Look for some evening walleye action in 20 to 30 feet at Gull Lake, North Long Lake, Pelican Lake, and Round Lake. Live bait rigs tipped with leeches, crawlers, or minnows are working best. Crappies are being found suspended along the established weed edges and sunfish are coming off the area's small lakes in 12 to 16 feet. Bass and northern pike also can be had on the deep weedlines.
LAKE MILLE LACS
East - Crankbaits or live bait rigs are producing some walleyes during the day on the 22- to 32- foot gravel and mud areas. Slip bobbers and leeches are working best during the evening hours on the 14- to 22- foot rocks. Muskie action has improved on the weedlines and shallow breaks with bucktails and topwater. Look for smallmouth on the rocks and under boat lifts.
West - Lindy Rigs and leeches or spinner rigs tipped with crawlers are providing daytime walleye action on the 26- to 32- foot mud areas. At night, slip bobbers and leeches are working best off the flats in 30 feet or more and on the shallow rocks. Look for smallmouth on the rock points and most weedlines in the bays are now holding northern pike and a few muskies.
LEECH LAKE AREA
Look for walleyes on the bars and shoreline breaks in 20 feet of water. Bottom bouncers and crawlers, Lindy Rigs and leeches, or a jig and minnow have all worked. There's some evening trolling action with Shad Raps or Minnow Raps in eight to 12 feet. Bass fishing has been excellent in most weedy bays and muskies continue to follow baits, but won't commit to them.
CASS LAKE AREA
Shad Raps have started producing walleyes at night on the bars of Cass Lake. The 12- to 15- foot breaklines of Cass and Pike Bay Lake also are giving up walleyes via leeches. The best perch reports are coming off the shallow sand and weed areas of Cass. Big Rice Lake and Kitchi Lake are worth noting for bluegills, while spinner rigs and minnows are triggering pike on Big Wolf Lake.
Limits of trout are being caught from shore at Manuel Pit and from boats at Huntington Pit and the Pennington Chain. Some large pike have been taken in the Sagamore Pit and smallmouth bass action at Alstead has been excellent. The weed flats of Adney Lake and Bay Lake continue to hold pike, while bass remain active in the weeds of Horseshoe, Serpent, and Clearwater lakes. Panfish have bit best during the evening hours in 12 to 15 feet at lakes Mahnomen, Black Hoof, Cedar, Clearwater, and Bass. A few walleyes have been taken during lowlight periods in 20 to 24 feet at Serpent, Rabbit, and Pelican.
CROSS LAKE AREA
The points throughout the Whitefish Chain are providing steady walleye action during lowlight periods. Lindy Rigs tipped with redtails or crawlers have worked best. There's also a crankbait bite taking place at night.
Trolling leeches, crawlers, or crankbaits has produced some walleyes on Ten Mile Lake during lowlight periods. Look for crappies and sunfish on the eight- to 12- foot cabbage beds of Birch Lake and Pleasant Lake. Bass action remains strong on the weed breaks of most lakes with plastics. The smaller lakes such as Baby, Little Boy, and Wabedo are producing muskies via white or black bucktails.
Tube jigs or minnows pitched under the floating docks on Big Sandy Lake and Lake Minnewawa has produced crappies.
