Leech Lake Mid-Summer Muskie Update

The ball is definitely rolling! Casting for muskies has been really fun the past week, and some fish were caught trolling in the weeks prior. I'm predicting a good casting bite now to November. If you think you might want to get out on Leech Lake this year, give me a shout. I still have some availability each month, I would love to have you aboard! 

Isaac from Texas got on the board early during his first ever attempt at muskie fishing.

He then upped-the-ante with this beast! 
Congrats on a real beauty!!

Here is Thomas from South Dakota with his first muskie, caught during less than ideal conditions.

We had a decent trolling bite dialed-in the last week of June. Since then, it has been all casting.

Fellow guide Steve Nosbisch jumped in with me one morning and scored this heavy fish on a topwater. A really nice Leech fish! 

We typically don't even take these little guys out of the water. This one was so striking,
 I just had to take a quick pic.

We are getting a few nice pike too.

9 yr olds can catch muskies too!

Mark got to pose with his best Leech Lake muskie while fishing during great conditions.

Cheers and hook-sets!
