Indeed the ultimate freshwater challenge and there may be no better place to consistently catch 45"-50" fish in Minnesota.
#2 Get a Growler
Visit Leech Lake Brewing Company's off the beaten path brewery, sample their varieties and take home a few growlers. Don't forget to pick one up for #4 on my list.
#3 Walleye Fish with Artificial Lures
Trolling the basins and shorelines can be really effective for 18"-27" Walleyes and is great for spending time with family and friends. Pitching jig/plastic combos or plugs to windswept shorelines can be deadly for Walleyes too from May through October.
#4 Have a Boil
Invasive and delicious Rusty Crayfish carpet the lake bottom in certain areas and are perfect for a summertime outdoor meal.
#5 Eat Pizza
It is a toss-up between Benson's Emporium or the Village Square so it's best to sample both.
Cheers and hook-sets!
