Leech Lake ice conditions are moving along in the right direction for much of the lake. The main lake has up to 14 inches of ice in certain spots but still has a as little as 8 inches with pockets of slush in others. Walker Bay has 6 to 10 inches, however there is heavy slush towards the North end by Sand Point.
Smaller bodies of water in the Remer, Longville, Hackensack, Walker, Park Rapids area have snow covered ice with a considerable amount of slush pockets up to 8” thick. Whereas the ice itself is varying anywhere from 4-12 inches so take heed and use extreme caution when venturing out.
The walleye are aggressive and the bite is in full swing right now! Jigging Spoons tipped with a minnow head has been the ticket this past week, but don’t forget the dead stick as that has been bringing in a few too, especially later in the evening after “prime-time” passes.
