Fishing for pike-minnetonka

4 posts in this topic

With the weather being nice this weekend i was thinking of going after some pike on tonka. My question is what are some good bays that hold some decent pike?

All of them...

I usually look for some current and a weedline. There are so many channels (be sure to check the ice!) going back and forth that you should be able to find a spot with a little current and a few green weeds. Set up shop and have fun!

You could try priest bay on tonka near mound mn it's a good area. Theres a bait shop called kirby's near the access.Good luck.

there's lots of good spots the main thing is your access to the lake like the 1 guy said you got 1 by kirbys bait, and 1 in spring park,1 at the west end of halstad bay go to lake finder minnesota DNR and type in minnetonka and you can to a deapth map of the lake find a point, an edge, large flat weed area. put out 2 flags a person see what happens. i believe there is a plowed road out of the access by kibrys that goes to preist bay

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
