Minnetonka near Mound?

4 posts in this topic

I'm going out on Minnetonka for the first time this weekend (exciting). I'll be putting in near my dad's place in Mound off 15 by Phelps Bay. Any recommendations for the surrounding area? We'll be targeting crappies and possibly some largemouth, smallies, and walleyes. It will be an all day event. I have a smaller 14ft with a 15hp, so I CAN cover some water if need be. Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Try Black Lake/Bay, its small and sheltered from the big cruisers, and some good crappie action.

I didn't get over to black today but we had a blast around big island :-)

Trolled a bit but no bites.

how did you do? and how was the launch?

I was able to launch at the small landing down past Al and Alma's and park at my dad's, so launch traffic was not an issue whatsoever...lucky me!

We hit some bays and channels and a few smaller bridges. Rounded up plenty of sunnies and gills, couple crapps, and one 17" eye. Did more cruising around than anything else....it was a fun day on the water.

      Went up to lake for week of fishing fished Adrian's  Morris point and Long point  6 days on lake. Fished Morris 3 days 18 ft of water west of resort. Did very well on good sized 16 to 18 in. walleyes. Slid out into 22 ft one day and did o.k. there too. Long point was just as good to me if not better fished 30 ft there. We had fish for a few meals and we brought our fish home. Didn't seem to matter what you had on. I used white glow  and pink glow.Sometimes minnow and bobber worked and sometimes jigging worked best. In my opinion fishing was good had no trouble catching fish.
