Fishing Tips

Some anglers stay on some of the lakes in the Hackensack area even though they may spend a day or 2 fishing on Leech Lake. The smaller lakes give anglers the ability to fish on windy days, while Leech Lake may be too rough for some boats when the wind picks up.  Anglers target muskie, northern pike, walleye, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass and panfish in the area lakes.  Take a look at our Hackensack, MN Fishing Tips page for more fishing information.
