Fishing Report for September 19, 2018

Leech Lake is right on the verge of it’s great fall bite. Water temps right now are in the mid to low 60s as of today. With a stable, cooler weather forecast, look for the main lake bite to start picking up. Jig and a minnow on consistant wind blown shorelines and points will start holding numbers of fish in 4-8ft of water on areas such as Pine, Stoney and Ottertail Points. The perch bite is as strong as seen in the last few yrs with bigger perch coming off of jigs and bigger minnows in areas such as the Mounds, Sand Pt, Moores Point and the Walker narrows in 3-7 ft of water. Musky action right is as strong as ever with anglers reporting 1-2 fish days. Bucktails and topwater baits seem to be baits of choice depending on the wind. As we wind down the open water season some of the best fishing of the year is still to come!
