Tonka first timer

2 posts in this topic

I have never fished Tonka before and will be heading out this weekend with my daughter. She loves to catch bass off the dock at our cabin and I would like to see if we can get a few but I have no idea what area of the lake to try. I am not asking for specific spots but if someone could give me a general idea on where to start that would be great. She catches all her fish at the cabin on senkos so that is what we will be doing. I have read that the docks are a good place to start but I am concerned about her casting because I am sure we would spend more time getting her hook of the dock then fishing. I would appreciate any information. Thanks

Find any outside or inside weed edge and throw the senkos there. You should have fun. Also introduce her to buzz baits in morning and evenings and spinner baits during day on top of weeds. You should have plenty of action with both bass and northern.

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
