Holy Mackerel did we put the hurt bag on some monster walleyes on Saturday. I had my buddies Dave, Randy, and Steve out just for a quick afternoon of fishing and it was on! We were fishing Leech Lake in Walker, MN and man do I love this lake. It's just that good! I mean the wind was blowing 20 30 mile per hour out of the Northwest and it was tough to keep things straight but it was big fish after big fish. It was so nuts that we had lines, motors and everything else tangled up! It was awesome! Yep it was awesome because the fish were smashing our red tail chubs! Ok maybe the tangles weren't awesome but the tangles were only happening because the crazy wind and the huge walleyes doing battle with us. We were fishing with Bigtooth Tackles Walleye Rig tipped with a Red Tail or Creek Chub in about 25 feet. Our set up was the usual St. Croix Legend Tournament 7' Rig Rod with Sufix 832 Braid and Suffix Flouro Leader Suffix Fluorocarbon Line. The walleyes were scattered on most of the structure so covering water was key put it seems like when we ran into one there was another one that was close by.
Ok so I have mentioned this before but if you guys are looking for a get away you should really take a look at Chase on the Lake in Walker, MN. Seriously there is everything there from amazing food, to great shopping, spa, golf, biking, bowling, and the best fishing in Minnesota on Leech Lake. Check them out at www.chaseonthelake.com.

The boys even let me drop a line down for a little bit and look what happened. Yep another monster walleye. Leech Lake is on fire! It's a joy to be a Leech Lake Fishing Guide when they are biting like this.
