Can anyone help????

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!

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.

      I broke a bunch also at first  my bear paws just squeeze a little to hard! You definitely need to be carefull when putting them on to much pressure and another one bites the dust. Great bobber and concept can be used for a slip or fixed bobber just a little fragile.

      Some good sticks there!

      Looks good Royce hopefully you can put it to good use soon. The ice is sure getting thick if it keeps up I will be ordering a extension for my K drill soon or bring out the  StrikeMaster and extension.
