Central Air Water Leak HELP!!!

I noticed yesterday a puddle of water under my horizontal upflow air conditioner / furnace. The unit has been running a lot the last week due to the hot temps, the air comes out cold. I was first suspicious of the drain line leaking or a blockage but I blew it out and it drips out into my sump pit at a decent rate. The only place I can find a leak is on the bottom of the enclosure panel near the drain line, it only drips while it is running and yesterday I left the fan on all day and noticed the leak nearly stopped all together so I switched the fan back to auto today and the leak is back in full swing. I changed the filter yesterday to see if it was a flow issue but it dident seem to change anything. I have included some pictures to better explain. Any help is much appreciated, I am out of ideas, the next step is to just call the pros.

I think you answered your own question - the drain line is leaking (near where it connects to the condensate pan). Or the pan itself is leaking.

While you fix the leak, clean the A-coil.
