Lake Minnetonka

4 posts in this topic

If a guy had wanted to go fishing on Lake Minnetonka for the first time, what would you all recommend to him as far as a decent launch, place to fish and so on...I fished that lake with my Dad when I was a kid, so I know there are plenty of fish in that lake and all the bays, but I don't know where to start..I need some direction...not specific honey holes or anything like that. Just don't want to get in over my head so to speak!!!

Grays bay access is really nice - only a couple yrs old now. 3 ramps and 300 parking spots, with public restroom.

Take 394 West to 101 South exit. 101 brings you right to the launch. Now 101 has or had construction on it - it could be done now - I don't know for certain. (FYI)

As for fishing - what are you after? The weeds are really thick now so weed edges should be a good place to start. Maybe those sunken reefs in Browns bay if you're after walleyes.

At dusk the walleyes should work their ways to the shallows, find an inside turn that can corral them suckers and hit em with a bobber. Um it works for ice fishing grin.gif that's about the only time I chase eyes.

The problem with Gray'S Bay is boats. I like Upper Lake better. Lunch at Maxwell Bay Spring Park , Mound

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
