Can anyone help????

3 posts in this topic

I live in Burnsville and typically make the drive up to Mille Lacs this time of year. However my wife and I just had our third child a couple of weeks ago and I am not able to go for the remainder of the year. I have been fishing Minnetonka a couple of times recently but have yet to really figure this lake out. I read all the post and would really love to go out with someone that has some experience on this lake. If anyone has an open seat I would be more than willing to pay for the gas/bait. I have more than enough equipment. I have already winterized my boat but would still like to fish for a couple more weeks. Can anyone help me out?????

P.S - I am a normal guy that has plenty of fishing experience so it's not like you would have to bait my hook for me (lol).

Thanks in advance

I too have winterized my boat. However, if you are unable to drive up to Mille Lacs. you really ought to try the St. Croix. The Walleyes and Sauger are hot right now and it is only about 45 minutes from where you are. There is excellent shore fishing around Hudson or anywhere from Taylors Falls on down to the Hastings/Prescott area. Check the St. Croix Forum. You also have a chance for some bonus White Bass and they are always fun. Smallies are hitting like they are suicidal.

Check the St. Croix forum and ask where to buy bait. There are several places from Stillwater omn down to Hastins to buy it. Plus this time of year you won't end up being crowded off the lake like you can at Minnetonka. Good Luck! Tight Lines!

Thank you so much for the information. I really appreciate it!!! I think I will give it a shot this weekend. If you ever want to tag along or your going to be out there let me know. It's always nice having a little company, especially fishing from shore!

      thanks for the info, we will wait and see too? not worth it. will walk out if we have too. much more fun getting there the day before. was up two weekends ago and had 16" of ice. they say 20 " at the sight of the tournament. Hopefully the colder weather will help

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?

      Yes.  On the north end.
