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...

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
