River FIshing

While fishing from the shores of the river I ventured out through quite a bit of mud and weeds to get to a small lake I saw on Google earth. Sadly I could not fish it from shore because of how shallow it was at this time of year. But i am looking forward to getting back there in the boat and seeing what kinda of fish make their homes in this waterfowl paradise.

 But while the lake may have been a bust, the river was pretty fun this week.Throughout the whole week we caught a couple northern's, dogfish, bass, and a lot of sheep head. The biggest of the bass was the one pictured above although most of them were closer to the size of the one below.

Leech Lake Sunset

                                 The sunset over leech lake was fantastic as we trolled for walleyes.

Successful Day on the Water

Walleye fishing on Leech lake was pretty successful this weekend, with a couple keepers and a lot of them that weren't withing the slot limits. We also caught a lot of Northerns and this unexpected Musky! The Musky was measured at 34 inches and was estimated to weigh 20-25 pounds. It was my second musky of my life, the first being in 2008.
