'tis on like Genghis Khan - Early June Walleyes on Leech Lake

Genghis Khan raided innocent populations, conquering without end, and showing no mercy. Early summer Walleyes scatter and seek out new territory upon reef, mud-flat and tranquil shoreline in search of protein. Molting Crayfish, Shiner runs, the Yellow Perch spawn, midge hatches, Hexagenia mayfly hatch etc. etc.  Meanwhile, anglers compete with these throngs of prey items and try to keep up with these hungry nomads. Some say "transition period" while others claim "they aren't biting". I say, arm thyself with nightcrawler, leech, minnow and crankbait, and chase down these nomadic denizens. I say be swift and be prepared to "leave fish to find fish".

Each day offers a different experience. One day the harvest is robust, and the next, 
 slot fish rule the day. 

The weather has really been something. If you don't like it, wait ten minutes.

    I had the pleasure to pinch hit for Leisure Outdoor Adventures on Tuesday, a class bunch of fellas. Thanks guys!

Here is a pair of over-slot fish that were the highlight of this day. 

Cheers and hook-sets!
