Leech Lake FLW tournament

This has been one tremendous week of walleye fishing on Leech Lake.  This lake is producing some spectacular walleye fishing with fish of all sizes.  The protected slot limit is over 18 inches and under 26, but the numbers and size are really a bunch of fun! 

With the first two days of the tournament over, I am sitting in 7th place.  I'm happy about that given all of the fish I have had to release.  They are a lot of fun to catch, but frustrating for a tournament where we need to find the perfect length fish.

I've been primarily pulling spinners/crawlers and bottom bouncer for the "under" fish and working deeper fish with Lindy Rigs/NO-SNAGG sinkers.  All fish seem to be on the top edge or right at the base of the breakline.

I'm pretty tired now as it is late at night and i've finally gotten all of my tackle/boat preparation done for the day.  The work never seems to end.
