Minnewaska is a great fishery for almost every freshwater species. It is a large lake, at over 7000 acres. Not much structure, a few steep breaks that bottom out at about 35'. For walleyes, try pulling #5 shad raps at dusk in under 10' of water.
Live bait rigs can be successful during the day in deeper water. The lake is loaded with blugill & crappies. Right now, they are up shallow getting ready to spawn. They are a very easy catch, this may be the best time to fish panfish all year long. Muskie and big northerns also roam this body of water. Bucktails and large jerk baits should get their attention. The muskie action really heats up when the water temp rises during late June/July/August.
Minneweaska is one awesome fishery. There are endless spots to fish and PLENTY of fish to be caught! smile.gif

Good Luck,
Skeets

BFJ, check out the Alex forum, that is where your original thread has ended up. Someone originally moved it to South Central, but then moved it into Alex which is where is should be.

    • Fleet farm site has something called brushtox, looks like it is 61% triclopyr.  31 bucks a quart.
    • I think you should get one and we can go all over Burntside and Snowbank this winter in search of lake trout. Just keep your shirt on! 😀
    • Just don’t use crossbow when it’s above 80 or going to be above 80 or it kills the lawn as well. It’s a great product, spray on clover in the morning  and it’s brown by evening. 
    • Finally got to someone that does this for a living and well respected. Triclopyr at 16% with 34% 2-4-d is in a readily available product called Crossbow. He highly recommends it. Spot treat the weeds not the whole lawn. Weed b Gon max works great on the rest of the weeds. 
    • Well things are cooling down but the fishing over deep water continues to boat fish!  Didn't slay them but got 2 more eater's this weekend over the deep water trolling for about an hour and half towards sunset.  Benn using Rapala Shadow Raps as of late and have been impressed.
    • Need to take advantage before we play Boston and Washington . Be up by 4 or 5 games when we get to those series.
    • Did another round of cottage bacon ..... 10 days brining turning the package ever other day, rinse and rest overnight in the fridge, smoke and rest over night in the fridge, and then slicing. It is a long two week process, but well worth it! If you’ve never done it, I high recommend giving it a try! I did 4 pork butts and ended up with abound 20 lbs.... gave about half of it away already, but have 4 more butts ready to brine before winter!        
    • All puppies have been sold !
    • They need to take full advantage of the easier games coming up.  I would like to see them get about 5-6 games ahead again.
    • Well painting is getting there.  The fenders and swing arm/axles are fully painted but I only managed to get about half of the frame painted.  I will get it finished up this week.  I have too because I have a large load of rock coming to finish my driveway expansion so I have a place to park my fish house this winter haha.
