To be quite honest, this forum has been pretty embarrassing as far as helpful information goes. If your going out of dickies, try and get over towards hennepin island and the surrounding structures. If you have a bottom finder lake map you should be able to find some good areas for yourself.If you plan on moving around then that would be the place to start.Gold with white swedish pimples or solid white tipped with fatheads seem to be the ticket.Try deeper water during the day from 24-30+ ft. I'd advise you to ask dickies about getting out to the flats if possible.

I hope this helps. Good luck grin.gif

I would love to be able to help you, but I have been up every weekend since new years, and most of them long weekends. I have not caught a jumbo yet and only 7 walleye that were all way to small. Been to the flats once, several deep gravel spots, even past years honey holes. The fish are there but it's very hard to get them to bite. I have heard lately that pink is the color, but I have not proven this theory. Sorry I can't help, I guess you put in the time and something will happen... eventually. Good luck

Sorry what is the question? I will try to take a stab at it. For what it is worth Wall Guy is right the forum has not done a real good job lately of helping out.

RATHER BE HUNTING

I too will be at Dickies this weekend. We are renting a 12 man shack and a 4 man for a bachelor party. We asked them to move the houses away from others so we don't bother anybody who is actually trying to fish. I plan on fishing pretty serious till dark on Saturday. My plan is to hook my portable to my snowmobile and head to the mud flats. It has been pretty slow everywhere except the Mud. Depending on where they have the houses placed it will be about a 10 mile ride to get to some flats. I doubt with the snow you could do it in a truck. My advice to you if you have no portables or a way to get to the flats would be to grab a bunch of tip ups and get on some weedlines with sucker minnows in some of the bays down there. Northerns are always biting.

      The Walleyes are in their full summer patterns now. Our Leech Lake Fishing Guides are finding the walleyes in a few different places using a few different techniques. The key times of the day are the low light periods which has been an important factor for catching these fish on calm sunny days.   Trolling the flats has put mid summer Leech Lake Walleyes in the boat. The main idea here is to cover ground using crank baits and find the active fish. Aim to move the boat at about 2 mph and getting your lure of choice within 2 feet of the bottom. Don’t spend too much time on on spot even if you are marking fish. Our Leech Lake walleye guides have had the best luck running # 5 Rapalas in the bleeding copper flash or bleeding hot olive color. If you are finding the fish a little deeper switch up to a #7 to keep that lure in the strike zone.   When using this method be sure and target the flats where there is weed and gravel mixed in. Duck point and goose island are great spots to start when pulling these cranks. 9 to 12 feet of water has been the most productive area for us. The other technique that has put walleyes in the boat is lindy rigs and moving slowly on or near break lines. Walker Bay has plenty of structure for this method and we have been focusing on the south end. Leeches and crawlers have been working the best in the 10-16 feet of water range. With the crawler a green or brown floating jig has worked well. Try to keep the boat moving under 1 mph and closer to .5 the better.   Have fun.... Leech Lake Guide Service

      I only fish the east end ,but your deeper idea is correct. Fish are running 25-35.  Crank baits are best right now ,but rigs were getting them this AM. Might want to run bottom bouncers and spinners with a crawler. Every day is different lately so keep looking. Good Luck

      It was a beauty...20” long and would guess 4 1/2+lbs. It was released right after the picture. My wife caught that one In late May in 10 feet of water.
    • Wakemupwalleye
      Any help on the walleyes would be great. Been up here a week and caught my share of 13 and below but just can’t get on anything with size. Quite honestly not marking anything. Feel like I’ve tried everywhere. Have they gone deeper? I’ve been fishing reefs that normally hold fish. I’m on the west end but will fish anywhere

      Went dock skipping again yesterday with a friend near Zimmerman and it was still effective.  Chartreuse with black flake has been the go-to color in that murky water.
    • Better Than Working!
      How big is the first one? That is a mighty fine looking fish! I am jealous!

      I have to agree with everyone. Up on rainy lake, the bass have been bitting...here’s a few pics...
    • jigginjim
      Try walking the west side, if you can get a float tube you will have the whole lake to access. Jigs with swimbaits, twisters or crankbaits, jerkbaits work well.  now the you it's summer, frog type surface baits will get you some large bass or even a muskie.  Sorry, I  have been guiding, not watching the network.
