Shore Fishing Lake Minnetonka


Recommended Posts

I've been hearing how good the fishing was there but I haven't had the chance to head out there yet. My question is where do you go to have luck shore fishing? I've pulled up a map and the lake is a fair size, a lot of ground to cover with only limited time available, any one what to give up a honey hole, or a hot spot? Any help would be great.

What ya going after? But any channel right now mainly at dusk or night time will produce some walleye's. Most are using slip bobbers or lindy rig's with leech or fathead.

You can fish overnight, although use caution as far as where you park. Some lots allow overnight parking and others don't. Right now you'll want to use lighted bobbers and a fathead. If possible stick under street lights, but don't be afraid to work the channel mouths either.

Thanks for the tips, I would like to go for crappies but if the chance is there I'll try some fat heads for a walleye any day.

I use fatheads for crappies all the time. Bring a mix and you'll be set for whatever.

I wasted a bunch of time looking for a channel to shorefish from last night. Everything I passed didn't really seem like a good place to park, not to mention a ton of overgrowth around the bridges impeding my getting to the water. Does anyone have any recommendations for loaction? I tried on 19 and Shoreline dr, and also the canal between priest's and halsteds bay.

As a kid my dad used to bring us to those channels and fish during the day. Used to catch a lot of nice panfish, some nice bass, and the occasional pike. You'll have to deal with some people usually, but it was always fun.

Grays to Wayzata (overnight parking avail)

Maxwell to Crystal

Cooks to Emerald

Narrows

There are others, although most have private property on both sides. These four have all produced walleyes (and everything else) for me at one time or another. Best bet is going to be from sunset to midnight, in which case you can park on city streets.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
