My son and I are doing a 2 week trip to Leech and Cass lakes the end of May and first of June. We have a guide for leech and will work to get one for Cass. My question is this, what type jigs, tackle is being used for Walleye, Pike, Bass? I have some stuff but trying to decide if I should bring it or just wait until I get to MN to get the "right" stuff. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks Jeff

Standard lead jigs in the 1/8 or 1/4 oz size are a staple in the walleye game. It helps to have a variety of colors as you don't know exactly what they'll want each day.

There are other options such as lindy rigs and slip bobbers as well.

Chances are if you have a guide he'll likely have the tackle you will need. But if you want to bring your own stuff I would start with a variety of jigs and possibly lindy rigs. Then slip bobbers and perhaps some spinners for trolling.

But I would call your guide before you go to see what he might suggest for the type of fishing he'll be doing with you. He'll know where the hot bite is and what method you'll use to catch them.

Spoons and spinner baits will work for the pike and bass. Nothing fancy there. Bass are bass and you can use the same baits as you would in any other part of the country.

Cool thanks, I am going to get some jigs here I think as the sales are starting. I did get a couple rigs for muskie as we will be there for the opener. I will work on some spoons also but do already have some. I apprecate your comments. Jeff

So many good options for pike. I suggest:
Chartruese spinnerbaits with a colordo blade
Berkley hollow belly swimbaits, 5" bluegill ( 05 hook )
A selection of spoons, red and white and firetiger colors
Something for the surface... a heddon spook or big jitterbug ( frog)
And don't forget some leaders and a rod withsome backbone.
Good Luck!

Don't forget some black and silver number 7 and number 5 Shad Raps for both Leech and Cass. They catch a lot of walleye perch and northern and are a great way to learn water. White spinner baits will catch lots of northerns.

The white spinnerbaits will also work for bass, also, Some could still be shallow at that time.
