On Leech Lake, the bigger the wind, the bigger the bite! Battle the windy shorelines and windy reefs and experience aggressive Walleye fishing. These bonz'eye Walleyes will smash an aggressively ripped Jig. Gulp shines when they are really chewing as it isn't worth the time or money to bait up some days. Life vests and high powered trolling motors are a must and don't be afraid to drop the hook when you locate fish. When there are whitecaps rolling I swap the galvanized anchor for my 30# Navy anchor. It allows me to fish a short anchor line and put the boat right where it needs to be. Rain suits are a must too, they aren't just for rain days. Don't wait until your clothes are half soaked to put on the foulies. When the wind blows cold, go for the gold!
