Recommended Posts

dartsportsteve

Hey guys, first off I wanted to say hi as its my first post here. I love to fish but don't know what I'm doing half the time so I love this resource.

I'm headed out to Tetonka tomorrow morn to get out of the house. Any recommendations? I'm probably going to go after crappies unless you guys have a better idea. Any advice for a rookie is appreciated! Thanks

First, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota and Hot Spot Outdoors. I have not been on this lake for awhile so I will be of no help to you. If you search within this forum for TeTeonka you will find much info. I'm sure someone with some current info will chime in.

Again, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota.

Dartsportsteve,

As HL already mentioned, welcome to FM. Indeed, you have came upon a great resource. You will definitely become addicted. grin.gif

As for Tetonka and "what's up", I recommend fishing the sand to mud transitions in 6 - 10' of water with plastics or blade baits. If that doesn't make them go crazy, I would focus on riggin' with floating jig heads and crawlers or suspended crank baits over the basin.

Thanks for the help guys... No luck today but doesn't mean I won't keep trying. If nothing else I couldn't ask for a nicer day to be floatin around!

      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!

      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.

      If you really want to challenge yourself, make the "hook" mostly barbless, which is what one of my kids somehow managed to do. Just aim for the toothiest area.....

      What lake? I'm in Moundsview so I like hearing about visibility nearby.  Struggling to find clear water this year. Poor visibility on Forest, Clear, Centerville so far. WBL has good visibility. But I hate spearing on muskie lakes. Plus, WBL doesn't have big pike per surveys.

      The only tying groups I know are here in the Twin Cities, and there are quite a few that gather during the winter months.  I'm not sure of any in the SW near you.
