State fishing report

  • Updated: July 30, 2013 - 9:28 PM

Alexandria area: Walleye action has been a bit slow but a few anglers are catching some on Reno, Carlos and Darling at 20-30 feet using nightcrawlers and spinners. Bass are biting well on the chain (Lake Le Homme Dieu, Carlos, Geneva, and Darling) at 10-15 feet using plastic baits.

Big Stone Lake: Anglers are pulling crankbaits at 10-12 feet near Kight Island and Manhattan Island for walleye and perch action. Other spots for good walleye and perch action have been the Windmill Reef area, Bayview Point and GrapeVine reef, jigging or using slip bobbers.

Chisago City area: The best lakes for walleye action are North and South Center using shiners at 8-12 near sandbars during the evenings. Chisago and South Lindstrom lakes have produced the best bass action near weed lines using spinner baits. Northerns are hitting on sucker minnows on North Center Lake. Panfish action is best on South Lindstrom and Chisago.

Lake Mille Lacs: The best spots for good walleye action appears to be on mud and gravel bars on parts of the lake such as Four-mile Gravel, Sloppy Joes Reef, Greg’s Flat and Seguchie Flat using leeches, crawlers or minnows at deeper depths. Smallmouth bass are active in the afternoons, as are northerns and muskies.

Leech Lake: A recent cooler weather pattern somewhat hampered walleye action, but anglers are catching walleyes on the main lake rock reefs at 14-20 feet using spinners with night crawlers. Anglers can also try No. 7 Shad Raps during the evenings at 9-12 feet on parts of the lake such as Sucker or Traders Bay. Muskies are taking smaller bucktails or cowgirl baits on the Grandview Flats, North Bar, West Bar and Portage Bay. Shingobee and Pumphouse Bay are producing good sunfish action using nightcrawlers.
