to see many of the well known pros in action.

      If you are set with Middle Spunk I'd jig for sunnies/crappies (or chase northerns).   Middle Spunk is heavily developed.  I avoid it for that reason but if you're going to be there anyways, you could certainly find worse lakes.  (my two cents are there are too many tubers/wake boarders in the summer which probably means winter is the better time to fish it...)   All three spunks can pretty good for fishing but all have heavy fishing pressure...  They all three are pretty much panfish/northern lakes.  (That usually means fishing can be boom or bust.) Upper (or Big) Spunk (which is actually the lower of the lakes looking at a map...) has the most interesting structure in it (humps, big bulrush island, etc... and a couple of pretty neat little bays in the summer) I personally prefer lower spunk.--probably half of the lake is undeveloped bulrushes.

      Do any of you guys know if Surface Tension still swims around these parts? I think I need my Nils sharpened. I had sent him a message through the HSO forum a while ago and didn't hear back. I'm not sure if HSO and Fishing MN share the same messaging platform, or if I need to try him here instead. Did a quick search and it doesn't look like he's posted in a while, so I'm hoping someone knows his whereabouts.

      Decent panfish lake. They would be my target kicks out some sporadic bites all year. Not much for a walleye lake they get stocked quite often but for some reason never take off. Don't rule out chaseing  Tullibbees. Every winter she gives some up. Piles of deep water out there she can be a tough one. I personally prefer Upper  easier to break down compared to Middle good luck!

      Heading up to Avon to fish Middle Spunk lake this weekend. Looking for any advice or insights for fishing this lake and what to target.

      All set for our annual fishing trip to Crane and Sand Point Lake. I have been going since mid 1980's and the new crew for the past 11 years. We will be there May 29 and staying at a campsite in Sand Point. We plan to venture up a bit perhaps to Wolf Island or Namakan. We fish almost exclusively for pike...all bass and eyes go back to swim again. Any spots to share for pike. We may even change it up a bit and fish crappies this year.  thanks ...good luck all you ice warriors. mark

      its a fun trip. i'd suggest going with a guide the first trip. I've gone out with the one who's last name starts with an H. He was pretty darn awesome.Then you can replicate the tactics. I've gone over there 3 times. Caught fish every time. It's AMAZING that in a large metropolitan area like that there are virtually no fishermen on the ice when it's there.
