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.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Briggs is open as far as I could see.I will be out that way again tomorrow I'll get another glance and see if I spot some on a different side of the lake

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
