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

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
