Fishing near hopkins

4 posts in this topic

I posted this in the shore fishing forum as well but no repsonse. So thought I'd try it here. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me of a place where a guy can do some shore fishing near hopkins/ minnetonka... other than lake minnetonka?

Thanks

You may want to try Shady Oak or Bryant Lake. Both have shore access.

Thanks JoJo for the tip, I tried shady oak today and caught 5 crappies and 3 sunnies... not a bad morning on shore. Except the wind :-)

Shady oak is great. I got a nice 30" northern there and lots of sunies to play with. You can come a little east and try some of the metro lakes, Harriet, Calhoun and Isles. Lots of good shore fishing there.

This is good too,

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
