Using Gulp Chartreuse 2" jigging grubs, small sucker minnows and 6" Gulp worms my wife and I caught more than a dozen large mouth in an afternoon. If your not catching large mouth your probably not fishing Minnetonka.

I have not been out in a few days. I am looking to get out tomorrow for sure. I will let you know what I find and if I see any muskies.

Anybody been raising/catching muskys? Thinking about trying Tonka or Waconia. Looking for any information.

Finesse techniques are still putting the most fish in the boat. I check around some mid depth spots today and found them to be pretty empty. Best spots for quantity of fish is deeper weedlines. Tie on your favorite plastic bait and work the deep weedlines and you should be able to pick them up.

Seems like the spinnerbait bite was short lived and its back to fitness fishing. I have had the best luck on jig worms on the outside weedlines. I know other guys are getting nice fish tucked in the milfoil on the inside edge but its not a technique I like to use with customers in the boat. Good luck out there!

I am still getting lots of fish casting spinnerbaits along the weedlines. Also, casting plastics on real deep weedlines is working too. Good luck out there.

Overcast conditions were great for the morning bite prior to the rain. The girls with me boated several nice bass and quality northern pike. Getting out before the pleasure boaters was key. Cool

The fish started biting when it started raining Saturday morning. Having just bought a new ultra lite rod and reel I put on 14# test fire wire and a steel leader with a very small jig and a Berkeley Gulp Jigging Grub 2" Chartreuse and started catching sunfish and bass with almost every cast. After an hour I put a Rapala on a heavier rod and started casting for pike. When that didn't produce I went to a large Mepp for about a half hour. When that didn't produce I went to a 2 hook worm harness with a spinner on the front of it and a 4" chartreuse Gulp worm on a lighter action rod and started catching Bass and sunfish again. Minnetonka is a great lake for people like me with no patients, you can always catch bass and panfish.

The spinnerbait bite seems to be going well lately. Lots of bass and pike making their way into the net. Funny to see that we are also catching some crappies and bluegills on the big spinnerbaits as well!

Got out last night for a few hours. We ended up with 15 largemouths that ranged from 6"-14" and a couple of snakes. Most came on a drop ago but a few were on cranks.

Typically when you think fishing the earlier in the morning you head out the better... However I am having better luck fishing in the afternoons. Not sure if others are noticing that as well but maybe when the big boats start traveling around it wakes the fish up. Anyway, I have been catching the majority of my fish on drop shot rigs still. Its a fun way to fish if you havent done it before or dont do it often. You can nose hook 5" (or so worms) and also I have been mostly wacky rigging 4" to 4.5" worms. Color doesn't seem to matter a ton. Good luck out there!

Wow, the bite was on this afternoon! I picked up a ton of fish during my 3 hr guide trip and even a musky. It was only 31" but the customer had fun catching it on a drop shot rig! I found all my fish out in the deeper weedlines. I kept the boat in 19'-20' and we casted the drop shot rigs in from there.

Water temps are still hovering in the upper 70's. With the current cool front I dont see that changing much. Last night all the fish I caught were on the deep weedlines 18' to 22'. I did check shallower and only got one bite and it came off right away. I am back at it this afternoon so I will update if anything has changed.

Water temps are hovering around the 78 - 80 degree mark. I didn't fish this past weekend due to heavy boat traffic but I plan to be out again tomorrow afternoon. Was anyone able to make it out fishing over the weekend?

Fish are bitting well as of yesterday. I made it out with the family and ended up doing really well. Most fish came casting deep running Rapala's (DT14's, DT 16's, and Rippin' Raps). 2nd best was throwing drop shot rigs. Good luck out there.
