Anyone have any ideas of where to catch some large mouths on Tetonka. I have my brother coming down tonight and we are heading out there early Saturday morning. Thanks....

12FOW!!!

I've been catching some nice ones just off willow point. from the landing go out to 12 FOW turn left, as you pass willow point the break from 5-12 will become very sharp find the weed on the break. That is where some Bass are. The point straight across from best point is a spot where we have cought a 3lb Bass the last two days.

If you want some good fun troll a gold and orange Hot & Tot (The smaller size) in 12 fow. We had a super day out there today doing just that. We had a double of a 17.5" Walleye and a 27" Northern. The largest fish was a 31" Northern. We did catch Bass doing this also.

The day after a front went through and it was the best day on Tetonka this year. What's the deal with that?

You're gonna get a lot of tight lips on this one. The Ultimate Bass and Southern MN Bass tours will both be there in the next 6 weeks. You'll probably see some pre-fishing going on at every depth level over the next month and a half.

A 3# avg won't put you in the cash out there. Last year almost 22# won the S.M.B.T. (5 fish). It took almost 18# to take the bottom check. Good luck.

Not every time. Madison in the Ultimate was humbling. Wind did us in. I would have that weighing in 20-14 on Lura would have put us in a little better Team of the Year position in the SMBT.

I saw pics of a 7-13 bass that came out of Tetonka over the weekend. (on another site) I guess it was weighed on a couple scales at Best Point and then released.

I think we are up by 7 to the next closest in the SMBT after 3 of 5 events. After that there is another 5 or 6 point difference. Crossing fingers that the luck holds up.

Kato Guy

How is the bass fishing on Madison Lake? What type of weights normally win the tourneys that are held there? I haven't ever tried Madison for bass and was just curious as to what I could expect and if it is worth a shot.

Madison the last 3-4 years has been right around 15# on 5. Years before the winner was more like 18+ with many teams in the 15-17# range.

Yep, luck and the fact that the two-time reigning Champs split didn't hurt at all. tongue.gif (You'll be back next here LC, we'll be waiting to see who the partner is.)

Just wanted everyone to know that I took both of my younger brothers out to Tetonka on Saturday and we caught at least 40 bass, many 3.5 - 4.5lbs. It was a lot of fun. I agree with kato guy, you will need a at least a 4lb average to make the money on that lake. I would of been at around 21 lbs for my 5 biggest, and we only fished from 7am to around noon. This lake reminds me of clear lake in waseca years ago. I used to fish it a lot before I started fishing tournaments and we would catch numerous 4 - 5 lb bass every time out. Tetonka is my new favorite lake... Also, I gave my brother a lot of crap as we were fishing due to the fact that he had a 200 foot lot on the lake and sold it last year. Oh well...

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!  
    • leech~~
      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
