Fished on Minnetonka with ok success.

Fished on Minnetonka with ok success. The smallmouth pulled up to their beds and were biting pretty good on the east end of the lake. There were still some largemouth on beds with about 50% being done and pulled off. The walleyes were still biting in the channels and in the dirty water by Halsted's.

Today Matt won First Place

Today Matt won First Place in the Second Annual Minnesota Twins' Doug Mientkiewicz Bass Fishing Classic on Lake Minnetonka - way to go Matt! The event raised $60,000 for Wildlife Forever, a Minnesota-based non-profit conservation organization dedicated to the preservation of fish and wildlife. The money, which was the most ever raised by a single event for the group, will be used to fund grants for sportsmen and conservation groups throughout the country.

Fished Waconia tonight with Steve

Fished Waconia tonight with Steve, a.k.a "Can Man". We had a great night of bass fishing. We caught 40 fish with two of them tipping the scales at 4 pounds. The majority of our fish came shallow on flukes and jigs. Tried the walleye bite for about an hour with no luck. We fished jigs and leeches for the walleyes and ended up with two sheepsheads and one bass.

I think the reason the walleyes were biting was because the sun was too high and the cold front. Hopefully this week we get some stable weather and the fish turn on. Was surprised to see how well the bass were biting with this cold front. Good Luck to all!

P.S. I have a wedding this weekend so you won't be hearing from me until next week.
