Muskie Action

5 posts in this topic

Hitting tonka Wednesday after work to look for some muskies. First time out this year for the big guys. What bays have guys been getting follows in? Depth? You throwing bucktails and big crankbaits? Any live bait activity? Thanks for your thoughts.

Dead sea for me. I finally gave up on that lake.

I don't know that any one bay is better than another. The lake has great structure everywhere. I would stick to bays away from the pleasure boat traffic, your going on a weekday which will help a lot.

It's been tough for me this year. Not even a follow...

But you never know - I've heard small (bass sized) bucktails have brought up a few fish??? confused.gif

The following baits have put fish in the boat for me this year on Tonka: Cowgirls, Suicks, & Big + Tasty. It seems like the fish have been holding a little bit farther off the weedlines. Be sure to water release everything right now as Tonka is still up there in temps. A picture of a water release is just as neat as one out of the water.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
