When fishing in Minnesota, many people return repeatedly to fishing Lake Minnetonka. The bountiful Lake Minnetonka is known among avid anglers to provide some of the best largemouth bass fishing available. In fact, this Minnesota fishing lake was ranked last year as one of the top 10 best bass lakes in the nation by BASSMASTER Magazine. Minnetonka is the largest lake in the Twin Cities area. It consists of a varied collection of basins and bays providing a range of bottom types, depths, and fertility, which means a large and diverse fish population can be found in its waters. Fishing Minnetonka waters can snag you the great state fish of Minnesota, the walleye, as well as northern pike, muskies, and a variety of smaller panfish, depending on the area and season in which you choose to ply your rod and reel.
If fishing Lake Minnetonka is on your itinerary, you can find all of the equipment, food and lodging, and boats you may need within the surrounding communities of Wayzata, Minnetonka, and Excelsior. You can pick up bait and tackle at Wayzata Bait and Tackle, find a boat rental Lake Minnetonka at Rockvam Boat Yards, Inc., or hire Lake Minnetonka fishing guides or sign the kids up for fishing camp with Jasper Guide Service.
