Do the tighten up- Leech Lake walleyes in May

We have been catching fish on spots all over Leech Lake this week with the best bite still coming on a light jig and minnow in 9-14 feet of water. 

We are seeing a really healthy average size with most fish being in the 17"-25" range.

Dragging a light jig along at .6 mph can be really effective. 

Limits and many slot fish each day has been the standard. 

We actually ran through all of our bait one day after boating 40+ fish. This was no problem though as Chris wanted to catch some smallmouths on artificials to end the day. 

This competitive Nebraska group mopped up on the 'eyes on Wednesday.  

The fish didn't cooperate quite as well on Thursday but the quality of the fish coupled with perfect weather made up for it. 

Cheers and hook-sets!
