Minnetonka report 1-9-09

We fished browns from 4pm to 10pm. All we pulled was two small eyes from a 17 foot break near spirit island. I personally didn't even mark any fish. Anyone have any luck?

I also fished Browns last night from 3pm until 8am today and found little action at 35'. One 13" at 2a.m. on a fathead and chartruese hook.. that was it except for a few marks on the vex. Quite a few groups of houses on Browns last night...any other reports? Hoping to do some searching this afternoon.

Good luck

Was out all day yesterday and did pretty well. I brought home 15 nice sun fish and at about 2:30 switched to walleye fishing and after about two hours of dealing with the pesky perch I caught two nice 17 inch wallleyes between 4:30 and 5:00 and unfortunatly I had to pack up at 5:15 to get home. Caught the walleyes in about 20ft of water.

Do not give up! Fishing is like poker as long as you have a minnow and a chair you are still in!

Good Luck Fishing!

Tried out on St Alban's Bay this morning. About 22 ft of water. Tied into a nice pike, got him up the hole, then my jig popped right out of his mouth. I thought about grabbing him by the mouth with my bare hands, then thought better of it. Nothing spectacular, but I would have liked at least a picture!

Wayzata bay from 3PM-1AM on friday and ended up with around 20 small eyes, and a dozen medium sized perch. On to a new spot to find a better class of walleye.

Thats a shame, don't be afraid to grab the pike under the gills or by the back of the head and lay him on the ice until you can get a better grip. Sounds like you could have used a buddy assisting you with this guy.

i fish in a buddies rikety trailer in echo bay jusy south of big island. We were doing pretty well for the first part of the season just doing tip ups for pike but now for the last 2 weeks its completely shut down out there? We did snag a nice 5 lbs walleye though. Trying find a new spot now. Does anyoe have any ideas where to go? He likes the big island area because he lives in tonka bay right by the lake. Its like pullin teeth to get him to move confused!

I just fished the lake the first time yesterday and drove by an access to browns bay. It was off MN Hwy 15(shoreline dr), right off the side of the road. I was heading west on US Hwy 12, then exited on MN 15 west. After a couple miles on 15 the lake access was on the left side of the road and there is a green browns bay sign near it. THere is a good path out to a village in the bay.

People are driving ALL over that lake, it was completely criss-crossed with tracks last night. We accessed the lake in Wayzata but drove close to 3 miles before we found a spot we liked. Still got skunked though.

18-19" of ice on West Arm, Phelps, & The Gap.

Lots of Ice. Watch out for snowmobiles and fast cars!!

I would get to browns bay from the Wayzata access.

If you have any questions about ice thickness out there...drill a hole!

Fished for crappies Saturday evening. Bite was slow n steady from 5:30-7:30. We were in 25'. Most aggressive fish were between 8-13' of water.

Caught close to 20 in total. Everything was 9" or less with the exception of a 14" slab. Small glow jigs w/ small crappie minnows worked best.

U can tag along this Sat Honda4life. I caught 2 lil eyes and a lil pike on Sat night. Fished from 4-10 in Browns. Going to a new spot next time. This is the year of new spots.

My buddies out on some hump caught and kept 3. Biggest was a 20"er.

I'm going out of Wayzata beach along with everyone else. Browns bay has a winter access on 15 but you should have 4x4 as it's a steep decline/incline.

I was on Crystal both sat. and sun. Lots of ice lots of vehicles. Only 1 flag, just a bump and run. The Pike fishing has been real slow compared to normal. I did get 7-8 good gills each day so that made for a nice meal.

Must have been on the Excelsior to Wayzata Ice Freeway. Those people are so stupid, they literally go like 55 all the way across.

I was hoping for more snow to keep them from this shortcut.

Right across the street from the marina is a parking lot for fishing the bridge. I parked there and walked out. It looks like you can drive out of the marina (I didn't really check it out), but they have a hockey rink cleared out right there so try not to mess it up.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves
    • Andre.y
      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      Now you know darn well your not in Boston....unless there's a Boston in russia?😂😂😂 How's life over there?💩.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
