I’m thinking of trying fishing on crystal bay on Minnetonka, but I don’t see any public access to it. Is there a way to drive on to crystal bay ?

There is not a public access directly located on that particular bay.  You could access it from another bay and then travel over to it.  I would be very cautious about driving a car through a channel though.  There is current there and all the salt from the bridge above gets plowed onto the ice there.  Lots of cars go through those channels.

Isn't there still a winter only access on the west bay of Crystal a little east of the channel into North Arm?

Yes, there used to be anyway.

Absolutely, DO NOT drive a vehicle under any of the bridges/channels on Minnetonka.  These spots have very thin ice. Some of them I wouldn't even walk through yet alone drive through.  Already two vehicles down this year from attempting this.

      momma insisted on heading out to Dino's for there sunday brunch, so of course that meant a drive past the lakes. the ice is starting to turn dark. noone at the river access and becker looked abondoned, so did horseshoe for that matter. there where a few out from the landing on eden lake, but there were 4 trucks out on cedar island..just where the lake opens up. there goofy!!!   there was 1 small vehicle out on long and a few wheelers on the south end but noone out by the island by cozy's.  browns had some wheelers out.

      The 30.20 barometer probably didn’t help much.  But it also might be worth trying shallower?   10 feet seemed to be good in the past week on a few lakes and have read here that even shallower has been doing well for some.

      I went out of the Federal Dam landing yesterday on Gull.  It was in good shape and we had 22 inches of ice where we fished.  I thought about going out again this afternoon but wind gusts to 25 don’t thrill me on bigger lakes with no real snow cover.

      I’ve only fished Kab once but I can imagine it behaves a lot like other shield lakes.  Try to spend time near current and use large baits; either live or artificial.  I’d never go pike fishing in that area without some F18 Rapalas.  The good old Original Floater in silver/black back being a top color choice.

      well nothing is biting, I did catch 2 very small perch in 15 FOW, had all kinds of activity in deeper water, but no takers. my locator would lite up with fish, but nothing bites.

      It's just about go time smurf 😀 I didn't wish for this weather but there won't b any complaints about it for sure. Been a great ice season but honestly ready for it to be over. I  plan on picking up the boat soon getting it ready and doing a little pool 4 fishing and maybe a rainy river run yet. Probably got a couple ice outings left next week maybe some last minute runs to ottertail county. Had a epic day with some buds today locally, fish were right under the ice was a blast 👍
