Lake Minnetonka

Lake Minnetonka is one of the ten largest lakes in Minnesota and is the largest lake within commuting distance to Minneapolis and St. Paul, about 30 to 40 minute drive.  Lake Minnetonka has approximately 125 miles of lake shore and is about 14,500 acres.  The beauty of fishing this lake is all of the channels, lakes and bays.  There are smaller lakes within Lake Minnetonka that are connected by channels and each lake fishes differently because of the different depths, water clarity and weed growth.  With all of this diversity, it makes fishing this lake so much fun.
