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

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
