2 fish caught | Lunker: 6lb Northern Pike

Fishing on a hot sunny day. Using sucker minnows,( live and dead ) Didnt take long for the Bass and Northerns to find my bait suspended about 7-8 feet below my bobber in 14' of water. Firs fish came at about the 20 min mark and each susiquent fish came about every 10-20 mins. All were of good eating size and many were very feisty. Puting up many good fights. I was fishing about 200 yards from one of the many channels on this lake and have always had good luck. Best to fish in the mornings there because Minnetonka is the number one recreational lake in the state. Usually I get off the lake by 3:00p.m. because thats whene all the skiers and power boaters start showing up and make it hard to fish. Good luck to all.

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.
