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?

5 bucks a day, fish it during the weekday, mornings.

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.

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.
