Closest public boat launch to Maynards

4 posts in this topic

I have never been to tonka before and need to find a public boat launch as close as possible to Maynards (excelsior bay). Can anyone help? Please provide road numbers/highways or even directions from shakopee. Thanks!

p.s Mods, feel free to move this to wherever if you don't feel it belongs in open water

The public access on Gray's Bay might be your best bet, it is a large and crowded access. It's on Hwy 101 to the east end of the lake, should be easy to find on a map or on-line.

Gray's is your best option. After that your otions are MAxwell and North Arm accesses off Hwy 51.

Comming from Shakopee I always (the 4 or 5 times I've been on Tonka) drive to the north arm, even when fishing the south side. The first time I used that ramp it was half empty even when others were full so I just keep going back out of habbit. Maybe others can chime in on this, but the North Arm ramp always seems to have open spots, at least during "fishing" hours.

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
