Minnewaska

Recommended Posts

Anyone know anything about Lake Minnewaska? I'm heading up there on Friday to do some prefishing. I'm basically starting from scratch with the maps.

I hear there are some dandy smallmouth in there, but that they're tough to find after they have spawned.

BBB was out there a few weeks back, it was won on smallies. if you can find them, stick to that all day, and you will win it.

The type of fishing on Minnewaska is very similar to Green Lake. You should be able to use the same presentations on there as you did on Green. (i seen pictures of you holding smallies in the picture post) From what i found this lake is loaded with smallies so you know the drill with them hard bottom. grin

Bass Bonanza was out there but the winning team won on Largemouth. Actually there was very few Smallmouth weighed in. Typically largemouth win events on that body of water after the spawn is done.

The lake is loaded with dandy largemouth and smallmouth. It'll probably take a 3.5lb average to win right now. The bulk of the smallmouth finished spawning about 3 weeks ago and should be ready to really feed, but don't ignore the largies. We won the Wed. night tournament last week and pulled over 20 3pounders off of one small spot in a short period of time. We had a hair under 17lbs. total on 5 fish. You'll have a good time out there.

It is true, the smallmouth have really started to blow up in that lake. I feel more comfortable fishing for the largemouth out there, mostly because I have primarily fished them in the past. It's a great lake and a lot of fun to fish.

the term "pros" is used alittle too loosely around here I prefer to call them boaters. any yahoo with a checkbook can fish as a "pro" the ones who get paid are the only ones who are. hence the difference between professional and amature. Sorry but I have fished a few pro-ams where the boaters ask me for spots because they have not put anytime into prefishing it.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
