I use shiners all the time on leech lake. Green jigs also seem to be the ticket.Are people catching anything that can be kept? With the new slots

We were there last week and caught 40-50 walleyes with only 2 under the slot. The rest were 20"-26", beautiful healthy fish and a blast to catch. Water temp. was 54 degrees and green jigs and shiners seemed the best, but did catch a few on leeches. The owner of the resort said the DNR did a creel survey opening weekend. Made 11 stops and saw 11 keeper fish. Hmm, anyone for barbequed cormorant?

Wow! You must be a wizard! We were up last weekend and only caught 2, and only saw 3 other walleye caught. Mind if I ask where you were? Our fish came out of 9.5 feet of water in front of the resort. The others were east of Goose Island. We won't be back next year.

Mr. Big... We fished Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, although Saturday was shortened by the morning and late afternoon wind and rain. Friday was by far the best day of the 3 days with Saturday the worst. We were in 12'-13' on Ottertail. We did catch a few in 17-18' later in the day (5:00 p.m.). We did catch a few on Middle Stoney on Saturday, but the wind and rain made us quit early. We saw a lot of boats on Goose on Friday, but decided to stay where we were. Good to see such good brood stock for the future.

Caught 2 eyes and 2 northerns off Moers Point on saturday using jigs and fatheads. Of course the DNR was at the landing checking people for slot limits. Just how do they monitor cabin owners????HHHMMMMM

I was up there just this past Sat.-Tuesday, so today, i'm back.

The fishing was poor, i fished Duck, and Ottertail points, from about noon on for the past three days using jigs and shinners, leeches, nightcrwlers, ect... we didn't have any luck with anything except perch, and we even stopped to ask 3 other boats in that area, no one was catching anything.

4-6ft water steamboat bay 4-8ft water in sucker bay. redtails working good with bigger fish, while rainbows working better with smaller slot fish. leeches haven't quite turned on yet. fish the weed lines.

good luck, and remember have fun!
