Good access to use on Minnetonka

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Any recommendations on a decent access with ample parking on Minnetonka for opener on Saturday. We will not be there real early in the morning, maybe about 7:00 a.m. I have a 1900 ProV with a bunk trailer. Any recommendations on where to launch?

Thanks for all of your help,

Chad

Grays Bay over by Wayzata.... big and new... it does get packed however!

If you are good at backing the trailer in, any ramp will do, but if you are somewhat challenged by it, Grays in not the ramp for you. The ramps are very steep and you lose sight of the trailer as you go over the edge towards the water. I've spent a lot of time waiting in line while people who aren't very experienced jack-knifed their trailers.

Other good ramps are Maxwell Bay, North Arm and Spring Park (even though the parking is pretty limited there and you may have to park at the DOT facility a couple of blocks away).

Not sure which part of the lake you're heading to, but if Gray's is full by the time you get there, try the launch next to the Wayzata Yacht club. Now that Grays is new and nice, this one fills up later in the morning

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
