The spinner bait bight was going good on tonka a few weeks ago. I haven’t had time to go back seen but all we were doing was burning them over the top of the weeds. smirk.gif

I'm going to wait till the water temps get into the 50's before I pursue those Tonka eyes again...just not much happening there right now.

Hey Serpent, Care to share what you were doing when you picked up the eye's? I have heard a lot of guys say that they often pick them up while bass fishing and since I dont usually target bass, I would be intersted in knowing what worked for them.

Bumped into a guy a few nights ago coming off WBL with a chunky 28" fish (I would have thrown it back). He got it in about 10 feet with a #7 Shad Rap moving pretty fast. Said he missed a few other fish. I was fishing muskies so I can't speak from personal experience.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
