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'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
