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

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
