It was a bitterly cold week/weekend on Leech Lake. Temperatures overnight in the mid 20’s below zero, wind and daytime highs not even reaching zero made it difficult for moving around. We still have plowed ice roads to Goose Island, the Snake Pits, Little Hardwoods, West Goose Flats, Grand View Flats, Stoney Point and the west side of the Paris Trench.

Fishing reports from in the Pine Point area still remain strong for those targeting Perch.  A few walleyes are mixed in but numbers seem to be getting tougher by the week.  Anglers who were most successful found the best bite for perch by using a larger fathead on a jigging spoon of almost any color, along with the willingness to do some sorting in between the waves of “keeper size” perch that seem to show up at different times of the day.  12-14 ft seemed to be the best depths during the cold front.  Walleye reports have been fairly limited with a few fish being caught during the primetime and overnight hours on rattle reels and or dead sticks.

Walker Bay ice conditions are still slowly improving with anywhere from 8-16 inches of ice being now found in most spots. Sand Point and Cedar Point have still been the best producing areas for walleyes and perch on shoreline breaks in 14-18ft or on the secondary breaks of 24-28ft. Green and Orange glow jigs are your best bet with a rainbow or shiner minnow.

We still have some availability for the month of February.  Give us a call or send us a message to book your sleeper or day house before the season is over!
