The ice is gone AGAIN. This time I don't think its coming back. My guess is the official ICE OUT on Minnetonka will happen in the next 24/48 hours. The wind was cold and with no action in 20 minutes I went over to Fletcher's and had a Walleye sandwich

Spring fishing is ALMOST here!

As the photos show it is iced over under the Narrows bridge again. I never got a line into the water, but I did see a large boat out on Smiths Bay running along side the sheet of ice that stretches up to the shoreline.

Summer fishing on Minnetonka won't be long

I took advantage of the open water under the Narrows Bridge for the last couple of weeks, even bought a 2017 license and went out on March 2nd. I only caught cold, but it was good to get a line in the water. Black Lake is open under the bridge to Spring Park Bay and along the shoreline. I walked out about 20' and realized it wasn't a smart idea to go out ice fishing. I got a couple of good photos and am anxious to get my boat in the water.

On 2/6/2017 I went out on Black Lake and renewed a couple of holes that were probably from the day before. Without my CFish camera this would have been a TOTAL waste of time. As you can see the pig that punched the holes originally dropped a beer bottle that landed upright directly under one of the holes I renewed. It did give me a point of reference as to which way I had my camera pointing. I caught 1 small Perch. Attached is a link to a sight I am trying to put together to promote fishing in Minnesota! Contact me if you have any ideas or photos for the sight!

Sunday the 8th of January was a nice day, with little wind and lots of sun shine. A few minutes after my dark blue portable was set up it was warm enough you couldn't see your breath and didn't need a heavy coat. I could hear the guys around me getting excited when they caught 2 or 3 of  the little Sunfish using Crappie minnows, and I saw hundreds of them but never caught any. Its the 22nd of January now and has been above freezing for about 4 days now. There is about 2" of water sitting on the ice and any fish house left on the lake this coming week will become frozen in the

November 16th the wind was 10-15 MPH, the Bass were on the edge of the weeds/drop off, and hitting on fatheads. I caught 1 northern 1 perch and 8 large mouth 2-4 lbs and saw another HUGE muskie on the west shore of Upper West Lake. I am going to try to catch one of those monsters, but when I do I don't know how I will get it in the boat, and I am not sure I want to. In the last 2 weeks I have seen at least 6 Muskie that were at least 4 feet long, and I only have about 5 feet of floor space in my boat. Two days later we got our first freeze and snow. Now the lake should turn over and the fish will be hard to find.

The last two weeks in August and the first week in September fishing was slow for me, the water temp was around 80 degree's and the heat was intense. The last couple of days I have found some large mouth, and caught a few nice ones on small rattle traps.

Am I the only one that posts to this sight? I am sure there are great photos of big fish out of Minnetonka this year. Let's see some of them!

On 8-23-16 I got out at sun rise and spent 4 hours looking for fish. I saw some in 25' of water suspended a couple of feet off the bottom. Even my hummingbird couldn't find them. It is one of the first times I have gone out and not caught at least one large mouth. I quit by noon, lunch and a nap sounded better than getting any more sun. Fall fishing will be here soon enough, and the rain has water levelshigh.

Went out early Friday 8-5-2016 and fishing was slow just like the graph on lake-link said it would be. With the pressure being above 30.05 I didn't plan to have a trophy day. Howard's point marina gave me a few boxes of worms that were past their prime and I did catch half a dozen large mouth and at least 3 dozen sunfish. The biggest large mouth was about 3 lbs. Two guys on jet ski's came along side me and asked if I was jemstone, they recognized the boat from this web sight. I will be out again on Sunday but as soon as the citiots and the spoiled rich brats take over the lake with power boats and jet ski'e I will call it a day

I agree with Jemstone90.  Bite has been really good on the lake.  Throw your favorite setup and you should find plenty to hook into.  Some of my favorites are the old standbys, spinnerbaits, jigworm, dropshots, and rigging sucker minnows.  Good luck out there!
