Looking to take my girl out fishing for the first time.  I'm not much of a sport Fisher anymore.  Any places in Minnetonka that hold the most carp?  Plan to toss out a line with corn and just set it to the side while I teach my girl.  Access friendly, no Rocky edges and hard to access areas.  I'm thinking the bike path down to the bridge over at browns bay could hold a lot of carp since it's mostly cat tails.  Plus the bridge has nice flat rocks that we can get down on easily with room and space to have a nice set up for a few hours to fish.

Any reason you are set on Minnetonka?  

 

I think the river might be a better bet.

 

I have heard about big carp around lord fletchers.

Oh I just figured Tonka because I've caught a 15 pound carp their and see them swimming.  Then as my rods in a holder I can then teach my girl and go for sun fish.  Simple, fun, no current.  Fish for the both of us.

I know......but the gentleman asked for tips on Tonka.  The replies were sillytownish.  My apologies.  With that said wont hijack the post further than i already have as i am not a source of info on Tonka.

Try the narrow channel on Enchanted Isle.  The shallow water holds carp and sunnies this time of year, giving you plentiful small action and the occasional larger fish to reel in.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
