Hotter than a pot roast and a great day for a sun burn. The Bass were hungry and would hit on anything I threw at them! My guess is the one that hit this snake is in the 5 lb range. I caught a lot of bass but most of them were in the 1-2 lb range. The lake was busy this after noon so I pulled my boat out and left the lake for the citiettes!
76° - 80° F
91° - 95° F
The lake warmed up early this year but if you know where to look you will find the fish! Most of the bay's I was in the water was clear enough to see down 10-15 feet into the water. It's fun to watch the fish hit your lures or minnows. With as hot as it's been early morning or late evenings is mandatory!
56° - 60° F
61° - 65° F
This looks to be another great year for fishing!
Hit Grays Bay launch at 2 yesterday, pretty busy but everyone was moving good.Started on Wayzata bay and the temp in the main lake was 42,Crappies were still deep to the best of my knowledge.Started to hit the inlets that I have had success years prior.The inlets showed 52 for temp. Crappies seemed very eager to bite. Using pink flu flu tipped with a Wayzata bait crappie minnow.Kept a limit for our MilleLacs opener. Good luck out there and be kind.
73 Days until fishing opener in Minnesota. That seems like a long time! Any guess on when the Ice is off Lake Minnetonka? In 2017 the first time I had the boat in the water was March 29, 2017. I'll bet it wasn't a very warm experience.
RE: "catching a lot of sunfish that would be good bait"
Same for us on Grays Bay Saturday. Caught a couple "decent" sunnies (but really only by comparison to the dinks that were coming up) and my brother managed one decent crappie.
Below 40° F
31° - 35° F
A beautiful day on Minnetonka. 35 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. There was a guy with a young son and daughter siting on chairs on the ice and having a good time catching fish with their dad. I set up my portable after hand drilling 3 holes through at least 2' of ice. I spent about 3 1/2 hours watching my CFish camera and catching a lot of sunfish that would be good bait for Bass. It could be my last time out on this fishing license....
went out for a few hours today. Things were pretty slow. Caught a couple blue gills but that was it. Hopefully the warm weather will improve the bite.
nottaken, in the last 2 posts you say speak of a camera but there are no photos posted?
