Muskie action has been incredible in 14 feet with sucker minnows under a float producing the biggest fish. Walleye reports also have improved during the evening hours. Minnows fished in and around the channels or on the deep side of the green, standing weeds in 18 to 24 feet are producing. Look for crappies in the channels or the mouth of the channels during the evening hours.

It's MUSKIE TIME! The muskies on Lake Minnetonka are starting their annual "food binge" before winter. They have been active in shallow water from 1ft-8ft along the sandy, rocky, inside weedlines across the lake. Early morning and late in the day have been the best times to target them. My favorite presentation this time of year is to throw prop-style topwater baits along these inside weedlines. Smaller bucktails burned in these same areas will also trigger muskies. Watch the weather and if you can plan your trips ahead of the cold fronts we typically start getting you will increase your chances of hooking up.
The bass are also starting to show up in shallower water and we have caught some nice fishing throwing spinnerbaits, rattle traps, and swim baits in the 8-12ft range along the bigger weed flats close to deep water. Some fish are still schooled up and can be caught using a jigworm on the edge.
Northern pike are active on the same bass presentations so make sure you have a heavy mono leader or steel leader if you want to keep your lures. Good luck out ther.
