Fishing report

From Outdoor News

LAKE MILLE LACS

East — Lindy Rigs and leeches are turning walleyes on the north-end sand in 19 feet. The 12- to 18-foot rocks, shoreline breaks, and rock reefs also are holding walleyes. Leeches under floats or on rigs and even crankbaits have triggered walleyes. The water remained relatively cool earlier this week so the in-shore structure seems to be most productive.

West — The majority of walleyes are hitting a Lindy Rig and leech or jig and minnow on the breaks in St. Alban’s Bay and Garrison Bay. When the wind blows, 10 to 12 feet has been producing fish, but look deeper when it’s calm. Trolling Rapalas in six to 10 feet along the shorelines during the evening hours also has produced walleyes.

BRAINERD/NISSWA AREA

Walleyes are hitting shiner and rainbow minnows in 17 to 23 feet at North Long Lake and Round Lake. At Gull Lake, panfish can be had in most bays and channels, northern pike are an easy catch on the weedlines, while minnows and leeches are turning some walleyes in 16 to 22 feet. Panfish action has picked up in three to six feet at Round and Lake Margaret.

CASS LAKE AREA

A jig and minnow is producing walleyes on the reed edges and emerging cabbage beds in six to 14 feet on Lake Andrusia, Cass Lake, and Kitchi Lake. Jumbo perch are being caught along the reeds on the north side of Rice Lake and the McDonald Lake area of Cass. Northern pike are hitting minnows on Andrusia and crappie action has improved throughout Allen’s Bay on Cass.

CROSBY AREA

Shiner minnows have been the best walleye bait during the early stages of the season at Serpent Lake and Rabbit Lake in seven to 12 feet. Northern pike action has been excellent with spinnerbaits on lakes such as Serpent, Lower Mission Lake, and the Pennington Chain. Limits of rainbow trout are being pulled from the Portsmouth Pit, Manuel Pit, and Pennington Pit. Look for crappies and sunfish in three to 10 feet at Bay Lake, Black Hoof Lake, and Clearwater Lake, while Emily Lake is giving up perch in shallow water.

LAKE OF THE WOODS

A jig and minnow combination has provided steady walleye action in 10 to 16 feet along the south shore. The Rainy River, Lighthouse Gap, and Morris Point areas have produced good numbers of keepers and a few big walleyes as well.

LEECH LAKE

Shiner and rainbow minnows are turning walleyes in seven to nine feet during low-light periods or windy conditions. The best midday bite has been in 12 to 15 feet of water with areas such as Pine Point, Little Hardwood, and Big Hardwood all kicking out fish given the right conditions. The southern shoreline and Bear Island, as well as the Federal Dam area on the north end, also are giving up limits. Perch reports have been minimal, while the bays and harbors are holding a few crappies.

HACKENSACK AREA

Walleyes and northern pike are being caught with minnows in 12 to 16 feet at Woman Lake, Birch Lake, and Pine Mountain Lake. Leeches are working best for walleyes at Ten Mile Lake in 12 to 17 feet. Panfish reports are improving with lakes such as Birch and Ten Mile now producing fish in three to five feet.

McGREGOR AREA

A jig and minnow is producing walleyes in six to 12 feet during the evening hours at Big Sandy Lake and Lake Minnewawa. Pike also have hit minnows in 10 to 12 feet at Minnewawa. Crappie action has been best on Minnewawa in six to nine feet, while Big Sandy is kicking out crappies and sunfish in three to six feet.

LAKE MINNETONKA AREA

On Lake Minnetonka, walleyes are hitting floating jigs tipped with leeches or shiner minnows in 18 feet of water during low-light periods. The day bite has been tough throughout the area. Slow-trolling sucker minnows on top of the 12- to 15-foot milfoil has turned northern pike and look for those warm water bays and channels to produce crappies at Minnetonka, Lake Independence, and Medicine Lake.

RAINY LAKE

Jackfish Bay is giving up walleyes in eight to 10 feet of water, most of which are hitting minnows or crankbaits. On the east side of the Brule a jig and minnow is turning walleyes in 45 to 55 feet. A few northern pike are coming out of the bays in 10 to 12 feet, but finding big fish has been difficult.

LAKE WINNIBIGOSHISH

The six- to 10-foot shoreline breaks are providing steady walleye and perch action. A jig and shiner minnow is the best option on the north end, off Tamarack Point, and the west-side points. While most areas of the lake are holding fish, look for the most active pods of fish to be feeding on the wind-driven points and shorelines.

ALEXANDRIA AREA

Lake Mary is kicking out walleyes in seven to 15 feet of water, mainly on jigs and minnows with a few coming on crawlers. The inlets and outlets on most small lakes are producing walleyes as well. Crappie action continues to be good in shallow water at Lake Le Homme Dieu, Lake Carlos, Lake Darling, and Lake Geneva.

ANNANDALE AREA

A few walleyes are coming off Clearwater Lake in 16 to 24 feet with minnows. On Big Swan Lake, minnows and crankbaits are producing walleyes near the river mouth. Northern pike are hitting minnows at Sugar Lake, Lake John, and Clearwater in 10 to 14 feet. Clearwater, Cedar Lake, Lake Sylvia, Sugar Lake, and Lake Pulaski are giving up crappies in shallow water.

BATTLE LAKE

Minnows are producing walleyes in 10 feet or less in areas with moving water, rocks, and emerging weedlines at East Battle Lake, Rush Lake, Walker Lake, and Otter Tail Lake. Crappies and sunfish remain active in the bays of Clitherall Lake, Leon Lake, Elbow Lake and at the culvert on Ten Mile Lake. Northern pike can be had on sucker minnows.
