This was a fun shoot from last summer on Leech Lake with Chef Yia Vang. Catch and cook crayfish and walleyes, Yia cooks up some amazing delights.

Leech Lake Muskie Report- Summer 2021

The Leech Lake muskie bite has been pretty darn good over the past few weeks, with many successful catches and healthy releases. I managed to get a few shots of releases. Much more to come! 

*Note: I have quite a few October muskie dates open yet. Give me a shout if you'd like to chase the biggest fish in Leech Lake. 

Cheers and hook-sets,

Leech Lake Smallmouth Are So Much Fun

 The Smallmouth Bass fishing is getting better every year here at Leech Lake. I do a handful of Largemouth and Smallmouth trips each year, and they are some of my favorite days on the water. I recently had an hour and a half to scout out some of these scrappie fighters. 

Cheers and hook-sets,

Chomping at the Bit- Leech Lake Fishing 2021

 Are you as excited as I am? 

2020 turned out to be a banner year for me here at Outright Angling Leech Lake, despite the challenges the world faced. Outdoor activities were on the rise, and I expect that to continue into 2021. 

I'm looking forward to the May 15th Walleye/Bass opener, as well as the June 5th Muskie opener. Dates are starting to fill-up so please give me a call if you are interested in seeing my approach to Leech Lake fishing. As some of you know, I'm not tight lipped. Teaching people seasonal locations and techniques is all part-and-parcel to the guide trips that I offer....that, and the chance to catch the biggest fish that swim in Leech Lake of course. 

Please shoot me a call, text or email if you have any questions, or if you'd like to lock-down a date or two and explore one of the best fishing lakes in the USA. 

Cheers and hook-sets, 

Capt. Phil Bauerly

August Calendar Update

Thanks for stopping by! I promise to update this blog with pics and reports soon, we are having an unbelievable season here on Leech Lake. 

Thanks for all of the calls, texts and emails. I've now booked August and September up solid, but still have a few remaining weekday dates for October. I'm also starting to book a few ice trips, and 2021 walleye and muskie trips, it's not too soon to book those prime summer dates. Thanks for all the support, and thanks for fishing! 

Cheers & hook-sets,  
Capt. Phil
