Lake Minnetonka Bass Tournaments-- Catch Summaries

 

Because black bass species are under-sampled in MN DNR netting surveys relative to actual abundance, fishing tournament reports add insight about Lake Minnetonka's bass populations.  Values are from sponsor-submitted Tournament Fishing Reports, with accuracy not verified by MN DNR Fisheries.  LMB = largemouth bass, SMB = smallmouth bass.
