Minnetonka Ice condition

Recommended Posts

MNfishtrapper

I'll be heading to Minnetonka tonight. Thinking of setting up in one of the east bays for walleys. Does anyone have an ice condition report? I'm always a little leary about driving on minnetonka. Any areas to stay away from? Or is the ice pretty thick now?

Well as of last Friday a few guys in trucks were driving right out from the access at the marina. Bunch of darn FOOLS i tell ya!! OH WAIT that was us lol. I was by there a little bit ago to scout for some spots for us later. Didnt see any trucks out in the bay further west where we were gonna try, but some trucks out where we were. small groups of houses out havnt seen any real HOT spots as I was driving. Few off lookout point. Wana meet at the same access as last time and go from there? I can bring those coordinates too. Wherever we go im not walking out. we have to be able to drive. Wheres that bay your friend was talking about?

Yah! I'm not walkin either! Walkin's for whimps! Haha JK. Well, I was thinking that my plan might be to look for some crappies early then hit the walleys after that. I hear good things about panfish in 12 to 14 FOW in Phelps bay and the spring park area. There are several places to drive on around there. There is a ramp in Carson's bay to the south but I haven't heard reports out of there. I'm sure if they're snappin in other smaller bays we could find them there too and It's close to the east end of the lake where the walley bite has been durring the night. The guy who I talked to yesterday is set up for walleys in Carmen's bay over 17 FOW. I'm not sure if there's a close ramp so I'll have to find one. If you can meet at about 4 or 430 I can be in Wayzata. Or if you come later, we could meet near spring park. It's in the middle of the lake. Or if your out already I can meet you anywhere.
