Hey all - I'm new to the Minneapolis area, and I was wondering the best methods for approaching walleye on Minnetonka? I'm used to fishing a bit farther north, and I tend to use lindy rigs more often than not. I'm in the process of making some spinners and was curious as to which colors I should focus on? Up north, I tend to go yellow or white, maybe silver/copper on a sunny day.

Any suggestions for a newbie?

Hey MidwestSushi.

Welcome to My Fishing Pals. Glad to have you aboard!

I fish Minnetonka quite a bit, though when I fish there, I typically target the largemouth bass. Minnetonka is considered one of the best bucketmouth lakes in the country and we get pros from all over fishing for them.

As for walleye, the bite can be pretty tough. I know guys who fish that lake for 'eyes pretty regularly and they are typically frustrated. I've caught a few, usually by accident while using Texas rigs. The walleyes tend to stay pretty much on the weed edges at about 20 feet... that's where the milfoil ends.

There is a pretty good article that you can take a look at from Tim Lesmeister that will help you.

Thanks for the link. They are on point for the change in presentations for weed walleyes... I fished minnetonka this past winder and pulled a few nice eyes through the ice fishing for sunfish, but I just assumed that was a fluke. I had assumed that Minnetonka was more of a rocky lake, but I'll hit the deep weeds and see what happens grin smiley
