Weekly Minnesota fishing report
June 22, 2005



Lake of the Woods

The Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau reports a great walleye bite around Garden Island in 22 to 26 feet using hammered gold spinners tipped with minnows or worms. Anglers are having success fishing the south shore outside Lighthouse Gap and along Pine Island in 12 to 14 feet with spinners tipped with a minnow or nightcrawler. Northerns in the 30- to 36-inch range are hitting in Zippel Bay. Smallmouth bass and northern fishing continues to be very good in the bays and inlets to the Rainy River.

Grand Rapids area

Walleyes are hitting on Lake Winnibigoshish in 15 to 20 feet on the humps using leeches and nightcrawlers, according to Ben's Bait. Pokegama Lake is producing walleyes in 15 to 20 feet on Rapalas, Lindy Rigs and leeches; smallmouth bass in the shallows are hitting tube jigs and leeches.

Chisago City area

Frankie's Bait says largemouth bass fishing is phenomenal. Bucketmouths are hitting on Texas-rigged worms, jig worms and tubes in 8 to 10 feet in Chisago and South Lindstrom lakes. Area lakes also are producing panfish using wax worms and panfish leeches in 8 to 12 feet.

Annandale area

Local lakes are producing panfish in the shallows on wax worms, leeches, nightcrawlers and Berkley power baits, says Little Jim's Sports. Largemouth bass also are hitting along the weedlines and in the shallows using plastic worms, buzz baits, topwater baits and leeches. Anglers are finding walleyes in Clearwater and Cedar lakes on fatheads, pike suckers, leeches and nightcrawlers 16 to 20 feet. Northerns are being caught in area lakes off the weedlines on Rapalas or sucker minnows.

Mankato area

Lake Washington is producing panfish in 10 to 12 feet on wax worms and walleyes are hitting in the evening in 7 to 8 feet on Lindy Rigs or crank baits, according to The Bobber Shop. Northerns and largemouth bass are being caught in Jefferson Lake using spinner baits in the weeds. Panfish also are hitting in Lake Francis on wax worms and small jigs.

Spicer area

Mel's Sports reports walleyes and both smallmouth and largemouth bass action in Green Lake in the weeds using bobbers and leeches. The bigger walleye can be found down deep in 28 feet using Lindy Rigs and minnows and leeches.

BEMIDJI

Leeches and shiner minnows have been the best baits for walleyes on Lake Bemidji. These fish get most active during the evening hours in seven to 21 feet of water. Minnows also have produced walleyes on Lake Irvine in seven feet of water. Look for northern pike to be cruising the shallow weed edges on most area lakes.

BRAINERD/NISSWA

Look for walleyes to be most active early and late in the day on North Long Lake and Gull Lake. Live bait rigs tipped with leeches or shiner minnows have worked best in 12 to 18 feet of water. Northern pike and largemouth bass are biting consistently on area lakes in less than 10 feet of water and you will find plenty of crappies still in shallow water.

DULUTH

Fatheads or small sucker minnows on a jig have produced walleyes on Island Lake in 17 to 25 feet of water. Work the edge of the deep channel near the Boy Scout Landing on the St. Louis River for walleyes as well. Kimball Bay on the St. Louis River started producing nice crappies in shallow water. You'll find an assortment of lake trout, cohos, and king salmon hitting stickbaits near the surface on Lake Superior.

FAIRMONT

Leeches and livebait rigs are producing walleyes on Hall Lake in 16 to 18 feet of water. Look to the power plant area on George Lake for crappies and bluegills. Largemouth bass action has been very good on George and Hall as well.

FARIBAULT

Cannon Lake and Lake Mazaska still are producing walleyes during the evening hours with Rapalas in shallow water. On Shields Lake, leeches have worked best in 14 to 16 feet of water. Panfish have moved into their spawning areas on lakes such as Hunt, Shields, and Mazaska. The bass bite has been very good in shallow water on most lakes and you'll find plenty of small northern pike hitting minnows along the weed edges of Cedar Lake and Shields Lake.

LAKE MILLE LACS

East - Leeches and live bait rigs continue to turn numbers of walleyes on the north end sand breaks in 15 to 25 feet of water during the day. The rock points and shallow sand have provided steady walleye action during lowlight periods of the day in eight to 15 feet of water. Slip bobbers and leeches are the best bet with Big Point being a primary shallow location. Shiner minnows are a safe bet for northern pike in Isle Bay. Shallow-running crankbaits are producing smallmouth bass on the rocks.

West - Work the 14- to 20-foot breaks in St. Alban's Bay for walleyes with a Lindy Rig and leech or rainbow minnow. The mud bite continues to improve with fish being caught during the day and evening hours in 23 to 28 feet of water. Leeches also have produced the majority of fish off Sherman's Flat, Curley Flat, and the Seven Mile Flat. Slip bobbers and leeches are the way to go late in the evening off any of the points in 10 to 15 feet of water.

LEECH LAKE

Fish the windy side of most points in 12 feet of water and you'll catch walleyes with a jig and minnow. Minnows also are turning walleyes in Walker Bay over 18 to 25 feet of water.

I heard thet Bowstring and Sand are producing Walleyes.

Also a clip fro Swan Lake...

"I was up there 2 weeks ago. the bite was just starting.we did really good thursday night and friday morning.In 10 to 13 feet.on the weed line if course. our biggest was 19 inches.we had our best luck from 5 to 6 am and then again in the evening. we even caught fish after dark but they shut down at about 11 pm.
25 1/2 boy thats a nice eye. my biggest out of swan is 23 but a buddy of mine caught a 24 incher .. all CPR of course.
hope the bite stays on as we will be up over the fourth...
good luck all and dont forget about the slot"

Hope this helps!
