Minnetonka Big Island

8 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anybody has been driving mid size pickups out this way, and also is the best access to get to the east side of the island out of carsons bay?

Thanks,

~trout

Save your time there on that spot!! It's a dead sea right now unless you want to catch hundreds of suspended potato chip sunnies.

Old report from big island (few weeks ago)

As mentioned, lots of small panfish. I tried in the weeds and out deeper, never came up with a good one but it was lots of action. I managed to get a big LM bass to hit my jig (watched on the camera), fought it for a while but unhooked at the hole. Also saw numerous northerns, and a muskie. Managed one small walleye at sunset out at the break sitting right next to the weedline, which at that time was about 16 FOW.

Stay away from the channels and permanent docks.

Drove out last night - plenty thick, but yes avoid channels.
