  The only way to say it is WOW, the walleye fishing on our northern minn. lakes  is unbelievable right now. Mille-lacs, Leech, Cass, Winni, and Lake of the Woods are all on a fantastic bite. Mille-lacs deep gravel bars on the SE side of the lake are putting out huge amounts of eaters to big fish, put on a 3-way swivel rig with a spinner and a crawler or run some lead-core with some #5 or #7 shad raps or Salmo baits and you'll have some fun. At Leech pick out some structure on the windy side of the lake get in about 13-18ft of water with some live bait rigs with some crawlers,leeches or bigger chub and you'll have some stories to tell. The same techniques as Leech will work on Cass and Winni. On Lake of the Woods, deep rock humps out in the Garden Island or Long pt. areas 28-32ft of water with a jig and a minnow are unbeatable right now, for daily updates on LOW the best info I've found is at Wigwam you can sneak away for at least a weekend to hit one of these lakes you'll have some of the best walleye fishing of the year.
