minnetonka walleye ??????

Recommended Posts

I am fairly new to walleye fishing on minnetonka. Need advise on what structure to fish for them this time of year. I like going in the evening (about 7pm till 1 or 2 in the morning a lot less traffic and quiter). Are they going to be in shallow or deep structure. I usually fish with lindy rigs. Would rapalas work better if so what depth range. i read and hear alot about tonka never have made it down there. how would you get there from 169 and 55. how early or late would one go i have map which areas would work best or presentations. I usually go out of greys close to home. Any information in the right direction would be much appreciated.

My approach is weedlines. Ive been fishing deep humps, shallow humps, and long and short deep points, and the best producer is a weedline that drops off deep from shore. i try to find the deepest ones and i work the area where the weeds go from super thick to hardly nothing on the deep side. The ones ive been using is about 12.5 to 14 fow with a lot of scattered rocks and boulders. Oh and i usually fish the Westside. Bait of choice being the classic jig n minnow, chartruese or orange. I normally get out around 6:30-10:00pm. I have fished long after dark but not long enough to find that second bite.

Oh yeah... with this approach i get alot of snakes.

good luck

i would strongly recommend to troll the rock to sand transitions fast about 2.5 miles per hour and stair step your lures while trolling. what this does is it triggers mor fish have a lure 5 feet from the bottom and then 10 or 15 feet from the bottom. because a fish is going to be mor elikely to come up for a lure rather than come 2 or 3 feet down for that bait. this tactic is deadly for 2 reasons. first of all walleyes are schooling up and spread out all over the lake right now looking for suspended bait fish. so they are actively feeding suspended. and second of all you will cover a ton more water using this tactic also, walleyeJoe

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.

      Pulled my house a couple of days ago, but there are still a few fish biting at some spots. Very slow for me! Good roads out there yet as we plowed them after the last snow. Cliff

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
