Education on Minnewashta

4 posts in this topic

I see on the DNR lakefinder that minnewashta is loaded with pike. Couple questions...1) is there a fee for the access (if so, how much)? 2) It also appears that there is alot of boat traffic on the lake, should I be saving this lake for a rainy day or sometime in the fall?

JB--

Yes it's loaded with pike, although most are hammerhandles. It can be a blast though, with enough numbers to keep you busy. It can be a great bass lake mixed in too, with very small numbers of elusive smallies out there. I've never managed one, but I know of people that claim of footballs out there.

Its also easy enough to fish, find a weedline this time of year and cast the edges, you'll hit em. The boat traffic can get busy, but not as nuts as you might think. Good luck.

I'm guessing the smallies got in there from minnetonka somehow?

I wish fishing it during the week was an option. I think I'll wait for a cool/cloudy day to hit it up.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
