Hi! I am up in Minneapolish from Florida and I'm going to explore some of the famous Minnesota lakes with my girlfriend. We decided to go fishing tomorrow at the Minnetonka lake. Neither of us knows much about fishing. I used to fish a little back when I was a kid. Could someone point me to a nice spot where we could sit, relax and catch some fish as well? I am not looking for anybody's amazing spot, just a nice place that has some fish. The trip will be much better if we actually catch something. Also, what kind of fish would we be going for? I imagine I need to prepare the correct equipment. Our point of origin is Woodbury. Thank you for any information.
- Subscribe to this fishing report. Ice conditions still vary greatly from lake to lake. While seven to ten iches of pretty good ice, due to our lack of snow cover, is common, still use caution. Channel areas on Minnetonka, for example, may have much less ice than that. Walking, with or without a portable house like a Clam Fish Trap is a safe bet on Prior and Waconia, and many areas of Minnetonka. ATVs should be cautious, and I would wait to put out wheel houses, especially with another four day stretch of near-record to record temps that is upon us. Panfish are biting on Waconia and Prior. They are working deep water already, 18 to 23 feet, probably due to no snow cover on top of relatively thin ice for this time of year. Try the center of deep bays or coves, or the deep basin areas not too far from bays or shoreline points. We are catching bluegills all day, with peak time being early in the morning, and AFTER DARK. Crappies are getting nocturnal, so try staying out after dark. Small jigs with waxies or micro-sized Gulp! are catching both, and a crappie minow under a float is catching crappies and even some waleyes and pike in these same areas. Good luck, and be safe!
