Well Larry's repaired my command center, it was the shift lever assembly that needed replacing, I am back to having forward, neutral and reverse.  I got back out on Friday and caught a number of Bass, a couple of Pike and a bit of sunburn, don't let anyone tell you you won't get sunburned on a cloudy day, Hard to believe they get more than $55 for this $5 component, and even harder to believe Johnson designed such a Mickey Mouse system.

I have had a few problems with my boat this year, first my steering cable, which I replaced and now the Johnson Command Center, which seems to have lost reverse. Hopefully Blue Lagoon will have a Shift Lever Assembly and Larry's Marine service will be able to replace it for me. Last week when I did go out on the lake I was doing everything I could to stay out of the sun and I managed to hook more than a dozen Bass, a number of Rock Bass and a few Crappie.

Hit Minnetonka at 5 am this morning.Surface temp was 82.We found most our fish on deep weed lines in the 18 to 20 foot range. Bass hit deep cranks and 8" plastic culprits with mushroom jig head.Lake is really blooming with algae.More so on west end. Water as usual much clearer on east side with deeper weed lines. Have a safe 4th of July weekend.Stay healthy and be kind.

Good to see more posts to LL on Minnetonka. I have heard a lot of fishing stories about Halstead bay and have gone into it a couple of times. Every time I have been there it was green and disgusting. The closer you get to six mile creek the greener it gets. The fertilizers flowing in from the creek make it so when you put your hand in the water, you can't see your hand.  I do fish Cook, Phelps, Priest, Spring Park bays regularly and Black Lake almost daily because its my back yard.

First time fishing at Halstead's Bay of Lake Minnetonka!   I got on at a fishing dock located at Kings Point. There is no boat landing so natural there were no people!   The fishing dock had maybe 6-8 parking spots including a handicap spot.   

I launched my kayak at the shallow swampy area directly in front of the parking lot. There were tons of carp flopping around in the water!   As I make my way through the weeds I found that fishing from the dock would be next to impossible due to all the weeds. The water depth was around 5-7 feet. 

I kept it simple and fished a few boat docks directly left of the fishing dock with some pan fish lures. The water was about 5-7 feet deep in front of the docks. Every cast was almost a crappie, with a few gills and sunnies. I caught a smaller large mouth bass also. I didn't have time to explore the whole bay area but I did get to paddle around the area in front of the fishing dock. The water gets to about 17 feet deep and then gradual gets up to that 5-7 fow near the boat docks and weed lines. 

This is an interesting area to fish and I look forward to getting out to see if I can land the infamous Minnesota Muskie!

Sometimes the Bass won't leave me alone and sometimes they are nowhere to be found. but if you don't catch some Bass your doing something wrong!




Lots of Largemouth

I just want to welcome "nottaken" to Lake-Link. I'm happy to have someone else posting photos and remarks about Minnetonka. I apologize for taking so long to put this out there but I don't normally post if I don't have pictures to go along with the post. I fish Minnetonka regularly because I live on Black Lake. I fish more of the dock out back than going out in the boat, but I am out in the boat on Mondays and Fridays normally.  Here is the back yard and a Rock Bass in Stillwater MN . Keep posting nottaken and welcome.

            Minnetonka is full of Largemouth

Crappies are moving shallow again. The snow and cold moved them deeper last week but as the sun warms water back to 50s we are finding them in 6 to 9 feet of water.
