Casting Shallow and Cashing in- October Walleyes and Muskies

Expansive flats full of yellow perch and crayfish surround Leech Lake, and at times, harbor big Muskies and large schools of feeding Walleyes.

October is a great time to check out those shallow "spring" spots once again as cooling oxygen rich shallows teem with life. 

     Hooking and landing a bruiser Walleye in 5 feet of water can be a real battle on light gear.

                   This 2' Walleye was caught more than a mile from water deeper than 8'.

               It has been awesome weather this fall in Leech Land...surely we will soon pay for this.

                                                             Cheers and hook-sets!
