yeah, I haven't been out there for 2 weeks now.

Is anyone still fishing or is everyone else waiting a for the temp to drop?

What is the water temp now?

62?

temp is 62 good guess. Very slow so far. I can find fish. Jig and minnow would be the ticket but not my cup of tea. The eyes are holding on bottom transition near breaks - look for them around 20ft down. Weeds are still up but starting to lay down. The fall bite is coming....

Thanks for the info! Do you fish 'tonka until freeze-up? And how is fishing just prior to freeze-up?

Buoys are out and probably will be for another two weeks or so. And I fish Tonka until I can't break the ice at the landing. The musky bite is great in late fall and the big walleyes keep chomping too.

How is the pike fishing in the fall on 'Tonka? I noticed things are slowing down a little each week... at least for me. Maybe there is a trick to fall fishing for Pike. One might think the pike will be going more shallow this time of year, but the weeds are starting to die off as well. If anyone has any insight, let me know. E-mail: steffanf @hotmail.com

Was out Saturday morning from about 9-11. 65 degree water. Couple walleyes in 25 feet of water. A few bass along the weed edge. The bite is still a ways off... bring on the cold weather.

Been having muskie luck over shallow weeds in the last hour of light using a sucker colored suick.

Good Luck

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
