Look below at what some of our guests have caught, now it's your turn...
Each year the DNR does fish census by netting in Minnesota lakes to determine their conservation and stocking needs. Most lakes have a slot limit of four walleyes under 18 inches and one over 26 inches. The 18 to 26 inch walleyes are the best reproducers. The census on Benedict Lake has consistently shown plenty of walleyes between 18 and 26 inches! Therefore the limit is 6 walleyes, 5 up to 19.5 inches and one 20 inches or more.
Benedict Lake is closer to many of the best fishing spots on Leech Lake. We are connected by channel to Leech Lake from the east on the big lake over the big water. You can travel to these spots through more protected water when others cannot get on the lake due to windy conditions. You can almost always fish Benedict Lake when it's windy!
