Minnetonka Walleye

5 posts in this topic

Hello everyone, wondering if anyone is willing to share some tatics from shore as to how to get some walleyes at Minnetonka. I've been fishing in excel bay and tried just about everything, maybe its my luck or location, but i can't seem to catch any walleyes. Any advice, suggestions etc would be most appericated. I'd go to Mil Lacs...but don't know where theres good shore fishing...any suggestion on that would be welcomed too smile.gif

Thanks!

Shore fishing for walleye gets better in the fall when boat traffic drops. The only productive areas for shore fishing I know of are channel areas around sunset or later or very early in the morning. Gray's, the Narrows, Halsted's, Phelps and Emerald channels are the best.

Gray's should be fine to fish under the bridge. Good luck!

Went back to st.alban bay, no walleyes frown.gif but this guy was pulling in some nice bass. Some thing about the color green seems to be doing awesome at Minnetonka. Green spinerbaits for nice pike, and green/firetiger rapala divers for bass. Wish my green jig pulled some walleyes...hehe

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      It's pretty driveable out there.

      I must have missed it, but where are the fish pictures?

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
