Brown's Bay Tonka access tune-up

Recommended Posts

A friend and I plan to tackle the Brown's Bay ice access (off hwy 12) before ice-up. Hope to smooth it out and improve the slope for driving access to the ice, maybe move a few of those slabs a bit. My truck doesn't have very good clearance and if you've been wondering who left all that green paint on the rocks, well, wonder no more. Probably not that big a job, and many hands make light work. Anybody else want to pitch in, maybe suggest a date?

You might want to check with the city fathers before you start messing around doing anything to the lake shore!

yeah, good point. But not good enough...I'm not planning anything grand, so I guess this will be one of those "better to apologize than ask permission". Actually I was hoping mainly to meet some of the anglers on that lake and pump them for info. You guys can take up a collection to go my bail if I get jugged for it.

I fished Brown's bay about 4 yrs. ago. quite heavily, I usually drove a Suzuki Swift, boy what a ride that was. Getting up that hill was not easy. To make it more interesting I had my fish house strapped to the top, home made 4x8 when it was dark, my house had a very lit up look to it red and white. It was scary getting off the lake, had to make sure no one was coming, never could tell how far I was going to be launched. big crappies though. I usually fished 12-15 ft. of water. somewhat in the middle of the bay.
I could possibly help out, however, I do not want to about it illegally.

I'll check with the authorities. Would that be Wayzata, or the Lake Minnetonka Conservation District, or Carl Pohlad, or Al Lindner? Anybody have any idea?

    • friend good luck to you and your wife!!!!   I do know where you are at....  my prayers to ya............
    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
