Fishing Report, March 19th 2018

Posted by

What a beautiful weekend we had! Sunburn usually isn't a big concern while ice fishing, but last weekend it was! While there were a good number of fishermen out over the weekend, it was surprisingly quiet for as nice of a weekend it was. The fish were biting very well!

Leech Lake was producing great Jumbo Perch action and they were finding them up in Walker Bay by Sand Point, Cedar Point and Agency Bay. We also heard of great action on the south end of the main lake, as well as up around Goose Island. The jumbos for the most part have not moved way up shallow yet, but you can find some fish up there and some on the transition areas in 6'-14'. Whole fatheads on jigging spoons were the bait of the weekend, and minnow heads worked too - the perch didn't seem too excited about waxies.

Panfish have been doing well on many of the area lakes including Birch, Mule, Webb, and many of the smaller lakes. Sunfish in the morning have been cruising the shallow weed flats. Be sure to have fast falling jigs because they seem to come through in pairs or small groups that you need to take advantage of while they are under your hole. Waxies and red maggies have been working well. Crappie are still working the deeper edges, and suspended off over deeper water. There has been a good early morning bite as well as an evening bite. The fish seem to be coming through pretty high, and they have been very aggressive. Can't beat a crappie minnow!

Tullibee action was starting to pick up with the sunshine melting everything on Saturday, and as the snow melts it should get even better. It doesn't look like the forecast calls for too warm of temps, but we should see some serious improvement from last weekend even to this coming weekend. The Tullibee fishing always gets better and better the later it gets.
