Winni Vs. Mille Lacs

Recommended Posts

Minnetonka

My Brother (Brainerd) and I (Twin Cities) want to hook up for a mid March perch trip. We have hit Winni in late Jan. and had great luck. I hate to drive that far and am contimplating hitting Mille Lacs instead. (south side) can anyone tell me how Mille Lacs stacks up against Winni for mid March perch? Is Winni that much better that I need to drive another couple of hours?

Stay with the winner. Mille Lacs is really tough this year. Many YOY perch running around, you might get a few keepers, but I would really stick with Winnie.

Plus if you had good luck in Jan, I would be you would have a really great time here in March once the weather begins to warm!

Thanks for the info Grabs. I will take the advise and head to Winni. I am now heading out the door to chase crappies on Minnetonka.

I agree with grabs the perchin has been very slow on ML and I have heard a lot of good reports from Winnie.As long as your going that far you can fish perch on winnie during the day then go 90 minutes north to url for some slab crappies at night.

I could use some info on crappies, lake access, etc etc for Tonka.

I live in Hopkins so I would like to try and get out there a few times before I head to LOW on the 14th.

Go to Winnie. The 3-4 times up we have gotten plenty.

Two of iced about 20 crappies last night. Only 8 were kept these were 9-10 inches. The crappies we found were in 29 feet of water on a mud bottom bay. The fish were mostly 2-4 feet off the bottom but with the vex we marked fish all the way up to 10 feet down and they seemed to be the larger fish. A good access point is the boat access on Spring Park bay. This is next to the Hennepin County Water Patrol headquarters. Shoreline bait is accross the street from the access and they can give you good information. Try Phelps Bay which is just around the corner from Spring Park Bay and you can drive all the way on a plowed road.

Send me an e-mail, if we can hook up and fish great. Even though I live on the lake, with a wife and three kids in activities, it gets tough to find the time to sneak out.
