Crappie fishing Minnesota lakes and rivers is just one of the great fishing past-times in Minnesota. With the large variety of fish and the many places where you can wet your lure it’s pretty easy to find a place to fish. This article reviews the great fishing to be found at Minnesota’s Lake Leech.


Leech Lake is a popular vacation destination in Minnesota. Many people travel here every year to catch a variety of species. This lake is a great place to fish, especially for younger anglers. Most fishermen come here to catch walleye and there are plenty of walleye in Leech Lake of all different sizes, although, most walleye you catch will be around 14 to 20 inches long. You can also catch smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, northern pike, rock bass, perch and muskie.

leech lake fishing tipsWalleye and northern pike are abundant in this lake. Experienced fishermen should not have a problem catching walleye and pike on Leech Lake. There are flats, dropoffs, humps and other types of structure that will hold walleye and northern pike. Find some areas with some deeper weeds and you will catch both species.

Largemouth bass are not targeted by most anglers that visit Leech Lake. With the walleye and northern pike fishery, many fishermen don’t even consider fishing for largemouth bass. This lake has some nice largemouth bass. Bass in the 3 to 5 pound range are fairly common. Find sheltered bays with some weed growth and you should find some bass. Because there is less fishing pressure for largemouths, once you find them, you should get plenty of strikes.

Muskie fishing can be extremely good in the spring and the fall. Fish the shallow bays in the spring and try working crankbaits along deep weed edges in the fall and you will catch some fish.

Rock bass and perch are loaded in Leech Lake and they can be a lot of fun if you are using light tackle. Small jigs tipped with leeches and worms will produce rock bass and perch. Spinner rigs tipped with leeches will also work, especially for bigger rock bass.
