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.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
