Minnetonka and St. Anthony Main Area's

Recommended Posts

Eds

Two very different places, but just got a new job in Minnetonka Area and moved to the St. Anthony Main (NE) area. I have not fished nearly as much as I would have liked, so just looking for thoughts on places to go over lunch hour in Minnetonka and or places back by where I live? Thanks in advance.

There's always something fishy between bays and under bridges on the numerous bays on Lake Minnetonka. This would be your best bet for gamefish or panfish. A couple of good ones are the Gray's Bay Bridge, the Narrows and the St. Alban's/Excelsior Bay Bridge.

Good luck.

Thanks that's a good start. Any other smaller lakes? I work right off of Londonderry Rd and that Opus business center.

How about NE/ St. Anthony area, anybody have good luck shore fishing? I probably just need to head out and explore.

The closest lake to you would be Shady Oak lake, which has nice populations of northerns and bass. Most run small but they should be easy enough to hook into. I believe you can fish along shore for most of the lake.

Bryant isn't too far either, and you could probably fish around the access there. Or a little farther down the road you could check out the public docks at Staring Lake in EP. Once again, smaller pike and bass.

That should be a start...good luck.

If you stand on the Stone Arch Bridge and look down into the river in the slow areas, you'll see the channel cats sitting on the bottom. It'll give you a good clue for where to toss your bait. There's all kinds of fish in the Mississippi...just toss in your lure and see what kind of fish or otherwise comes back.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.

      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
