Perhaps the hottest tactic to catch walleye in northern Minnesota in recent years is power fishing with a slip bobber and leech in conjunction with forward facing sonar.

We fish Leech Lake shortly after the Minnesota opener with Dusty Minke. We break down how to use and set up Lowrance Active Target for finding fish along the one two punch of slip bobbers and leeches along with a jig and minnow depending on the conditions. As a rule of thumb, we found the slip bobber and leech to be more effective when there was no wind and we saw the jig and minnow shine when the fish became more fired up in wind. Leech Lake often fishes much better with some wind.

Leech Lake is a renowned destination walleye fishery near Walker, Minnesota. Besides a healthy walleye population, this area also boasts great panfish, bass and musky. There are also several resorts on Leech Lake with great hotels, restaurants and shops in the community of Walker.
