Fishing season is just around the bend 

Passage way to Lake Minnetonka. If you're searching Minnesota for great, early Spring fishing excitement this side of Canada, you've found it. And it'll be happening all around you... that  is if you are willing to brave a little chill. Spring ice out is one of the most tranquil times and most productive fishing throughout the entire fishing season. Why, you ask? 

To begin with, there are no crowds and there's certainly no bugs. Besides the ice fishing season, fishing Lake Minnetonka in the Spring is quiet and peaceful. New growth surrounds you. Trees are budding, forest plants are sprouting and critters and waterfowl are easily and often identified. Spring is a time of rebirth, a renewed spirit and a great time to be in the out of doors watching it all unfold Early Spring Lake Minnetonka Fishing What's there to fish for? Primarily crappies and pan fish. Spring is an ideal time to practice your casting and fishing maneuvers fishing for bluegill.

It'll be the big ones you catch. Water temps are chilly, lake vegetation is only beginning to emerge and water levels are high. You're going to have to fish them deep- that is until water temps start reaching 60 degrees. 

Ice fishing tactics work best. However, after a good heavy, wet Spring rain you can be assured worms, grubs and night crawlers are appealing appetizers for bonus-sized bluegills and black crappies. 

If you can get away early spring, by all means try it... you'll be hooked lined and sinkered for good.
