Passed Independence yesterday and there was a half ton out there. Watched them drive off and they were pushing a lot of snow but they made it.

This past weekend travel was tough outside of the roads. Lots of snow. Got through it but there was a few tow-strap situations between the trucks to get out.

With the warmer weather idk if that's helped or hindered travel outside the roads.

The 2017 season seemed to have a great walleye bite almost everywhere in the state. This season has been less than ideal for the lakes I've been hitting. While most of my lakes are near the Metro or Mille Lacs, just curious if anyone else has had the same thoughts.

Maybe I just forgot how to walleye fish.

If you can, you really gotta just head north every weekend.

I've been fishing breaks, but there's not ton of structure on that lake. It get's pretty pounded every weekend as well.

Gonna try hitting Tonka, way out in the main lake and fish deep structure.

There are fish in Indie, just the past few times I've been there they didn't like what I had to offer.

I'm going the opposite. Sick of Indy, doing Tonka during the evenings now.

I agree with @notfishfisherman. Navionics a great tool to get you close but you still gotta drill a line of holes or 20 before you sit down and fish. Lakemaster/chips is no doubt a better tool but for $10 Navionics is a cheap alternate.

With Navionics you can set the water level in the settings. This is nice because it allows you to basically sync it with your vexilar so that you show identical data.

So you are only fishing the bays? or tips of reefs?

The main parts of tonka are deep. Tons of structure but most of it only comes up to 25' feet at the shallowest in those areas.


That's correct MuskieTooth, I rarely venture east of Big Island. Spend most my time on the west end of the lake. Most of the fish I target are relating to the weeds. Early in the year they stay shallow all day long, but it seems more important this time of year to be immediately adjacent to deep water. The walleyes slide up during prime time and into the night feeding on the weed flats.



Hmm. Appreciate the info. Still trying the learn Tonka, it's defiantly not the easiest lake to learn.

Nice work guys! Anyone willing to point me in the direction of an access or bay for this weekend to drive out with the wheelhouse? I don't need your honey hole, just a safe place to access the lake. I want to put my brother in law on some fish for his birthday this weekend, but have almost no experience on Lake Minnetonka. Thanks for any help you can offer!



You can get a wheelhouse out of Wayzata bay from the beach access. There's a pretty plowed road going out of there.
