Just wondering if anyone has been out. Thinking of getting out there to chase a few pike. Wondering how water is for clarity.

Any information would be great. Thanks

i always get them confused?!?!

i heard there is a minnewaska but i dont know where it is...

if you are talking minnewashta, the pike bite is always good in the morning till about 1pm along the weedlines with big shiners and tipups.

the slush death trapdoor ice is probally locked up by now, i was out there 3 weeks ago or so and it was freaky nuts ice!

im not sure. I have always wanted to spear it, but never had time to get out there even though its right next to my house. I have talked to alot of people about it, and they say out in front of the landing, or way on the south end of the lake.

you should be able to drive out by now i would think.

I went out there and cut some holes to check the water clarity, and it was about 15 inches.

Minnewaska is in Glenwood I think. Minnewashta access is a state park access and as mentioned before, if you don't park on the ice, you'll need a day pass. I haven't been there this year, but normally there's a road from the access that goes north for a bit, then turns thru the narrows to the west. You'll see where everybody is fishing then. I wouldn't walk it - maybe lazy. I would stay on the roads...there are bad spots out there past where you'll see everybody fishing.

lots of luck

The park is a REGIONAL park and is part of the Carver County park district, not a state park.

I've fished out there a few times. This season. Its day to day. Some guys get a few others say forget it and run to 'tonka. If your out there this weekend, just look for the ice house with a bunch drunks hangin around it. They seem to do pretty well.

cause they put their 22' trailer house shack out there "on" the spot and fish all the time, i think they are locals, and hang out there all time.

wish i was in their crew, looks like fun!

i have been staying away because that ice in the bay is [PoorWordUsage] until late in the year.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.
    • ANYFISH2
      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!
    • monstermoose78
      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.
    • Rick
      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
